J'Mison Morgan is officially a Bruin

# Top 100 center J'Mison Morgan of Dallas-South Oak Cliff, Tex., ranked No. 39 overall in Class 2008, has officially signed with the UCLA Bruins, head coach Ben Howland announced. The 6-10 prospect had been granted a requested release from his signed letter to LSU due to a coaching change.

UCLA has the top 2008 recruiting class in the nation. "I am very, very excited that J'Mison is going to be attending UCLA and be a part of our program," said Howland. "He is a true center with excellent hands and outstanding overall skills. He is a fine passer, shot blocker and rebounder. J'Mison completes a five-player 2008 class that we believe gives us a great foundation for the future."
