West Coast sleeper picks UCLA

This time around, it looks like Noah Allen's commitment will stick.

After initially committing to Harvard back in July, the 6-foot-6 small forward from Salinas (Calif.) Palma opened things up.

Over the weekend, the sharp-shooting three-star wing was in Westwood for a visit to UCLA and after taking a few days to think things over, he took to Twitter to announce his commitment to Ben Howland and the Bruins.

"Committed to be a UCLA Bruin," Allen wrote. "Can't wait to get down to Westwood and put in this work."

An intelligent player capable of stretching defenses with his perimeter jump-shooting, Allen has a nice all-around game. He is a fine athlete, can handle the ball some and is a dangerous passer. At the time of his initial commitment to Harvard, Allen told Rivals.com that addressing his all-around game was a focus.

"I think I've added a lot more," he said. "I can pass and I'm definitely not just a shooter. I've improved all over and my intensity and handles have really picked up."

Allen joins four-star guards Zach LaVine and Allerik Freeman in a perimeter-heavy 2013 recruiting class for the Bruins.
