The Los Angeles Daily News reported yesterday (July 23) that Serbian center Marko Spica (6-9, 230), who signed with UCLA last November, was not admitted to the school.
Spica was recruited for UCLA by then Bruin assistant coach Ernie Zeigler, who was named head coach at Central Michigan University three weeks ago. The newspaper reports that sources close to the situation say it's likely Spica will join Zeigler at CMU.
Spica, rated a three-star recruit by Scout.com, signed a binding national letter of intent with UCLA in the fall, and got through the NCAA clearinghouse. But his admission to UCLA was denied according to the the newspaper, blocking his chance of playing for the Bruins. He averaged 11 points and seven rebounds as a junior playing for the High School of Sport in Belgrade.
An announcement on the developments could come within a few days according to the newspaper.
