Former I.U. recruit commits to UCLA
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A Bloomington South basketball player who rescinded his commitment to Indiana earlier this year has decided to play for UCLA.
Matt Carlino moved from Arizona to Indiana before this school year after verbally committing to Indiana in August 2008. He reconsidered his options this year and made an unofficial visit to UCLA last weekend. He also had visited Florida and had planned to visit Butler this week.
The 6-foot-2 guard will graduate high school a year early because he took summer classes before he left Arizona. He will leave for UCLA in June to take two summer classes.
Carlino said he liked coach UCLA coach Ben Howland and felt he could succeed there.
