UCLA Basketball: San Diego SG Norman Powell Commits To Bruins
Top shooting guard prospect Norman Powell has committed to UCLA, choosing the Bruins over San Diego State and Arizona.
After point guard Josiah Turner committed to Arizona recently, Powell, Scout.com’s No. 15 shooting guard, became the team’s No. 1 priority.
Powell plays at Lincoln High in San Diego. Powell plays for former Van Nuys coach Jason Bryant and helped lead the Hornets to a Div. II state championship last March.
This is a great get for Coach Ben Howland and the Bruins. Powell is said to be a great athlete and should fit right into Malcolm Lee’s spot at SG if Lee leaves for the NBA after this season.
