No Current Leaders for 2012’s Shabazz Muhammad

A few weeks ago, Blue Devil Insider broke the news regarding Shabazz Muhammad’s visit to Durham for the annual Duke-UNC matchup at Cameron Indoor Stadium.  While in town Muhammad also stopped by the campus of rival North Carolina.  The visit to UNC occurred the day after the Blue Devils’ victory over the Tar Heels.  Not long after the visit to UNC several recruiting analysts began labeling North Carolina as the leader to land Muhammad.  This idea was further reinforced by the fact that Roy Williams flew out to visit Muhammad in Nevada just 2 days after visiting North Carolina.  Despite this action and the chatter of many recruiting analysts, BDI has learned that UNC is not the leader for Muhammad at this point in time.  A source close to Muhammad noted that the young wing forward currently has no leaders and is simply looking to take the recruiting process one step at a time.  The source also noted that Muhammad was unlikely to make a decision about where he would attend college anytime soon, although the class of 2012 wing is considering several schools including Arizona, Duke, UCLA, UNC, Texas, and a few others.
