Howland: Honeycutt expected back Dec. 12

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- UCLA coach Ben Howland said Sunday he doubts Tyler Honeycutt will debut next Sunday against No. 1 Kansas. More likely, Howland said, the prized freshman -- who has been sidelined with a stress reaction in his right tibia -- will play as a Bruin for the first time Dec. 12 against Mississippi State.

Scout.com ranked Honeycutt No. 21 in the Class of 2009.

Long Beach State beat UCLA 79-68 in Sunday's seventh-place game of the 76 Classic here at the Anaheim Convention Center. The Bruins are 2-4 with losses to Cal State-Fullerton, Portland, Butler and Long Beach State. Fullerton and Long Beach State entered this season 0-20 all-time against UCLA. Now, obviously, that record is 2-20.

Honeycutt commits to UCLA

UCLA landed a huge commitment Wednesday when Tyler Honeycutt announced he'll play for the Bruins.

Scout.com ranked the 6-foot-8 forward as the 21st-best prospect in the Class of 2009 after his stock soared this summer while playing for Dana and David Pump's Pump 'N Run Elite team that was based out of Los Angles and coached by former Arizona great Miles Simon. He chose UCLA over offers from Memphis, Texas and Southern California. Honeycutt's commitment means the Bruins now have three recruits expected to sign in November. The other two are Brendan Lane (ranked 83rd in the Class of 2009) and Reeves Nelson (ranked 89th in the Class of 2009). All three are instate products.

For those keeping count, exactly half of Scout.com's Top 30 prospects in the Class of 2009 are now committed.

The top two prospects -- Derrick Favors and John Wall -- remain uncommitted.

USC set for huge hoops recruiting weekend

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 --

  • Renardo Sidney (ranked fifth by Scout.com)
  • Kenny Boynton (ranked eighth by Scout.com)
  • Jordan Hamilton (ranked 13th by Scout.com)
  • Tyler Honeycutt (ranked 21st by Scout.com)
  • Noel Johnson (ranked 58th by Scout.com)
  • Terrence Boyd (ranked 82nd by Scout.com)
  • Shaunessy Smith
  • Derrick Williams

-- 2010 --

  • Josh Smith (ranked fourth by Scout.com)
  • Jeremy Tyler (ranked seventh by Scout.com)
  • Anthony Brown (ranked 51st by Scout.com)
  • Gary Franklin

-- 2011 --

  • Kyle Caudill

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?
