UCLA has received a signed grant-in-aid form from high school senior J'Mison Morgan, Bruin head coach Ben Howland announced today.

"I am very, very excited that J'Mison is going to be attending UCLA and be a part of our program," said Howland.

"He is a true center with excellent hands and outstanding overall skills. He is a fine passer, shot blocker and rebounder. J'Mison completes a five-player 2008 class that we believe gives us a great foundation for the future."

Morgan, from South Oak Cliff High in Dallas, TX, joins a UCLA freshman class ranked No. 1 nationally by virtually every recruiting service and website. It includes forward Drew Gordon and guards Jrue Holiday, Jerime Anderson and Malcolm Lee.

The 6-10, 248-pound senior was rated the nation's No. 2 center by Scout.com and the No. 4 player at his position by Rivals.com. He originally signed a letter of intent with LSU but was released from that commitment last month.

Morgan averaged 13.5 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots for South Oak Cliff.
