Five Star Hoops Recruit Likely To Visit A&M

New Aggie assistant coach and ace recruiter, Glynn Cyprien, didn't waste much time making his presence known in College Station. A&M has offered and will likely receive a visit from five star 2012 recruit Shabazz Muhammad, who comes from Cyprien's old stomping grounds in Las Vegas. Muhammad is a 6 foot 6 and 215 pound small forward who is rated as the country's second best overall player for the class of 2012, and is drawing big attention from the nation's top programs. Included in his list of offers are such traditional powers as Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina. While it will be an extreme long shot for A&M to land Muhammad come signing day, just getting a visit from such a high profile player will only help A&M put itself on the national radar screen for top prospects. Pursuing these types of players was something that former coach Mark Turgeon was all too reluctant to do. The new staff and attitude under current coach Bill Kennedy appears to be a welcome change for the advancement of Texas A&M as a basketball program, and getting any type of attention from a top national recruit like Muhammad is very encouraging for the future.
