Moses Brown
Tyger Campbell

Bruins will welcome Moses Brown, Tyger Campbell to Westwood in 2018-19.
LOS ANGELES – The UCLA men's basketball program has received signed National Letters of Intent from high school seniors Moses Brown and Tyger Campbell on the first day of the regular signing period, as announced Wednesday by Steve Alford, The Michael Price Family UCLA Men's Head Basketball Coach.

Brown and Campbell will enroll at UCLA in 2018 and begin their freshman seasons in Westwood during the 2018-19 academic year. Brown and Campbell join a trio of high school seniors – Jules Bernard, Kenneth Nwuba and David Singleton – who signed with the Bruins in the fall of 2017. All five will be freshmen at UCLA next season.

Brown, a 7-foot-2 and 240-pound center, excelled at Archbishop Molloy High School in New York (Queens) and has been rated as high as the No. 18 player in his high school class by Most recently, he scored 11 points and had five rebounds and two blocks in 13 minutes off the bench in the annual McDonald's All-American Game in Atlanta on March 28.

"Moses is an incredibly talented player who carries a great demeanor," Alford said. "He's a humble, hard-working young man who wants to get better, and he comes to us from a tradition-rich program at Archbishop Molloy High School. We believe he has a tremendous future. You just don't see young guys very often with the size, length and ability that Moses has. We're looking forward to watching him develop in our program, and we're confident that he will be a difference maker right away."

Campbell, a 5-foot-11 and 170-pound guard, helped lead La Lumiere School (La Porte, Ind.) to a 23-4 record last season, as his high school team ended the year ranked No. 6 in USA Today's national top-25 rankings. Originally hailing from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Campbell has been rated as high as the No. 72 player in his high school class by

"Tyger has really impressed us, both with his ability to see the court and as a playmaker," Alford said. "We like him because he's a winner and brings an unselfish attitude, and we think he will really add to our team's backcourt. Tyger really understands how to run a team, and he plays the game the right way. We are looking forward to having him join our team this summer."
