UCLA’s eligibility issues just got a lot more complicated. Shabazz Muhammad was already ruled ineligible to participate in the Bruins’ tour of China in late August because of an ongoing investigation, and now, reports have surfaced that the NCAA is probing the recruitments of fellow Bruins Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker. The kicker in the story: according to reports, another college basketball program “turned in” evidence of the violations. Via Scout.com: “BruinReportOnline.com has now learned that there is an NCAA investigation that includes allegations of violations involving Anderson and Parker. It is not clear, at this time, if there are any additional details of the new allegations, or whether they’re related to the existing investigation into Muhammad. Sources close to the situation have indicated another college basketball program turned in evidence of violations in the recruitments of Muhammad, Anderson and Parker. BruinReportOnline.com is unaware if UCLA is specifically named in the alleged violations. Muhammad was deemed ineligible to participate in UCLA’s recent exhibition games in China because of the NCAA investigation into his relationship with the AAU booster and the improper acceptance of flights was on-going. Despite the new allegations, Anderson, the 6-foot-8 forward from Jersey City (N.J.) St. Anthony, and Parker, the 6-foot-8 center from Lithonia (Ga.) Miller Grove, were allowed to go to China. Parker didn’t participate because of an injury.”
