Around and around the recruiting world Shabazz Muhammad goes, where he lands nobody knows. This week, the “internet buzz” on Shabazz is on the Kansas Jayhawks. Tis news comes of course, after Shabazz paid a visit to Kansas this past weekend and watched the Jayhawks clip Missouri 69-68. Shabazz’s dad Ron Holmes sounded as giddy as a pre-teen at a Bieber concert and gushed over the experience at the Phog:
“And it’s just a program, man. You look at winning eight Big 12 championships in [Bill Self's] years. And even if you look at the team this year, it’s not as good as the team last year, so there’s never a dip there.
“The crowd support was very, very good after the game, wherever we went to go eat. Just everybody wearing their Kansas stuff. It’s just a program. I was just very, very impressed.
“I understand why when kids go there, they commit after an official visit because it was second to none in that area.”
Expect more similar gushing next week over Duke as the pair visit Cameron Indoor to watch Duke battle North Carolina. For the record, Shabazz is still considering Kentucky, along with Duke, Kansas, UNLV, Arizona, and UCLA. Muhammad is expected to make a decision as soon as early April, which is after the period that NBA players declare for the draft. In other words, Shabazz is likely to be influenced by who stays and who goes.
