Local schools prioritize Musa Jallow

Class of 2018 forward Musa Jallow continues to be a top target of schools who like to recruit in the state of Indiana.

One of the more heavily recruited prospects in the state of Indiana in 2018 is Musa Jallow. At around 6-foot-5 with very good leaping ability and a pretty high motor, local programs have been paying close attention to Jallow, and he works hard to improve as a sophomore.

“As a team we started off pretty good,” said Jallow. “We dropped a few games early, but we were making progress, and the season has gone well.”

He continued, “I am working hard on my shot and being able to score with my back to the basket.”

On the recruiting trail Indiana Head Coach Tom Crean sees nearly all of Jallow’s games since his son is Jallow’s teammate on Bloomington North. The Hoosiers offered Jallow a scholarship earlier in the year, but they aren’t the only program showing him significant interest.

“I am hearing from Indiana, Michigan, and Butler mostly,” noted Jallow.

About the offer from Indiana, Jallow said, “It was a great thing to get that offer, and it is something that I worked hard for. But I know I have to just kind of forget about it and focus on getting better, but it was definitely great to get that offer.

Also the Michigan Wolverines have been monitoring him closely and continue to be very interested in his development as a player.

“Definitely they like the way I play,” said Jallow of Michigan. “The assistants have seen me a lot and they are excited about me, and I am keeping an eye on them.”

Beyond those two the in-state Butler Bulldogs have been paying significant attention to Jallow and remain a major factor in his recruitment.

“I have been up there before and I like them, so it is pretty much the same thing,” explained Jallow. “Their assistants say they like me a lot.”

For now Jallow says he isn’t focused on making an early decision and is instead wanting to improve as a player and continue to learn about the schools showing him attention.
