Indiana Prep Star Commits to UCLA for 2010
By Bruin Basketball Report
Bloomington South high school prep star Matt Carlino has committed to UCLA for the 2010 class, his father, Mark Carlino told The Indy Star today.
The 6'3 guard did well enough on his prep tests to graduate a year early and attend UCLA this upcoming fall.
He plays both the point and shooting guard positions. The lefty combo guard is solid at both positions and possesses a high basketball IQ.
“We’re glad that he feels good about it,” Mark Carlino said, “I think it probably helps that he’ll be close to his family in Phoenix. Everything has been a positive for us in Indiana, though. I know I’ll certainly miss it.”
Carlino had previously committed to Indiana before deciding to de-commit late last year.
He had visited UCLA last weekend, as well as a host of other Division I schools before choosing to play in Westwood next season.
