Evan Burns, a 6-8, 220-pound forward from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, will not be enrolling at UCLA, it was announced today.
Burns' National Letter-of-Intent, signed last April, will be voided by UCLA because he did not meet NCAA initial eligibility requirements. UCLA does not admit non- or partial qualifiers.
According to the Bruin coaching staff, Burns will pursue opportunities at other schools.
"Evan Burns is a talented young man who has a very bright future in basketball," said Bruin head coach Steve Lavin. "Our staff wishes him well in his future academic and athletic career."
