4* 2016 C Ike Anigbogu commits to UCLA

Steve Alford continues thinking ahead as he lands his third 2016 commit.

Steve Alford has done two things very well at UCLA: he thinks ahead (three players in UCLA's class of 2016, already) and he knows how to recruit locally (all three hail from the Los Angeles-area).

The most recent addition to that trend? Corona, California's Ike Anigbogu, a three-star (per 247Sports, other outlets have him as a four-star) center who committed to the Bruins Thursday evening, per his AAU team Compton Magic.

Anigbogu brings some nice size to the Bruins class at six-foot-nine and 230 pounds. UCLA's other two 2016 commits, Lonzo Ball and Kobe Parras and both guards, so Anigbogu is a necessary addition.

Anigbogu's highlights from this season can be found below. He's a force in the paint, but could stand to put on a bit of weight before arriving at UCLA.
