Rivals updated their list of the 150 best players for the class of 2012 on Friday and Kentucky target Shabazz Muhammad has jumped to the top spot. Rivals.com’s national basketball analyst Jerry Meyer says of Muhammad:
Shabazz Muhammad has certainly passed through the gauntlet of scrutiny. Over time he has answered all the questions about his game and continues to improve. There might be some prospects that could end up better than Muhammad, but the odds don’t seem to be in favor of that happening. The smart move at this point is to make Muhammad the top prospect in the Rivals150
We don’t yet have a commitment from the class of 2012, but you have to think now that Muhammad has achieved the number one ranking, Coach Cal will finally give him some attention. Just kidding. Seriously, this guy will probably come to UK and then be a major NBA star. You know, the usual.
