The new contract, which runs through the 2014-15 season, includes guaranteed compensation of $1.97 million for the 2008-09 season and escalates to $2.3 million for the 2014-15 season. It also includes the incentive package from his previous contract that has a maximum value of $235,000.
Nice to see that UCLA stopped being cheap. Well, with their mens basketball coach, anyway...
Tyler Lamb committed to the Bruins for the 2010 class.
This is one of those commitments that will (if he progresses realistically) look better later than it does now. Not a guy that is well known/regarded nationally, but looks very much to be known as an elite guard/wing type prospect by the time he reaches UCLA.
It is also rumored that UCLA leads for Tyler Honeycutt in the 2009 class. He is a badly needed small forward, and one of the best small forward prospects in the nation. Fingers crossed.
Not sure anyone cares... feel like I'm talking to myself here... but...
Class of 2009 center Anthony Stover just committed to UCLA. He's an elite shot-blocking prospect. By all accounts, he's a "Howland kid" in that he's straight-laced with a supportive family, an interest in education, and a willingness to work.
We're one shooting guard away from another obscene recruiting class by Howland.
You're not talking to yourself. I don't have access to this good info so I love that you are posting it.
I was hoping we could get a team that could end up being a group of great athletes instead of a couple of big time stars that will just leave. Sounds like Howland is trying to build up that kind of team.
