One year after inking one of the best -- if not the best -- recruiting classes in the nation, UCLA coach Ben Howland is at it again.
The Bruins added their second commit in the class of 2013 on Thursday when 6'6 small forward Noah Allen faxed in his national letter-of-intent to play for UCLA next year, according to a report from ESPN.
Allen, a senior at Palma High in Salinas, Calif., joins 6'2 shooting guard Zach Lavin in the Bruins' class of 2013. Allerik Freeman, a 6'4 shooting guard from Findlay Prep, has verbally committed to the Bruins but not yet faxed in his letter-of-intent.
Allen picked UCLA over offers from Colorado, Northwestern, San Diego State and UC Davis, among others.
The early signing period for basketball ends Nov. 21, and the spring signing period runs from April 17 to May 15. Other players UCLA is involved with include shooting guard Isaac Hamilton and power forward Gavin Schilling.
