Forward Musa Jallow remains with a strong list despite a lot of recent staff changes

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Forward Musa Jallow is having a solid NBPA Top 100 Camp, and continues to take a long look at his recruitment, as coaching changes have had a big impact on his school list.

One of the most athletic forwards in the country is Musa Jallow. The Indiana native has improved quite a bit over the past 12 months and continues to show progress with his game. Recently some of the schools on his list experienced coaching changes, but Jallow continues to look forward in his recruitment.

"My recruitment is pretty open," noted Jallow. "I have a bunch of offers from Stanford, Butler, Ohio State, Purdue, Indiana, Virginia, and schools like that," said Jallow.

The NBPA Top 100 camp takes place at Virginia, and it is a place that Jallow has been several times.

"It’s a really good experience to be here," said Jallow. "I have been a few times for unofficial visits and I like the area, so it has been a fun experience."

About Virginia in general, Jallow said, "I like Coach (Tony) Bennett and how he runs his team. The humbleness that he has and his commitment to defense, I just like that a lot."

Another school that has been active for the academically inclined Jallow is Stanford.

When it comes to Stanford, Jallow said, "They say I am a top priority and that they like my versatility and what I can bring to the table."

Two schools with recent coaching changes also are high on Jallow's list. He lives in the shadow of Indiana University, and things continue to be a work in progress with the new staff.

"I haven’t talked to them too much," said Jallow of Indiana. "I have gone over there twice to talk with Coach (Archie) Miller and his staff. They still have to see me more. They were only able to see one tournament, so they are still figuring things out."

The other school with a recent change is Ohio State, and things are status quo with the Buckeyes who offered Jallow before the coaching change.

"I haven’t talked to Coach (Chris) Holtmann but I have talked to the assistant coaches," said Jallow. "They tell me that I am going to be one of their top priorities like I was at Butler, and also with the previous Ohio State staff."

For now Jallow is in no hurry to make a decision and says he wants to make visits after the summer before issuing a commitment.
