The man, the myth, the legend that is Shabazz Muhammad spoke to C2CHoops.com on Wednesday night about his play recently and, of course, his recruitment. Shabazz said that Coach K has probably been talking to him the most recently and they have a “good relationship” (blegh!), but that he still doesn’t have a favorite among Arizona, Duke, UCLA, Kentucky, UNLV, and Kansas (although he forgot to mention the Jayhawks during the interview…score!). As for the Cats, Shabazz said that he spoke to them last week and was impressed with the recruits that have signed so far. Apparently he’s also putting in two extra hours of shooting each day after practice, working specifically on his jump shot.
In an interview with CBSSports.com’s Jeff Borzello, Shabazz was equally as cryptic about his decision, insisting he won’t make one until he’s taken all of his official visits, the last three of which are scheduled for Duke, Kansas and Arizona. When asked about the Cats, Shabazz said Cal’s trip to see him play in the Hoophall Classic a few weeks ago did not go unnoticed:
“The interest level is high,” Muhammad said. “Coach Cal was at my game. I talked to them a week ago. I just think I fit really well in their style of play.”
Guess who else was there? Mr. Stretch Limo himself, Mike Krzyzewski:
“Coach K is just a mastermind,” he said. “I’m really getting excited about going down there.”
Hrmph. I knew I should have become a mind reader.
