The plan was six years and three seasons of the Ball family and UCLA. It was going to be beneficial for both sides: UCLA got three talented players and the Ball family boosted its profile by sending three sons to one of college basketball’s most historic programs. But now, LaVar Ball has pulled his son LiAngelo out of UCLA, without notifying UCLA head coach Steve Alford or any of his assistant coaches. LaMelo Ball, who is the youngest of the three boys, is still committed to play at UCLA but sources are beginning to question if he’ll ever head to campus.
