Pac-12 newcomers at McDonald’s game

UCLA received some good news when Shabazz Muhammad, one of the top high school senior prospects, included the Bruins among his top three choices. The others include: Kentucky and Duke.
Muhammad made the announcement before the McDonald’s All-American game Wednesday night.
Some notes and thoughts from the game:
Anthony Bennett will appear on ESPN’s Signing Day show on April 11. Not sure if he’ll make his college decision that day. He’s considering Washington, Oregon, Kentucky, Florida and UNLV. ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep said the Pac-12 teams aren’t likely to make Bennett’s top three schools.
— Bennett played well in the McDonald’s game. He missed most of the season with a hamstring injury, but looks like he’s fully recovered. When he wants to rebound, he’s difficult to stop. Bennett also likes to shoot threes, but I don’t think he made one tonight. He’s rated the No. 1 power forward by ESPN.
— UCLA signee Kyle Anderson is long and smooth. He’s a terrific ball-handler with good vision and fantastic passing skills. He moves at a deliberate pace and opponents speed him up. If Bruins coach Ben Howland let’s him play, Anderson could get a few triple doubles.
— Arizona-bound big man Grant Jerrett made a few plays, but nothing spectacular. He looks thin in his shoulders, but has a solid base.
— Barely noticed Brandon Ashley, the 6-8 forward who is going to Arizona.
