THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150
Everything was set for five-star Kevon Looney to have a nice quiet announcement at Milwaukee (Wisc.) Hamilton High in front of his friends, family and some media. Then a little bit of drama hit.
Somebody at the Milwaukee Public Schools put the kibosh on the No. 13 player in 2014's planned 11 a.m. announcement. After some drama, things were put back in place and he was all set after the press conference got pushed back to 1 p.m.
During a press conference, Looney announced that he would attend UCLA and play for new coach Steve Alford in a decision that caught all who had followed the recruitment off guard.
Heading into the decision, his final destination was a closely guarded secret, but of the finalists UCLA was considered by many to be the longest of shots. Looney turned the tables quickly with his announcement.
One of the more skilled and fundamentally strong big men in the class of 2014, Looney can hurt an opponent in a variety of ways. He is a good finisher in the lane, rebounds on both ends of the floor, runs in transition and can stick jumpers to the three point line.
Looney is willing to play physically, is a team player and limits his mistakes by not trying to do anything out of his comfort zone.
The five-star is the Bruins second commitment and joins a class that already includes Hungarian big man Gyorgy Goloman.
