UCLA Freshman Muhammad Will Miss Trip To China

LOS ANGELES (CBS) UCLA’s top recruit Shabbazz Muhammad will not travel to China for the Bruins’ three exhibition games they’ll play at the end of the August.

The NCAA is still investigating possible ‘improper benefits’ provided to the McDonald’s All-American by family friends, according to LA Times.

“We showed the NCAA that we have done everything correctly,” Muhammad told the time. “I haven’t broken any rules. I expect to play in the first game, when we open against Indiana State.”

UCLA will take precautionary measures by keeping him in Los Angeles, but the 6-foot-6 guard from Las Vegas should be ready to play for the start of the season.
