The nation's top recruit may have to wait a while to play a game in college.

CBS Sports reports that UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad injured his right shoulder during practice on Wednesday. The extent of the injury is not immediately clear, but it was severe enough for Muhammad to undergo an MRI on the shoulder following the practice. The results of that MRI have not been determined yet.

Muhammad is widely considered to be the top freshman in the nation, in addition to being the projected top overal pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. However, between the injury and ongoing inquries into his eligibility, it may be a while before he can get in a game.
