    if they don't lose all 3 underclassmen currently testing the waters, and they figure out how to get from 15 scholarship players to 13, they could be a top 10 team, or better next year. Really wanted Brown at UCLA.

    Also USC's hiring of the father of the Mobley brothers paid off as they just got a commit from Onyeka Okongwu, Compton Magic kid played for Chino Hills both with the Balls and after. Athletic shot blocker, like Jelani McCoy another kid I really wanted at UCLA. They are apparently in the running for Cassius Stanley and Josh Green too, neither of whom to my knowledge have ties to the Mobley they hired.

    I guess Enfield being connected to the FBI story concerned him enough he just decided screw it, I'm hiring a dad to get 2 sons and a good friend of theirs, paid off.

    Horrible week for UCLA basketball. Over the weekend Tyler Honeycutt committed suicide after barricading himself in a house, today it's being reported Billy Knight(played for Lavin) committed suicide.

    Wow - that sucks. I had heard the story about Honeycutt, but not the other.

    We've lost 3 lately. Former Bruin Mike Lanier died recently too, he was a 7 foot 4 twin, only one of them went to UCLA. Think he had a heart attack.

    Knight actually left a last message to the world video on Youtube. I watched the first 10 seconds but was too morbid. He apparently was warning people to get help if they needed to.

    Even worse now apparently he was charged with sexual molestation in June in Maricopa County. One story said the victim was 11, another said 14.

    That would certainly explain him being despondent enough to kill himself.

    Apparently 6 counts of molestation. Hard to be sure but sounds like the victim was the child of a woman he was either dating or friends with.

    I don't wish suicide on anybody but makes a lot more sense as to why he did it, he was facing 50 years in prison.
