UCLA Basketball: Cori Close lands Canadian 4-star forward Brynn Masikewich

by Mike Regalado Dec 2018

The UCLA basketball women’s team received a commitment from Canadian U17 national player Brynn Masikewich for the 2019 recruiting class.

The 2019 recruiting class is looking very good for UCLA basketball head coach Cori Close as she added her third commitment on Wednesday. The Bruins received their first frontcourt pledge as Calgary, Alberta native Brynn Masikewich is on her way to Westwood.

Close has been doing a bang up job on the recruiting trail as the 2019 class looks to be one of the best in her tenure.

UCLA has already received commitments from two 5-star point guards who are among the 25 best according to Prospects Nation as Texan Jaden Owens and local California prospect Charisma Osborne will be in blue and gold the season after next. The Bruins bring in two talented backcourt players, but now add some height to their arsenal.

So who is Masikewich?

The 6-3 forward is one hell of a low post threat that can play on both ends of the court. Last season she helped her school, Lincoln Prep, win the Ontario Scholastic Basketball Association championship but was also one of the featured players on the Canadian National U17 team.
