The No. 2 college basketball recruit in the country, according to the 2012 ESPNU 100 list, Shabazz Muhammad will make his decision tonight of where he will be attending college next year. The decision will be a part of an ESPNU Signing Day Special which will air at 7:30 p.m. EST tonight on ESPNU, ESPN3, and WatchESPN.com. Muhammad will make his decision at 7:45 p.m. EST before the No. 1 recruit on ESPNU’s recruiting list, Nerlens Noel, makes his decision at 8:45 p.m. EST.
Muhammad will choose between a list three schools, the 2012 National Champions in Kentucky, UCLA, and Duke. As a Duke fan this is huge news, and all of Blue Devil Nation is hoping that Muhammad will choose Cameron Indoor Stadium as his home court for the 2012-13 season.
Muhammad is an explosive 6’6″ small forward who can drive to the basket and shoot from any spot on the floor. Here is his scouting report on Rivals.com:
A relentless competitor, Muhammad is a physical wing scorer who loves to attack the basket. He also has a reliable jump shot and a terrific turn around jumper in the post. Also, a danger on the glass, Muhammad is a solid ball handler and passer, but is not known for his ability to create for teammates. on the other side of the ball, he is an above average defender.

Come 7:45 p.m. EST I hope that I will be watching Muhammad on television wearing a Duke Blue Devils hat. Can’t wait for the decision. Stay tuned!
