Since the Sports Illustrated expose of the UCLA basketball program came out this morning, everyone’s been wondering how it would affect the Bruins’ recruitment of Shabazz Muhammad. His father, Ron Holmes, told ESPN’s Dave Telep that the story wouldn’t necessarily eliminate UCLA from the running, but they will “have to get control of that program”:
“It doesn’t really effect us that much but UCLA is going to have to get control of that program if they’re going to go forward. You have to discipline those guys and get rid of them if need be.”
“… Yes, (Shabazz) could go to school there right now because I understand what was going on. I saw (Reeves) Nelson’s shenanigans. He was out of control and I was trying to figure it out because I’ve always heard that Coach Howland was a disciplinarian. Eventually Coach Howland did (dismiss Nelson),” said Holmes, who played basketball at USC. “It doesn’t effect us in that regard but obviously it has some effect because when you put that program against other programs that don’t have issues, it might have an effect.”
Time to pounce.
