USC set to pay visit to top recruit
With the 2011-2012 season still over a month away, the USC menâs basketball coaching staff is scheduled to visit the Las Vegas home of Shabazz Muhammad, ranked No. 1 overall in the ESPNU 100 for the class of 2012, for the second time in a month, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com.
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Muhammad attends Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas.
The left-handed small forward has also expressed an interest in UCLA, Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and UNLV, among other top college programs.
USC coach Kevin OâNeill and associate head coach Bob Cantu also visited Muhammad and his family on Sept. 9, the first day of the NCAA contact period.
Muhammadâs father is former Trojans forward Ron Holmes, who played for USC in the mid-1980s.
Muhammad is also scheduled to visit the USC campus on the weekend of Oct. 28 and attend the USC-Stanford football game to be played on Oct. 29. His only other scheduled visit is a trip to Kentucky on Oct. 14 for the the Wildcatsâ Big Blue Madness practice-kickoff event, the report said.
The Trojans already have two commits for the class of 2012: guard Larry Lewis from Phoenix and forward Strahinja Gavrilovic of Serbia.
