Nikki Caldwell lands touted signing class

UCLA women's basketball coach Nikki Caldwell is having success off the court, too.

Caldwell, who has led the No. 16 Bruins to their highest ranking in four years, announced the signing of four highly touted players last week. ESPNU Hoopgurlz ranks it as the No. 4 recruiting class nationally.

The group, with overall ranking:

Justine Hartman (Brea, Calif./Brea-Olinda) - No. 7 overall

Kacy Swain (Temecula, Calif./St. Bernard) - No. 25 overall

Sheila Boykin (Long Beach, Calif./Long Beach Poly) - No. 27 overall

Moriah Faulk (Santa Monica, Calif./Santa Monica) - unranked

Said Caldwell: "These four young ladies are not only great basketball players, but exceptional young people. We look forward to them joining the Bruin family and contributing to the success of our program."
