Members of Kyle Anderson's family have been informed that the UCLA freshman point guard has been declared eligible to play by the NCAA, the Los Angeles Times learned Wednesday morning. Anderson's UCLA teammate Jordan Adams confirmed the news soon afterward, tweeting "They finally FREE'D my bro @KyleAnderson5 from the NCAA ayyy lol" On Twitter, Anderson re-tweeted a report that cited this story by The Times, and he replied to others, congratulating him for being cleared by the NCAA. Anderson was being investigated for a relationship between his father, Kyle Sr., and NBA agent Thad Foucher, according to people with knowledge of the situation who are not authorized to speak publicly. Anderson, a 6-foot-8 guard who was ranked among the top high school players, is one of UCLAs blue-chip freshman basketball players. He's expect to contend for a starting position this season. One of UCLA's other star freshmen, Shabazz Muhammad, is still under NCAA investigation. "Haha hopefully I'm next so we can get this season going !!!!" Muhammad tweeted this morning. The NCAA has reportedly been investigating the Muhammad family's financial dealings with Benjamin Lincoln and Ken Kavanagh to determine whether there were any violations. Lincoln paid for two unofficial visits to college campuses. Kavanagh helped finance Muhammads summer traveling team. NCAA investigators have yet to interview Muhammad's father, Ron Holmes, people close to the situation said. -Baxter Holmes and David Wharton
