Shabazz Muhammad’s family releases a statement
On Friday, the NCAA announced that star UCLA recruit Shabazz Muhammad was ineligible to play, but they didn’t really elaborate beyond that.
How long is he out? Can he ever play in college? When will an official announcement be made? No one knows.
What we do know, however is how the Muhammad family feels about it. They released a statement to the LA Times this afternoon saying, more or less, we didn’t do anything wrong, and what we did do wrong, the NCAA had already ok’d.
The full statement can be read here, but I’ll pull the important quote:
I almost feel bad for Shabazz at this point. He did what he did, but the NCAA owes him an answer. The season has started. UCLA has already played a game. The NCAA needs to tell him what his punishment will be.
Enough with the nonsense already. If anyone in any other profession hit deadlines at the same rate as the NCAA, they wouldn’t be working in that profession anymore.
