Report: UCLA guard Kyle Anderson declared eligible by NCAA

Wednesday October 31st, 2012

UCLA freshman guard Kyle Anderson has been declared eligible to play by the NCAA, family members told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday morning.

Anderson was being investigated for a relationship between his father, Kyle Sr., and NBA agent Thad Foucher, according to people with knowledge of the situation who are not authorized to speak publicly.

Anderson, a 6-foot-8 guard who was ranked among the top high school players, is one of UCLA’s blue-chip freshman basketball players. He's expect to contend for a starting position this season.

UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad is also being investigated by the NCAA for potential basketball recruiting violations. Muhammad had not been cleared to play and is nursing a shoulder injury suffered in practice last week.
