In his first media appearance in UCLA colors, forward Wanaah Bail declined to talk about his reasons for leaving Texas Tech. The 6-foot-9 forward, still recovering from knee surgery, originally signed with Texas Tech in 2012 but left the school that summer.
He signed with the Bruins in June, and was cleared last week by the NCAA to play this season.
“I’m happy to be here,” Bail said. “I’ve got a great group of guys around me. I love the coaching staff. Let’s move forward.”
Work on handle a lot more and his shot. Feels comfortable shooting anywhere inside 20 feet. He said his knee feels good, but he is not certain when he will be cleared to practice.
