  • LOS ANGELES  — Guard Kobe Paras won’t be attending UCLA this fall and won’t be playing basketball for the Bruins.

    The school said Wednesday that Paras has withdrawn from school after failing to meet academic conditions that were part of his admittance.

    Paras had signed a national letter of intent with the Bruins during the early signing period last November. The 6-foot-5 guard spent the last two years in Los Angeles after growing up in the Philippines. He was a senior at Cathedral High School.

    Paras helped lead the Philippines to a gold medal in the FIBA Asia Under-18 3×3 championship in May 2013. He won the slam dunk contest at the FIBA 3×3 championships in June 2015 while representing the Philippines.

    Paras’ father, Benjie, played professionally in the Philippines.(PS)
