Report: UCLA freshman Tony Parker cleared by NCAA

A source tells Peter Yoon of ESPNLosAngeles.com that freshman center Tony Parker has been cleared by the NCAA to play this season, leaving two other recruits -- wing Shabazz Muhammad and point forward Kyle Anderson -- awaiting clarification of their statuses.

Muhammad was held out of the Bruins' preseason trip to China last month while the NCAA investigated whether he received improper benefits, and on Sunday came a report that both Anderson and Parker were also under scrutiny.

Earlier on Monday, UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero released a statement that read, in part, "Currently, there are two men's basketball student-athletes who have not yet received final amateurism certification from the NCAA."
