The NCAA is investigating potential recruiting violations involving Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker, according to a report.

Anderson, a 6-foot-8 forward, was considerred a top-5 prospect in 2012; Parker was top-30.

According to the report, another college basketball program "turned in" evidence of violations in the recruitments of Anderson and Parker.

Shabazz Muhammad was ruled ineligible to participate in the Bruins' tour of China in late August because of a separate ongoing investigation.

Can anyone more familiar with NCAA basketball fill me in on what this means? Is it possible that the entire recruiting class (Shabazz, Anderson, AND Parker) won't be able to play if they find out that the recruitment was dirty?

I'm a UCLA student and I was just about to order season tickets since I was so excited we're actually legit again. I don't wanna buy the tickets now only to find out that our best player is going to end up being Josh Smith because of recruiting violations...

if they find them guilty, it'll depend on what they found and what they punish them with. UCLA likely won't be effected long term because those players have yet to play on the floor for them so UCLA won't be punished for playing ineligible players, they will only punish them for the recruiting violations

if they are serious allegations that whole great recruiting class could go down to hell

It's sad that Kentucky wasn't busted for it last season, but regardless, I hope they slam UCLA for it. Even if Kansas did it this season (after losing Robinson and Taylor), I'd hope that someone would stomp their throats.

Now, I don't like the rule, really...because I think schools make a little too much money off of those kids...but it's enforced, nonetheless, so any chance the NCAA gets to dropkick a school for doing it, they should.
