Vegas prep Shabazz Muhammad to host KU coaches

September 1, 2011


Shabazz Muhammad, a 6-foot-6 senior guard from Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High, who is ranked No. 1 nationally by, 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 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.

New name: Waverly Austin, a 6-11, 255-pound sophomore center from Palm Beach (Fla) State College, told he has received a scholarship offer from KU. The former South Florida signee also is considering Oklahoma, Missouri, Miami, Clemson, South Florida, Washington and Washington State. Austin has yet to schedule a visit.

Self will not be here much longer after his kids leave the nest. With the conference alignment ever changing and hard to get the top recruits is playing in the head of Self irregardless of his talk about staying around.

Is that what the voices in your head are telling you?

Pigballin, for all these years I thought you were an intelligent bloke. However, there is no such word as 'irregardless".

Seems like a waste on Shabazz. He stays out west most likely. Outside chance he goes to UK. The juco kid seems to be right up Self's alley though. Good shot at him.
