Elaine Youngs, an outstanding volleyball and basketball player at El Toro High School, has orally committed to play both sports at UCLA, according to Carolyn Youngs, her mother.
Youngs, a 6-foot senior, has been named all-Southern Section in each sport. Technically, she will attend UCLA on a volleyball scholarship.
Her freshman year, she will play volleyball and redshirt in basketball.
"That was to give her a little breathing room," Carolyn Youngs said. "That's a pretty demanding schedule to take on right away."
Youngs will formally sign a letter of intent in February. She had also been recruited, for both sports, by USC, Cal State Long Beach and the University of Oregon.
