Former North Carolina reserves David and Travis Wear have signed scholarship agreements with UCLA and plan to enroll in the first session of summer school, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported Tuesday.
They will sit out next season per NCAA transfer rules and play for the Bruins in 2011-12.
Both have three years of eligibility remaining.
David Wear averaged 10.5 minutes per game this season at North Carolina while Travis Wear averaged 10.3. Both were McDonald's All-Americans coming out of high school, and they spent a summer playing for a travel team that featured former UCLA standout Jrue Holiday and current Bruins Reeves Nelson and Jerime Anderson.

Former McDonald's All-Americans David and Travis Wear are transferring from North Carolina and hoping to get their releases "as early as Thursday," the players' father, Dave Wear, told Frank Burlison of the Long Bech Press-Telegram.
"When they return home (to Huntington Beach, Calif.), we will sit down as a family and review their basketball and academic options," said Dave Wear. "... They decided they didn't want to return to North Carolina."
David Wear averaged 10.5 minutes per game this season while Travis Wear averaged 10.3.
The departures leave UNC with just two experienced players who are taller than 6-feet-4 (Tyler Zeller and Jon Henson) on next season's roster. The Tar Heels' three-player recruiting class does not include any power forwards or centers.
