From Staff Writer Michelle Gardner:
A third Ball is headed to UCLA.
No not Lonzo or younger brother LiAngelo. It’s the youngest of the family.
LaMelo Ball, 13, the youngest brother in the basketball playing family said today he too has committed to the Bruins even though he has yet to play a high school game.
“It is my dream school,” he said. “I decided to get it out of the way now instead of waiting for the future.”
Other schools looking at the youngest Ball included Virginia and Washington State but he opted to follow his brothers, although he said that wasn’t a major factor.
Lonzo, who will be a senior this fall, committed to the Bruins as a sophomore and last year as a sophomore LiAngelo did the same. All three will play together for the Huskies but they won;t be together at UCLA even for a year because Lonzo has made it known he wants to be “one and done” at UCLA.
The three brothers on the same floor will be a marquee attraction this winter. The three brothers combined for 93 points in a recent travel ball game for Big Ballers.
