UCLA will appeal the NCAA's suspension of star freshman recruit Shabazz Muhammad, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

Muhammad was declared ineligible by the NCAA just before UCLA's season opener against Indiana State on Friday. The NCAA alleges that Muhammad received improper benefits in his recruitment, and did so in such a way that violated the NCAA's amateurism rules. According to the report, Muhammad accepted travel and lodging from a financial adviser during recruiting trips to Duke and North Carolina.

A ruling on the matter is expected to come on Friday.

Muhammad is considered to be the top freshman recruit in college basketball, but the start of his UCLA career has been put on hold thanks to multiple investigations into his eligibility.
