NCAA investigating UCLA hoops recruits
Freshman Shabazz Muhammad has been the subject of an ongoing NCAA investigation involving alleged improper benefits he received in his recruitment from boosters of his AAU program. The forward from Las Vegas was one of the nation’s mostly highly sought-after recruits last spring when he chose UCLA over Kentucky and Duke.
The report posted Sunday on Scout.com’s website, which cites unspecified sources close to the situation, says the NCAA is looking into allegations of violations involving Anderson and Parker. It says sources have indicated another college basketball program turned in evidence of violations in the recruitments of Muhammad, Anderson and Parker. The report said it was unknown whether UCLA was specifically named in the alleged violations.
A UCLA spokesman did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment on the Labor Day holiday Monday.
