May 14, 2013BruinSportsReport.com is excited to announce the addition of a new senior staff writer this week, Neal Nieves. He will join publisher Edward Lewis as a contributor to the site immediately.
Nieves has been a staple on the West Coast basketball recruiting scene for nearly the last decade, recognized as one of the top hoops scouts in the area as well as one of the most noteworthy recruiting reporters west of Texas. He will join BSR covering primarily UCLA basketball and its recruiting, but will also be prevalent in Bruin football coverage as well.
"I'm very excited to start this new opportunity," Nieves said. "I'm looking forward to adding as much to this site as I can and making this place one of the top destinations for UCLA news."
Nieves graduated from Bellflower High School in 2003 and earned his A.A. at Long Beach City College shortly after. He then studied communications at Long Beach State and quickly jumped into the recruiting game after that. Nieves has written for multiple blogs and websites, including Rivals.com and Scout.com, and will bring a unique set of sources as well as a vast knowledge of sports to BSR this year.
"I've covered recruiting for more than six years and can't wait to bring that experience to BruinSportsReport.com," Nieves said. "This is a very exciting opportunity and I'm looking forward to starting right away."
