Greenwood’s Aminu Mohammed has remained five-star status over his high school career and there’s many reasons why. The dynamic-wing averaged nearly a triple-double during his first two seasons and continues the success during year three.
According to 247Sports, Mohammed is the No. 15 ranked player in the composite rankings and is the fourth-rated small forward.
He’s seen his recruitment grow over the past two years in drastic ways. Blue bloods didn’t show much interest but many high-majors are involved in his recruitment.
Among the programs involved: Kansas State, Louisville, Maryland, Georgia, Pittsburgh, Indiana, Wake Forest, amongst many others. Out of this list, many of the head coaches have conducted several virtual calls and will continue that stretch.
The first head coach to reach out when the pandemic started: Louisville’s Chris Mack. Since, Mohammed says that they call at least once a week.
Indiana’s Archie Miller conducted a full-staff zoom meeting with Mohammed weeks back and according to his guardian Shawn Harmon, it went extremely well and Miller emphasized that he’s a priority.
Another program, is Maryland. Head coach Mark Turgeon and his staff remain in heavy contact and have already conducted several calls with him.
In addition, Georgetown, Wake Forest Pittsburgh, and Georgia are the newer programs involved as all three offered a scholarship over the last two weeks.
“All coaches are saying that they see me as a dynamic player that can really elevate their program and they’d love to coach me.”
As far as those new programs go, all remain in consistent contact but Mohammed said that Georgia is making a major push and hasn’t stopped contacting him since they offered.
No new programs are involved since and as far as timetables for, it’s likely that he will wait till on-campus visits are allowed.
