UCLA's No. 1 Recruiting Class Off To A Rocky Start

UCLA's highly regarded 2012 men's basketball recruiting class has gotten off to a rocky start.


UCLA's 2012 men's basketball recruiting class was widely regarded as the No. 1 recruiting class in the country, but with the players now on campus, things haven't gotten off to a very smooth start.

Of the four member 2012 class, only Jordan Adams hasn't encountered some kind of issue early in their UCLA careers. Shabazz Muhammad, a 5-star recruit who many considered to be the top overall recruit in 2012, won't be joining the team for its trip to China as he is currently being investigated for improper benefits.

Tony Parker, another 5-star recruit in the class, will also miss the trip to China after he injured his hamstring in practice. The 6-foot-9 center was injured during practice in early august and could miss up to a month.

The third 5-star recruit in the class, Kyle Anderson, has also missed practice with a pre-existing hand injury. The incoming recruiting class has encountered so many problems, they have yet to practice together.

The 2012 recruiting class was supposed to be the one to return UCLA to national prominence, but if they are going to do so, they will need to get eligible and healthy soon.
