Andrew Slater’s in depth [2000 word] interview with Shabazz Muhammad is the type of offering which makes BDN Premium your choice for Duke Basketball Recruiting information. His reports continue on our message board where I am sending back info from the Peach Jam as it happens. There is one day left on our trial offer, so take advantage of it and see the BDN difference for yourself
Shabazz Muhammad is a 6-5 rising junior who was born in California. Muhammad has yet to win Nevada state titles in each of his two years of high school basketball at Bishop Gorman. The first-team All-State wing averaged nearly twenty points and ten rebounds per game during this past season. The gregarious and competitive Muhammad was the first player in the class of 2012 to receive a scholarship offer for basketball from Duke University. His parents were both high-caliber athletes as well. His mother, Faye, is in Long Beach State’s Hall of Fame for her contributions in both track as well as basketball and his engaging father, Ron Holmes, played the wing at the University of Southern California for Coach Stan Morrison in the early 1980s and currently helps to coach Shabazz and his younger brother, Rashad, for their respective DreamVision AAU teams. At the recent Adidas Invitational, in which he averaged more than thirty points per game, Shabazz graciously spoke with Blue Devil Nation about a multitude of topics, including the advantages of being both left-handed and genetically blessed, his sister Asia’s burgeoning tennis career, and fellow Duke recruit, Alex Murphy.
Let’s start with the most basic question. What schools are coming after you hardest right now?
Pretty much a lot of schools on my list are coming after me. Texas, Kansas, USC, UCLA, Louisville, Duke, and some I didn’t name, but I’m just looking to play hard, play with a purpose, and I know pretty much all of these schools are looking at how I play.
There were plenty of coaches out there today.
Yeah, and so I’m going to go out there and try to perform.
Do you have a timeframe for when you’d like to decide by?
I don’t know yet, but I’m going to try to get some more visits in. I think it’ll be this upcoming year, my junior year, though.
