Shakur To Decide Soon

Mustafa Shakur has completed his official visit schedule. The only thing remaining to close out the final chapter in his recruitment is a decision and he's working on preparations for that now.

Shakur's Decision Time Near

For fans and coaches alike at Arizona and NC State, it'll all be over soon. Mustafa Shakur has completed his visits and he'll decide in the very near future.

Shakur said that he'll definitely have a press conference to announce to the growing community of interested parties what he intends to do with his college decision. "I wasn't going to [have a press conference] at first but I think I will now," Shakur said. "We're working on a date for that. Either the end of this week or next week."

Shakur completed his official visit to NC State on Sunday but he continues to play his cards close to the vest. Some of the best recruits not only are terrific on the court but know how to turn up the drama off it and Shakur's decision ranks as one of the most anticipated announcements of the year. "It's not over yet. Not until I decide."

Shakur didn't tip his cap one bit Sunday night. "It's tough say," Mustafa said about his choice. "I'd rather not say."

We asked him what would be the hallmarks of both his visits. Here's what he said that he enjoyed about the Wildcats. "Just being around the players and seeing how they did just about everything together," Shakur said about his favorite part of the trip.

And as for NC State? "The most impressive thing to me was just how hard Julius Hodge works."

So, the top ranked point guard in the country is close to deciding. He's keeping the news to himself and the recruiting world should know his decision sometime in the next week to 10 days.

"I don't feel any pressure."
