Ali-Musa Is Drawing A Lot Of Attention
"My trip was great," Ali-Musa told JCFootball.com after returning home from Amherst. "They had a great atmosphere there and the players and coaches were great too."
The visit to see UMass was Ali-Musa's first official visit and the Minutemen are one of four schools to offer the talented and versatile defensive line prospects, joining Buffalo, Tennessee-Martin and Bethune Cookman.
As a freshman last season, Ali-Musa led the Lions with five sacks and 13.5 tackles-for-loss while also posting 42 tackles, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery from his strongside defensive end spot.
"I am relentless," Ali-Musa noted. "I never take any plays off. I am probably a better pass-rusher than anything, but I am improving a lot as a run-stuffer.
"I've been working on a lot of things this offseason, but I have really been focused on running and lifting. I've been doing a lot of hill running and lunges and front squats."
As a prep, Ali-Musa was a solid prospect from Annandale (Va.) High School, but he was unable to get qualified, so he headed to Nassau to continue playing football and to get his academics in order.
"My friend from back home told me about Nassau and he gave the coach my number we spoke and then he got me up here," Ali-Musa recalled.
Ali-Musa will finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
