Shooting guard LiAngelo Ball verbally commits to UCLA men’s basketball

Class of 2017 shooting guard LiAngelo Ball verbally committed to UCLA men’s basketball Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

Ball is a three-star prospect on, and is the younger brother of UCLA’s top recruit in the class of 2016 – five-star point guard Lonzo Ball. The younger Ball is listed at the same height as his brother – 6 feet 5 inches. Both currently play for Chino Hills High School.

Last December, the future Bruins combined to score 83 points in a 111-80 victory over Dorsey High School. LiAngelo Ball scored 53 and Lonzo Ball scored 30.

LiAngelo Ball is UCLA’s first verbal commitment in the class of 2017.
