Ameer Shamsud-din, 6-2 SR PG Portland (Ore.) Benson Tech, is a very intriguing prospect with a nice upside. Shamsud-din has the size to possibly play either guard spot, with a very nice frame and solid athleticism.
I spoke with Shamsud-din recently and he gave me his list of schools.
"I'm hearing from Loyola Marymount, Nevada, Oregon State, San Jose State, Boise State and Nevada," said Shamsud-din. "All of them have offered."
Shamsud-din has an official visit to LMU scheduled for next Thursday and he said he may visit Nevada sometime around Sept. 23rd. Oregon State will be coming in for an in-home visit on Monday, Sept. 10th and LMU is scheduled to come up on the 11th.
I asked Shamsud-din if he feels like he's getting close to a decision.
"Yes, I'm getting close," said Shamsud-din. "I don't want to drag it out too long."
Shamsud-din talked a little about the factors he'll consider when choosing a school.
"I want to go to a good program, in a good environment," said Shamsud-din. "Someplace where I can do well in school and have good people around me."
