Leaf averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game, proving he was an asset to the team.
“I’m sad that both of our 5 star freshmen are going into the draft because it’s more than likely that they’re leaving behind the team dynamic,” said fellow freshman Jessica Sanchez.
Though students expressed sorrow for Leaf’s departure, the Bruins thank Leaf for his contribution to UCLA’s successful 2016-2017 season and wish him luck in his future career.
