Bruins are back by adding Muhammad

4/11/2012

With Shabazz Muhammad joining UCLA, the Bruins' size, skill, athletic ability and scoring go to an elite level under coach Ben Howland.

Muhammad will be a highlight waiting to happen on the break. He will attack the rim from the wing, rebound on both ends at rim level with a bad attitude, and be a multiple-position defender in the Bruins' pressure man-to-man defense.

The Bruins' fast break will be a thing of beauty with fellow ESPNU 100 recruit Kyle Anderson leading the break with his great size, ballhandling and off-the-charts court vision.

Jordan Adams will stretch the defense with his shot-making ability and Muhammad will shred the defense with his powerful straight-line drives, acrobatic slashes and finishes.

It is safe to say the Bruins are back, if this young and talented group can deliver like we think it can.
