School: Kennesaw Mountain HS (Kennesaw, GA)
Ht/Wt/40: 6-foot-3 / 240lbs / 4.7
Projected Position: Defensive End
Recruiting Recap: Shabazz chose Duke in July over offers from Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, East Carolina, Southern Miss, and Central Florida.
He carries a 3.4 GPA in the classroom, he bench presses 375 pounds, he squats 465 pounds, and power cleans 335 pounds.
Quotable: "Academics were my top priority. Then, you know, it was about finding the school that fit me the best. I'd like to play defensive end in a 4-3, but I'm open to playing linebacker even though I haven't played it before."
Self Evaluation: "I am best at getting penetration, making tackles in the backfield, and getting pressure on the quarterback right now, but I know I can get a lot better."
Projected 2014 Season Status: Shabazz will redshirt during his first season in Durham.
