Muhammad Cites Comfort Level With Coach As Biggest Factor In Decision
Shabazz Muhammad will make his college announcement Wednesday and is dreading having to deliver the bad news to the losing schools.
"That's definitely the hardest part," Muhammad said. "Especially knowing that I like all of these schools. If I could go to all three of these schools, I would. The relationships I have with Coach K, Coach Howland and Coach Cal, having to tell two of those guys no will be really hard for me."
Muhammad, who is considering Duke, UCLA, and Kentucky, said his decision will depend on his comfort level with the coach.
"It's going to be a pros-and-cons thing," Muhammad said. "We are going to sit down and really discuss everything about the schools. It's going to be a lot of how comfortable I am with the coach. I think that's the big thing for me. Next year I'm going to have to take on really trying to be a leader, and how comfortable I am with the coach and how well we communicate is going to be the biggest factor in my choice."
