NCAA clears Kyle Anderson to play

Kyle Anderson, one of the two gems in UCLA’s freshman class, has been cleared to play by the NCAA. He had been under investigation for a relationship between his father and NBA agent Thad Foucher.

From teammate and fellow freshman Jordan Adams:

Statement from athletic director Dan Guerrero: “UCLA was informed by the NCAA earlier today that freshman guard Kyle Anderson is eligible to play this season, and that the NCAA has found no evidence to substantiate claims of violations in his case. I am grateful to all those who were involved in the process. We are looking forward to opening our season on November 9 against Indiana State at New Pauley Pavilion.”

No movement yet on the eligibility of Shabazz Muhammad, who of course would miss the season opener regardless with a shoulder strain.

    Jack, is there any chance that when you give the date of your posts, you can also include the time of day? It would help keep the info in perspective.

      Maybe that’s more important on still-developing stories like this, yeah.

      “As of _:__, Kyle Anderson appears to have been cleared.”

      I’ll see if it can be displayed more prominently, but as of now, the time appears if you hover over the date.

    Very good news, indeed. Would be great to get a ruling on Muhammad by the 11/9 Indiana State game….
