The younger Ball, who is 6-feet-4, was rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com. He is the first member of UCLA’s 2017 recruiting class.
Both Ball brothers play for Chino Hills. A third brother, LaMelo, will join them there next season.

“Everybody in his family says he’s going to be better than Lonzo and LiAngelo,” Baik said.
