Mack, a 6-foot-3 combo guard from Nevada, has signed with the Bruins for the 2023-24 season

The UCLA men’s basketball program has received a signed National Letter of Intent (NLI) from high school senior Sebastian Mack, as announced on Wednesday by Mick Cronin, The Michael Price Family UCLA Men’s Head Basketball Coach.

Mack, a 6-foot-3 combo guard from Las Vegas, Nev., becomes the third high school player during the early signing period to sign with the Bruins, joining 6-foot-8 guard/forward Brandon Williams from New York and 6-foot-10 forward/center Devin Williams (no relation) from Lake Elsinore, Calif.

“Sebastian is an explosive athlete and has developed into an elite scorer,” Cronin said. “He’s a great competitor who also brings toughness and defense to the gym. Sebastian has a great basketball pedigree and really loves the game. His shooting ability is definitely something that we need to add, seeing as Tyger Campbell and David Singleton are currently seniors. One thing I love about Sebastian is when he committed, I told him that I was excited and that we needed his shooting. His response was, ‘I’m coming to play defense and win, Coach.’ I expect he’ll have a great senior season at Coronado high school. We cannot wait to get him to Westwood.”

Currently a senior at Coronado high school (Henderson, Nev.), Mack has been ranked as high as No. 36 in the nation, in his high school class, by Rivals.com. In addition, he has been ranked as the No. 7 shooting guard in the country, according to Rivals.com.

Mack helped Durango high school to a 20-6 record and 9-1 league mark during his junior year (2021-22). His high school team advanced to the semifinals of the 2022 NIAA 5A Southern playoffs in Nevada.

Mack, along with Brandon Williams and Devin Williams, will enroll as freshmen at UCLA for the 2023-24 academic yea
