UCLA Bruins get commitment from 13-year-old LaMelo Ball

BY foxsports • August 3, 2015

LaMelo Ball has no interest in waiting until National Signing Day to announce where he will play college hoops.

Keep in mind, Ball is 13 years old, but he's the most heralded 13-year-old in the country. Therefore, the hoops phenom decided to announce where he'll play college ball four years early. He is an incoming freshman at Chino Hills (Calif.) High School and has some serious talent.

Ball has two older brothers committed to UCLA as well. Junior LiAngelo and senior Lonzo have both pledged their services to Alford in 2016 and 2017, respectively. The three brothers will be on the Chino Hills court together during the 2015-16 season. Ball becomes the first player from the class of 2019 to give a verbal commitment.
