We asked him if any favorites had emerged after all the visits this month. "Not really" Mustafa said, "Each Coach has approached me in a similar way, yet each Coach has a special point they make."
The attention that the rangy point guard is garnering can create conflicts. "My schedule is busy. When I get out of school, I have a 1 hour train trip to get home and I play ball. Theres not a lot of time left, so sometimes the recruiting process can be a conflict."
Shakur's time table reflects his desire to remain wide open until mid-summer. "I hope to get the list down to 5 or 6 schools after the camps. Right now I'm concentrating on AAU ball (Hunter Park Warriors). We are scheduled to play in Virginia in a couple of weeks."
Mustafa has remained humble through the process, especially when it comes to talking about his game. He explains, "I have a hard time and I feel uncomfortable talking about my game. I concentrate on playing and really do not know how to describe myself." The Insiders has Shakur listed as the #1 Point Guard Prospect in the Class of 2003.
Mustafa also has a busy summer lined up as well. He plans on attending the ABCD Addidas camp, USA Camp as well as the NBA camp if no conflicts exist in scheduling.
