The Hoosiers missed out on a five-star recruit in Wilkes and it’s especially hard to bear considering he’s so close to home. That commitment gives UCLA the best recruiting class in 2017 though with three four-star commits and Wilkes who is a five-star. The Bruins also have LiAngelo Ball who is the brother of current freshman Lonzo Ball.
