Ashley Hearn, right, is the most recent reason the future looks bright at UCLA.

UCLA is keeping the ball rolling.

The Bruins, who signed the No. 1 recruiting class in 2014, got a verbal commitment from 2015 star Ashley Hearn on Friday.

Hearn, a 6-foot-3 center from Sachse, Texas, is the No. 13 prospect in the espnW HoopGurlz Super 60. She joins Kennedy Burke, the No. 29 prospect from Sierra Canyon, California, in Cori Close's 2015 class.

The UCLA-bound stars will spend time together next week at the USA Basketball U-17 team trials in Colorado Springs.

Hearn, an agile inside player with an explosive game, chose UCLA over Penn State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, LSU, Colorado, Louisville, Tennessee and California.

UCLA's top-ranked 2014 class features Jordin Canada, Lajahna Drummer, Recee' Caldwell, Kelli Hayes and Monique Billings.
