UCLA challenges reports

NCAA basketball: UCLA says two of its freshmen basketball recruits have not yet received final amateurism certification from the NCAA and is disputing what it calls “misleading and inaccurate public reports” regarding its incoming class.

A report says freshmen Kyle Anderson and Tony Parker are being investigated by the NCAA for potential basketball recruiting violations.

“Recently, there have been misleading and inaccurate public reports regarding the initial-eligibility certification of our men’s basketball team’s incoming class,” athletic director Dan Guerrero said.

“Currently, there are two men’s basketball student-athletes who have not yet received final amateurism certification from the NCAA. UCLA will not, and cannot, endanger the privacy of our student-athletes or the confidentiality of the process by providing a more specific response at this time to these reports,” he said.
