Rashad Muhammad is the younger brother of the much heralded Shabazz Muhammad, HoopScoop’s top ranked player in the class of 2012, but he is not overshadowed by his family’s extensive athletic bloodlines. Rashad’s father, Ron, played basketball at Southern California and his mother, Faye, was an All-American in track at Long Beach State. His older sister, Asia, who spent time at the Agassi Academy, is a budding tennis professional. The youngest Muhammad is a 6’4″ guard, from Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas, NV, who will team with his older brother in a bid to bring the school three consecutive 4A state titles. Last weekend, he competed with Dream Vision at the Bob Gibbons AAU tournament in North Carolina and toured the schools of the Triangle region. This past weekend, he was invited to the Pangos All-American Camp in Long Beach, California. The rising sophomore played well enough to be selected to the Top 50 Cream of the Crop Game, one of only three members of the class of 2013. After the game, Rashad spoke with Blue Devil Nation about a variety of topics including his recruitment, how he compares, competes, and plays with Shabazz, and his favorite school growing up.
It’s very early in the process, but what schools have expressed interest in you and do you have any firm offers so far?

What position are those schools looking at you for? What do you like to play?
I’m really more of a one now. I’m trying to learn it. I’ve played the two before, but I just want to learn the one right now.
What’s your current height and weight?
I’m 6’4″ and 180.
Who’s your favorite player?
My favorite player is Kobe Bryant. Yeah (laughs)
How about competing against your brother? That’s got to be a unique experience.
Yeah, it is. We always clash, but
