“A lot of things have been going on these past couple of weeks,” Ali told Rivals.com. “I just felt that UCLA was the best situation for me to go and excel as a college basketball player and the best situation for me to ultimately play in the pros which is everybody’s dream.”
A native New Yorker, Ali plays at The Sagemont School in Weston, Fla., where he was once teammates with UCLA freshman forward Gyorgy Goloman.
