UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad will make his debut tonight in the Legends Classic against the Georgetown Hoyas at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He was ranked the No. 2-ranked prospect in the class of 2012. The NCAA denied him eligibility for the Bruins’ first three games. However, the NCAA reinstates the promising freshman on Friday after hearing an appeal from the Bruins.
Shabazz Muhammad reinstated by NCAA. Missed three games, must reimburse $1,600. Can play in Brooklyn this week.
