UTEP signee Isaac Hamilton admitted to UCLA
UTEP signee Isaac Hamilton has been admitted to UCLA and will eventually become a part of Steve Alford's basketball program, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Friday.
Hamilton was a McDonald's All-American during his senior year of high school.
He's ranked 16th nationally in the Class of 2013 by 247Sports.com.
This development was first reported by BruinSportsReport.
Hamilton signed a national letter of intent with UTEP last November but decided over the summer that he'd rather play basketball closer to his home in California because, he said, he wanted to be near his ailing grandmother. But UTEP coach Tim Floyd refused to release Hamilton from the letter of intent, and a waiver to be released from the letter of intent was denied last week. Consequently, Hamilton will not be eligible to play at UCLA this season. His college career will begin in 2014-15.
