Shabazz Muhammad, one of the most electric scorers in high school basketball and one of the most sought-after recruits in the Class of 2012, has told coaches involved in his recruitment that he will commit to UCLA during a televised ceremony Wednesday night on ESPNU, according to CBS Sports' Jeff Borzello.
Muhammad, a senior at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, chose the Bruins over Kentucky and Duke, and will team with lanky point guard Kyle Anderson to form perhaps the best one-two punch in the Class of 2012. Muhammad is Rivals' No. 1 Class of 2012 player, and Anderson is No. 2.
Muhammad is known for his work ethic and his versatility as a scorer, and is coming off a dominant performance at the 2012 Nike Hoop Summit last weekend where he topped the previous record for points in a game. SB Nation's Ben Golliver named Muhammad one of the top five NBA prospects in attendance.
