Love Picks Bruins
Kevin Love, considered the top post player in the Class of 2007, announced on Tuesday in Las Vegas that he will play his college ball at UCLA. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Love led the Reebok ABCD Camp held earlier this month in Hackensack, NJ in scoring and rebounding. He had narrowed his choices to UCLA and North Carolina, but said the chance to stay close to home (Oregon), to play for coach Ben Howland and to follow in the footsteps of Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were the deciding factors. "UCLA just feels right," he said.
In other news, Bob Huggins' lawyer is now representing Bill Walker in his case against the Ohio High School Athletic Association and says Walker has a strong case to be able to play next year. The No. 2-ranked high school player in the nation by rivals.com, Walker was previously ruled ineligible after it was determined he had exhausted his high school eligibility.
