UPDATE

Adem Bona will announce his college decision Monday morning at 10:30 am ET.

As of Saturday afternoon, the UCLA Bruins hold every prediction at Rivals and 80% of the picks at 247 Sports.


For a while, the Kentucky Wildcats emerged as heavy favorites for 5-star center Adem Bona before the UCLA Bruins stormed into the lead.

Now, Bona will announce his college decision on Monday, November 1st, according to Joe Tipton.

The last few weeks have seen the Bruins take over as the front-runners over the Wildcats for Bona’s services. 80% of the 247 Sports crystal ball projections now favor the Bruins and The Athletic’s Kyle Tucker, who covers UK, also hinted at UCLA likely winning the bid for Bona.

Bona is ranked as the 10th-best player in the nation for 2022 by 247 Sports, where he’s also the nation’s third-best center and the second-best player from California, only behind UCLA commit Amari Bailey.

Bona’s initial final eight includes favorites UCLA and Kentucky as well as Arizona State, Baylor, Kansas, the NBL, Miami and USC. However, he’s since cut it down to just Kentucky and UCLA.
