UGA Football Recruiting: Naim Mustafaa sticking with Bulldogs

Four-star linebacker recruit Naim Mustafaa is taking all his official visits, but he is still committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs next fall.

Despite taking an official visit to the Tennessee Volunteers when they played the Alabama Crimson Tide, four-star linebacker recruit Naim Mustafaa maintains in an interview with Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he is still committed to play next season for the Georgia Bulldogs despite not being able to put a percentage on just how committed he is:

"I couldn't put any percentage on it. It's still the same. I'm still committed to Georgia, and there's no reason for a change. I'm just taking my visits."

The 6'4, 235-pound recruit from Alpharetta, Ga. is the son of former NFL player Najee Mustafaa (Reggie Rutland) who played his college football for the Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets are still trying to sway Mustafaa to play for the same school that his father played for. While he hasn't scheduled an official visit, he may check out a game soon at his father's alma mater.

Mustafaa also has an official visit scheduled for the Oklahoma St. Cowboys within the next two weeks and will tour the Georgia campus at some point. Last weekend, Mustafaa watched the Bulldogs upset the Florida Gators. He paid particular attention to linebacker Jarvis Jones, who plays the same position that Mustafaa is being recruited for.
