Five-star recruit Shabazz Muhammad is ineligible for UCLA’s summer tour of China, according to a report by Adam Zagoria of zagsblog.com.
A 6-6, 215-pound small forward, Muhammad is being investigated by the NCAA for possibly receiving improper benefits during his recruitment.
The investigation is focusing on whether Muhammad received help with financing his recruiting visits.
The Bruins will leave for China on Aug. 22 without their most highly-regarded incoming freshman. UCLA will play two games in Beijing and one in Shanghai.
Muhammad has been battling an ankle sprain suffered last month, but should be healthy for the regular season. His eligibility is the bigger question.
Muhammad’s father, Ron Holmes, acknowledged to CBSSports.com in February a connection to two financial advisers that could compromise his son’s eligibility.
Muhammad, ranked the No. 1 recruit in the 2012 class by Rivals.com, chose UCLA over Kentucky and Duke.
“I think he can be a really outstanding player,” UCLA coach Ben Howland told SNY.tv last month. “The one thing I noticed our first practice is he’s a great offensive rebounder.
“I mean, he’s going to be a load and we’ve got to utilize him in a lot of different ways because he can post, he can shoot it, he can put it on the floor, he goes and gets it.”
Scout.com was first to report on Muhammad’s ineligibility.
