One of the Garden State's top athletes this year is Amir Pinnix of Newark (N.J.) Malcom Shabazz. At 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Amir could play a variety of positions at the next level and that has college recruiters very interested.
So far he has two official visits set up and is working on a few dates for others.
"I'm going to Rutgers on Dec. 6. I'm looking forward to that because I'm hearing from a lot of people that they do a great job. I also have Indiana on Dec. 13 and I'm trying to work out a date with Minnesota as well."
