Josh Smith committed to UCLA late Monday, Scout.com's Dave Telep is reporting.
Scout.com ranks Smith No. 13 nationally in the Class of 2010.
The 6-9 center chose the Bruins over in-state Washington.
"This was my choice, and it’s where I wanted to go," Smith told Scout.com. "I gave the other schools a chance just to see; I wanted to look at every aspect of staying home. But after going over every factor, I knew it was UCLA.
Smith is the second Class of 2010 prospect to commit to Ben Howland's Bruins. The other is Tyler Lamb. He's a guard from California ranked 60th by Scout.com.
National Signing Day is Wednesday.

It's a big football weekend at Southern California.
Perhaps you've heard.
But it's worth noting that Tim Floyd, Bob Cantu and the rest of the USC basketball staff will also have a lot at stake over the next 48 hours as the Trojans host what could be the best group of recruits to visit a campus at one time in the history of the sport. There is no way to prove that statement, of course. But if you know of a school that has ever produced a more significant list of visitors feel free to shoot me a note and let me know
Anyway here's a list of basketball prospects expected to be at USC-Ohio State game.
(Class ranking, if available, in parenthesis)
-- 2009 --
-- 2010 --
-- 2011 --
Add it up, and that's nine prospects ranked in the Top 85 of their respective classes -- including five Top 15 guys -- expected to be on campus in either an official or unoffical capacity -- plus Caudill, who is considered one of the better sophomores in the nation (it's just that Scout.com and Rivals.com only rank sophomores through the Top 10, and he's not in that group). So, like I said, this is a huge weekend for USC basketball. And with that, let's get back to the Beanie Wells Watch, can we?
