Bruins are back by adding Muhammad

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.
