INSIDE THE UCLA BRUINS' CLASS
UCLA wasted no time making the No. 1 class in the nation official. Cori Close got signatures from all five players in her historic class on the opening day of the early signing period.
How good is it? Of the 13 prospects from California in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100, Close has landed four of them.
Take your pick of headliners, but we'll start with Jordin Canada, a 5-foot-6 point guard from Los Angeles and the No. 6 prospect in the nation. As a junior at Windward, she averaged 17 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds -- for a 32-1 team that was ranked fifth in the nation in the final espnW 25 Power Rankings.
Rounding out the class is Recee' Caldwell, a 5-8 point guard and the No. 9 prospect in the nation. Caldwell is a Southern California native who moved to San Antonio when she was in fifth grade.
"I'm really confident in this class," Hayes said. "We all come from winning programs, and we want to create our legacies at UCLA."
