While UCLA awaits the fate of star freshman wing Shabazz Muhammad, they got some good news on Saturday.

Al Freeman, a 6-foot-4 combo guard from Findlay Prep, verbally committed to the Bruins during his official visit.

He Tweeted: “I’m officially a UCLA Bruin, thank you too all the people who supported me and especially my family! All love. Long way to go though.”

Freeman, who transferred to Findlay from Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic for his senior season, was to have taken visits to Ohio State (Sept. 15), Villanova (Sept. 28) and Duke (Oct. 19) and Kansas but those won’t be necessary now.

“I think they’re just picking up where they left off with this past recruiting class,” Findlay Prep coach Michael Peck told SNY.tv by phone. “Al’s another tremendous player who is physically ready from a strength standpoint.

“You look at his body, he’s got good guard skills, he can handle it. He’s made an effort this spring and summer to try to be somewhat more of a point guard to distribute.

“On top of that he’s a tremendous scorer. He’s got a great mid-range and great long-range game. Once he works on on finishing at the rim, he’ll be a tremendous triple-threat.

The rich get richer. Seems like UCLA is building something similar to what USC built on the football side of things. Just raising the expectations and immense pressure. Howland, your ass is on the line.
