Alpharetta defensive end/linebacker Naim Mustafaa committed to Georgia this evening giving the Bulldogs 20 commitments for the 2013 recruiting class. Due to defections and early enrollees, the Dawgs could possibly sign as many as 33 in February.
The battle for Mustafaa’s commitment was between the Bulldogs and in-state rival Georgia Tech. Naim’s father Najee played for the Yellow Jackets and in the NFL for nine years.
“Both schools did such a good job and it was such a hard decision to make,” Mustafaa told UGASports.com. “Both defenses are great fits for me, and I really liked both schools, but I just wanted to play for Coach (Todd) Grantham’s defense. It is so explosive, and I feel I fit perfect in that defense.”
Rivals.com rates Naim Mustafaa (6-4, 235, 4.71) as a 4-star recruit and the no. 13 weakside defensive end. Scout.com also rates him as a 4-star recruit and the no. 19 defensive end.
Mustafaa, who plays for Alpharetta High School, also had offers from Arizona State, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and others.
