    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    UCLA is the latest school to offer 6-foot-7 2015 small forward Ray Smith of Las Vegas High.

    The Bruins offered Smith on Friday after Smith went for 20 points and 8 rebounds in a game.

    “UCLA was at the game and so was USC,” his AAU coach, Clay Williams, told SNY.tv. “I don’t think they went away disappointed.”

    Williams said UCLA, Arizona, Kansas, San Diego State and UNLV “are all working hard” for Smith, who runs with the Dream Vision AAU program that also features Stephen Zimmerman and Chase Jeter.

    Duke, Oregon and others are also involved, he said.

    “I think at his pace of improvement he will be shaking the [NBA] Commissioner’s hand” eventually,” Williams said.
