Four-star DL Muhammad Recaps Rutgers Visit

RAMSEY, N.J. – Four-star Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) defensive end Alquadin Muhammad continues to devote his energies to his senior season instead of recruiting, but made time for an unofficial visit to Rutgers last weekend. Muhammad discussed Rutgers, Notre Dame and the latest in his recruitment Friday night after his team's dominant victory over Paramus Catholic (N.J.).

RAMSEY, N.J. – Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) four-star defensive end Alquadin Muhammad has no visits planned and does not expect to take any more during the season with an emphasis on winning another national title.

But with Don Bosco on a bye last weekend, the top defensive end prospect in the state spent the day at Rutgers on an unofficial visit. Muhammed said it will likely be his only visit until his season ends in December.

"I basically went to go watch the game and see the place again," Muhammad said. "It was great. Rutgers is a place I'm seriously considering, but I don't have a leader. Everyone is still even."

Muhammad is close with defensive line coach Jim Panagos, but said he most enjoyed spending time with former assistant coach Anthony Campanile and teammates Gary Nova, Darius Hamilton and Leonte Carroo. He spend post-game in the locker room celebrating the team's win over Connecticut to reach 5-0.

"It was awesome," Muhammad said. "I missed those guys because I haven't seen them in almost a year. They're my brothers and we won a championship together."

Alabama, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Michigan and Michigan State are all schools of interest, but Muhammad said he does not have any official visits planned.

"Honestly, I'm really not talking much with anybody right now," Muhammad said. "I'm talking to Don Bosco because we're trying to win a championship. Most of that stuff I'm going to worry about in December."

Recent buzz surrounding Notre Dame, Muhammad said, is "nonsense from Twitter."

"I like Notre Dame a lot but they're not my leader or anything," Muhammad said. "I don't have a leader."

Like former teammate Elijah Shumate, Muhammad will come to a decision and announce his choice at the U.S. Army All-American game.

"I'm still going to announce at the all-star game," Muhammad said. "I'm excited for it."
