As if this Tuesday of denim celebration needed any more excitement, word broke late last night that Shabazz Muhammad would make the trip to Lexington for an evening of basketball with the Commodores. Muhammad is a player we’ve become fairly familiar with in the past few weeks as his flirtation with the Cats has intensified. Muhammad is ranked by Rivals as the top shooting guard and the third-best player overall in the class of 2012 and is looking at a number of schools, including Duke, Arizona, North Carolina and Louisville, where he was scheduled to visit this past weekend before re-scheduling. His attendance, along with the madness that will permeate Jorts Day festivities, could mean the Rupp Arena crowd gets a little rowdy. Maybe? Make it happen.
Get your Shabazz hands ready. Old man Muhammad’s boy is coming to town.
