The Sporting News has just published a story that features comments by Shabazz Muhammad -- who is the top rated 2012 prospect across the board -- regarding where he would like to play college basketball. Muhammad is quoted as saying, "Yeah, I think (UCLA) is an option. We've (him and Kyle Anderson) been really talking about that. Pretty much he's like my best friend now, so I'm always hanging around with him. We're just talking about UCLA, what other schools he likes, what other schools I like."
Shabazz Muhammad's current list of schools are: Arizona Wildcats, Duke Blue Devils, Kansas Jayhawks, Kentucky Wildcats, Memphis Grizzles, UCLA Bruins and UNLV Rebels.
Kyle Anderson's list of schools are: Saint John Red Storm, Seton Hall Pirates, Florida Gators, Georgetown Hoyas and UCLA Bruins.
Nothing is final until it is final, but this can not be chalked up to anything other than not-so-positive news for the Rebels...
