UCLA Is Trending For 4-Star SG M.J. Walker, Who Is Committing Tomorrow

UCLA basketball could be adding a much-needed piece to its 2017 recruiting class tomorrow.

Lithia Springs (Ga.) Jonesboro four-star shooting guard M.J. Walker will announce his long-awaited college commitment tomorrow. He will chose from Florida State, Georgia Tech, Ohio State, UCLA and Virginia Tech.

The No. 26 overall player in the 2017 class, Walker looked like a Virginia Tech lean for a while. However, he visited UCLA most recently and the Bruins are trending for his services.

The last five predictions in Walker's 247Sports Crystal Ball are all for UCLA, including one from Jerry Meyer, 247Sports' Director Basketball Scouting.

The Bruins are looking to replace a number of talented players, including point guard Lonzo Ball and shooting guards Bryce Alford and Isaac Hamilton. Another shooting guard, Aaron Holiday, could elect to stay in the NBA Draft.

Walker would join a UCLA recruiting class that already sits in the top-five nationally.
