LOS ANGELES--UCLA's basketball team received signed letters of intent from shooting guards David Singleton and Jules Bernard, and center David Nwuba on Wednesday, the first day of the early-signing period.

Singleton, who is 6 feet 4, is from Torrance Bishop Montgomery High; Bernard, 6-6, plays for Los Angeles Windward; Nwuba, 6-10, is from Huntington (W.Va.) Prep.

Josh Gershon, the national recruiting analyst for, described Singleton as a skilled scorer, whereas Bernard is more of a slasher and rebounder with potential to become an elite defender.

"I think they really complement each other well," Gershon said. "They both have All-Pac-12-type upside."

Nwuba is considered a top defender who can play center and power forward, though his offensive game is still evolving.
