Freshman sensation Lonzo Ball wasted no time taking college hoops by storm ... and now former UCLA star Baron Davis is showing a LOT of love for the young hooper ... proclaiming Ball a future NBA All-Star.
TMZ Sports spoke with B.D. about the freshman phenom -- who leads the NCAA in assists (9 per game) as a freshman -- and it's clear Baron expects nothing but greatness.
"He will definitely be a UCLA Hall of Famer," Davis says. "He's following right after Russ (Westbrook) and all the rest of the great point guards."
Dominating ain't new for Ball. He's been hyped up since his high school days, taking his Chino Hills H.S. team to a perfect 35-0 record and a state title.
