Stone Mountain (Ga.) Stephenson cornerback Ahmed Shakoor has wrapped up his recruitment. After visits to two camps this weekend in the Big East and ACC, the 5-foot-11, 189-pounder committed to one of the programs.
"I was at Louisville and Georgia Tech," he said. "I liked Georgia Tech a lot, but I really liked Louisville and I ended up committing to coach Kragthorpe today.
"They first came on to me a long time ago and finished off the deal today. I got to meet the coaches and see the facilities. I could tell the coaches really know what they're talking about. I especially got to talk with defensive coordinator Mike Cassity. He's an upfront guy that tells you everything that's going on. He told me how he had players in the NFL and that struck me, I had to commit then."
Shakoor went and committed to Steve Kragthorpe following the camp.
"I gave him the word right after the camp," he said. "I told him I have to be there and he was really excited about it along with the rest of the staff. I could tell they really wanted me.
"I haven't seen much of the student life there yet, but I know they are a good academic school and I love the tradition."
Shakoor has been recruited by the Cardinals to play cornerback.
The question now is, is the corner firm with his decision?
"I think Louisville is right for my, I'm focused on them, but my eyes are still open and I plan to at least take a few other visits still."
Shakoor accounted for 1,100 yards of offense and 20 touchdowns last season. He added 55 tackles and two interceptions on defense.
