Bruin Freshmen Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker Join Shabazz Muhammad Under NCAA Scrutiny

The recruitment of UCLA Bruins center Tony Parker and forward Kyle Anderson are under investigation by the NCAA, adding to the NCAA scrutiny the Bruins are facing because of Shabazz Muhammad's involvement with financial advisors, Scout.com reported and CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman confirmed Sunday.

Muhammad had been the center of eligibility concerns during his initial recruitment period because of his involvement with Benjamin Lincoln and Ken Kavanagh, financial advisors with connections around the basketball world.

The recruitment of Parker and Anderson now falls under the microscope of the NCAA, which will look into the eligibility of both players. Muhammad had already been ruled ineligible for UCLA's trip to China during the summer.

The relationship Muhammad had with the financial advisors was being questioned because of believed payments made to allow Muhammad for unofficial visits and money allegedly funneled to Muhammad's summer league teams.

The three recruits made up a class that was ranked among the nation's best in 2012.
