Danville, California’s Abriana Howard has made a verbal commitment to the UCLA Bruins for the 2018-19 season.
“I chose UCLA because the team and coaches were extremely welcoming, supportive and made me feel at home. It is the perfect balance between athletics and academics allowing me to be the best I can be. I can’t wait to join the Bruin family! Go Bruins!!!”
Howard is a rising senior at Monte Vista High School in Danville, the 2017 CIF-North Coast Section girls’ champions.
