Shabazz Muhammad, a 6-foot-6 senior guard from Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High, who is ranked No. 1 nationally by Rivals.com, will welcome Kansas University’s coaches into his home Sept. 14.
At that time, he may finalize plans for an official visit.
“Coach Townsend (Kurtis, assistant) talked about Shabazz taking a visit when all the former players return in September,” Muhammad’s dad, Ron Holmes, told jayhawkslant.com. He was referring to possibly attending the Sept. 24 Legends of the Phog alumni game in Allen Fieldhouse.
He has also scheduled in-home visits with UCLA (Sept. 9), Duke (Sept. 12) and Kentucky (Sept. 13). Arizona, Texas, Texas A&M;, UNLV and USC are also on his current list of prospective colleges.
“Shabazz received an offer from Kansas right after the elite camp (three years ago). It’s about the program and the familiarity with the program and the relationship he has with the coaching staff,” Holmes said.
