With the addition of Lajahna Drummer, the 2014 UCLA recruiting class will be tough to beat.

Chalk up another victory for UCLA in the recruiting season.

Coach Cori Close and the Bruins have received verbal commitments from Lajahna Drummer, the No. 5 prospect in the 2014 class, and Monique Billings, the No. 15 prospect.

Drummer, a 6-foot-2 forward at Long Beach Poly (Calif.), and Billings, a 6-1 forward at Santiago (Corona, Calif.), join a UCLA class that already was loaded with talent. In all, the Bruins now have four five-star recruits headed their way in the 2014 class.

Jordin Canada, a 5-6 point guard and the No. 2 prospect in the class, and Reece' Caldwell, a 5-8 point guard and the No. 6 prospect, had previously announced their intentions to play at UCLA.

The Bruins also have a verbal from Kelli Hayes, a three-star 6-foot forward from Archbishop Mitty (San Jose, Calif.).

Drummer's decision leaves only two undeclared prospects among the espnW HoopGurlz top 10: No. 1 A'ja Wilson and No. 9 Gabby Green.
