UCLA women's basketball Coach Cori Close announced today the signing of five highly rated high school standouts to national letters of intent. The class has been rated No. 1 in the country by most recruiting services, including ESPN’s HoopGurlz, Blue Star Basketball and Prospects Nation.

The class includes five players ranked in the top 40 in the country, including three in the top 10.

The group consists of Jordin Canada (Los Angeles/Windward High), Recee' Caldwell (San Antonio, Texas/FEAST), Lajahna Drummer (Inglewood/Long Beach Poly), Kelli Hayes (San Jose/Archbishop Mitty High) and Monique Billings (Corona/Santiago High).

The five newcomers complete the Bruins' early-signing class and will enter UCLA in fall 2014 as freshmen and will become members of the 2014-15 women's basketball team.

"I'm just so excited for how this puzzle of five incredibly gifted young ladies on and off the court fit together to help continue to grow our program here at UCLA," Close said.
