UCLA announces two men’s basketball signings
Kevon Looney and Gyorgy Goloman have signed letters of intent to play basketball next season for Steve Alford and UCLA, it was announced Thursday.
Looney, a 6-foot-9, 200-pound forward is ranked No. 11 in the country, according to ESPN.com’s rankings, and averaged 26.1 points, 12.4 rebounds and 7.0 blocks per game as a junior at Hamilton High School in Milwaukee.
Goloman, 6-10 and 210 pounds, entered his first year at the Sagemont School in Westmont, Fla., this fall after moving to the United States from Hungary. He averaged 15.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per game while competing for Hungary at the 2013 European U18 Championships.
“Kevon is one of the best players in the country in this class,” Alford said. “He is extremely skilled and versatile. Most importantly, he’s a winner. With Gyorgy, we love his ability to run the floor. He is one of the best passing big men we have seen in years. This is a tremendous start to the 2014 class, and we are excited to add these two great individuals to the Bruin family.”
