2018 Stars Reddish, Brown, Reid, Quinerly, Smart Among Those Visiting UCLA
With the Under Armor and Nike stops in the Los Angeles area over the holiday weekend, UCLA is taking advantage.
The Bruins will host a group of Class of 2018 stars, including Cam Reddish, 6-foot-7 guard from the Westtown (PA) School; Moses Brown, the 7-1 junior big man from Archbishop Molloy; Naz Reid, the 6-10 post from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic; Jahvon Quinerly, the 6-2 point guard from Hudson (N.J.) Catholic; Javonte Smart, the 6-5 point guard from Scotlandville Magnet High School (LA); Elijah Weaver, the 6-5 point guard from Oldsmar (FL) Christian; and Khavon Moore, the 6-8 small forward from Macon (GA) Westside, sources told ZAGSBLOG.
Reddish is ranked No. 4 in the 2018 ESPN 60, Brown is No. 6, Moore is No. 8, Reid is No. 11, Quinerly is No. 21, Smart is No. 23 and Weaver is No. 41.
Among the 2019 players are Joey Baker, Will Baker, Keion Brooks and Josh Green.
Reddish, a five-star wing, has narrowed his list to Arizona, Connecticut, Duke, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami, UCLA and Villanova.
Brown, who hopes to cut his list this summer, should have his pick of schools. Duke, Florida, Kansas, Louisville and St. John’s are among the schools that have been courting him.
Reid recently cut his list to 10, Arizona, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, North Carolina, Rutgers, Seton Hall, UCLA and UConn.
Quinerly has a top seven that includes Arizona, Kansas, Seton Hall, Stanford, Villanova, Virginia and UCLA.
