  • Luther Muhammad Sets Officials to St. John’s, Butler

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Luther Muhammad, the 6-foot-4 guard from Hudson Catholic and the NY Rens AAU program, has set two official visits to St. John’s (June 23-25) and Butler (June 28-30).

    Muhammad also recently visited Notre Dame unofficially. Notre Dame recently picked up a commitment from 2018 point guard Prentiss Hubb of Washington, D.C. Gonzaga, but is still actively recruiting Muhammad.

    Meantime, Muhammad, a natural shooting guard, is transitioning to become a point guard with the Rens.

    “It’s coming along really well as far as knowing when to score, pass, slow the game down, speed the game up, knowing how to run a team, getting everyone in the right spot and putting everyone in a position to play to their strengths,” he said. “I want to make everyone around me better.”

    Said Rens coach Chris Alesi: “Luther is the prototpyical combo guard who, over the past month or so, has made a smooth transition to playing as a pure point guard, which is what he projects to be in college.

    “He’s a kid who relentlessly works on improving his game and I would say he’s a little underrated nationally. He’s an elite competitor in the mold of former Pitt standout Levance Fields.”
