While it seems like the next member of the Ball family to come through UCLA (LiAngelo) will probably be the focus for however long he’s on campus, if he’s around for the 2018-19 season, he’ll be sharing the spotlight with David Singleton.
Singleton, UCLA’s first (and only, at the moment) 2018 commit is a 6’4 guard from Torrance, California. He committed to the Bruins in late April over Oregon, Gonzaga, and USC, among others.
Speaking of LiAngelo Ball, you can see him in the video below. Singleton’s team is going up against Ball’s (#1) Chino Hills squad, and Singleton is letting it fly. Kind of a funny coincidence between the potential future teammates.
There isn’t a ton of video on Singleton, but that is oftentimes the case with players in high school. They don’t get on YouTube a bunch until their senior season, so you have to assume this upcoming season will provide us with a wealth of Singleton highlights.
As far as potential playing time at UCLA, Singleton should be able to find it. Looking ahead, Prince Ali and LiAngelo Ball are the only two other non walk-on shooting guards that may be on the roster for the 2018-19 season, barring additional recruits. Regardless of that, Singleton’s height is an asset in where he could potentially play.
In all, this is a solid start to the 2018 recruiting season for Steve Alford and the Bruins.
