Miami Commit Muhammad Visits Rutgers

Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) four-star defensive end Alquadin Muhammad announced a verbal commitment to Miami during the U.S. Army All-American game, but took an official visit to Rutgers the final weekend before National Signing Day. Muhammad addressed his status following the visit.

Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) four-star defensive end Alquadin Muhammad confirmed an official visit to Rutgers with FOXSportsNext.com but remains verbally committed to Miami.

With Signing Day Wednesday, Muhammad remains committed on signing with the Hurricanes.

"Yes, Miami," said Muhammad when asked for his plans on Signing Day.

Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood was at Don Bosco Friday to see Muhammad and convinced him to take an official visit this weekend, where he spent time with former teammates Darius Hamilton, Gary Nova and Leonte Carroo.

Muhammad also spent time with former Don Bosco assistant Anthony Campanile, who is now a graduate assistant with Rutgers.

"Yes, I visited Rutgers," Muhammad said.

Muhammad learned of a Rutgers offer during the summer before his junior year, where he went on to win a state title playing next to Hamilton on the defensive line.

Though on campus at Rutgers, Miami remains in good position to add Muhammad Wednesday morning. He remains verbally committed to the Hurricanes.

"I felt comfortable after making my official visit," Muhammad told FOXSportsNEXT.com after his commitment to Miami. "I definitely think that is a place I could show may ability. They have a great academic program and I feel like I could really do well there and be the best I can be."

Muhammad chose Miami over Rutgers, Alabama and Notre Dame. As of Sunday evening, he plans to sign with Miami Wednesday morning at his school.
