Not sure where you're getting the confidence that KJ isn't going to ask for a release from his NLI. It's been the worst-kept secret the past week that he's seriously considering it and will likely ask for it within the next 48 hours. I think UCLA was his dream school, but it never offered, which is why he pulled the trigger on Arizona. He wanted to play for Miller. You may be right about scholarship numbers for UCLA, tbh, I'm not familiar with what your scholly situation looks like. Who knows, but I'm simply not counting on KJ being a Wildcat.
Although rumors are that we're gonna make TyTy Washington's Top-5 and make a serious run at him.
The Ty Ty stuff is on UCLA boards too but we're being told Kansas leads and that he's also considering pro options now.
We've been told Simpson wanted to go to UCLA but Cronin doesn't offer if he hasn't seen you in person, couldn't due to Covid, so he picked UA. now he wanted out, and wanted to go to UCLA. But it looks like IF UCLA gets Myles Johnson, there's no ride for him, and even if they don't get Johnson, if they get Dylan Andrews in the next class it's believed Simpson probably wouldn't take a UCLA offer because Simpson wants to play PG in college and if he picks UCLA he comes in behind Tyger for at least 1 year(he might not play his RS Senior year next year might be his last) and then he'd be competing with Andrews the following year who most believe is better than Simpson.
NOw maybe he has other schools too so if UCLA isn't going to happen he goes somewhere else but we've been told for a couple of months now he was probably going to decommit because he wants to come to UCLA and it looked like UCLA was going to take him if he did. That all changed with the FF run and the idea that it's entirely possible UCLA won't have rides.
If Juzang leaves then he has a ride but that won't be likely known until June and nobody thinks Simpson will wait that long.
If UA thinks they can get Ty Ty then yeah Simpson might still leave. Otherwise if I'm him and I think it's possible both Akinjo and Kriiza leave, or likely one of them does, I'd probably consider staying with UA so I get to play more. But who knows you might be about to load up on transfers with a new coach both kids leaving and coming in where Simpson will be recruited over.
