Former UNC Point Guard Drew Enrolls At U.C.L.A.

Larry Drew II has enrolled at UCLA after abruptly leaving North Carolina last month and vilifying his former team in a birthday party rap.
Coach Ben Howland said Drew attended classes on Monday, the first day of spring quarter. The junior will sit out next season because of NCAA rules and will have one season of eligibility remaining.

Drew left the Tar Heels in February, with coach Roy Williams saying he was shocked by the player’s unexpected departure. Drew never publicly/officially explained his reasons for leaving, but he lost his starting job as point guard in mid-January of freshman Kendall Marshall following a 20-point loss to Georgia Tech.

Drew said in a statement it feels great to be back home in Los Angeles.

He is the son of Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew, who played 10 years in the NBA, including stints with the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers.

Former Tar Heels Travis and David Wear are scheduled to play for the Bruins in the upcoming 2011-12 season.
