UCLA is ranked No. 15 on ESPN's final men's college basketball recruiting rankings. MaxPreps has UCLA's class at No. 16. Those rankings are the highest of any school in the Pac-10.
Here is what ESPN has to say about the four-person class.
"Josh Smith (Covington, Wash./Kentwood), No. 20 in the ESPNU 100 and the No. 2 center, has as much upside as any big man in the country. At 6-9, 320 pounds, he is nearly unstoppable in the paint when he's in shape and determined. He can be a force on the defensive end with his shot-blocking and rebounding. He is remarkably agile and light on his feet and offensively, he has terrific hands and possesses savvy beyond his years. He has NBA talent if he keeps his weight in check and stays focused. Tyler Lamb (Santa Ana, Calif./Mater Dei), No. 29 in the ESPNU 100 and the No. 5 SG, is a versatile off guard who can fill the stat sheet in so many ways and finds a way to make his team better every night. He should be an immediate contributor due to his all-around game. Junior college point guard Lazeric Jones (Cartersville, Ill./Logan Community College) is very explosive and good at slashing through defenses with either hand. Combo guard Matt Carlino (Bloomington, Ind./South) has range out to 20 feet, is a good rebounder, a solid passer and has a high basketball IQ."
