Shabazz Muhammad addressed a report which revealed he is actually 20 years old and not 19 as depicted in the UCLA media guide.
Muhammad's birth date had long been reported as Nov. 13, 1993.
"I tell everyone I am 20. I don't even know what the big deal is,” Muhammad said. “People try to get stories these days, and it's really ridiculous. Twenty years old in college, guys are 22, 23 24. Most of those guys out there are old. I always say I am 20."
When asked if he knew that his age was known publicly as 19, Muhammad said: "No, I didn't. I have my ID all the time. I show my driver's license, it says 1992. That's just ridiculous … It's '92. I always say I am 20. People know I am 20."
