OG Paul Mubenga (6-4 280) of Buford, GA took his first official visit last weekend to North Carolina. This weekend he is headed to Michigan for an official visit. Next will come trips to Texas A&M and LSU. So, all of his remaining June weekends are taken. USC is the fifth school he plans to visit, and Mubenga definitely wants to see head coach Shane Beamer and offensive line coach Greg Adkins again after visiting for the spring game in April.
“I’ve been hearing a lot from them. They are really showing me a lot of love,” Mubenga said. “Personally being recruited by Shane Beamer himself, talking on the phone with him, and with Coach Adkins as well.”
Adkins, in particular, has made a great impression on Mubenga.
“He’s doing a good job,” Mubenga said. “He told me how I would fit into the program pretty well. And based on how he sees me progressing as an interior lineman, since I’m young and still have some room to grow, my versatility will allow me to play any position inside. That’s what he likes about me and that’s why he recruited me to South Carolina.”
Mubenga said he had a very good visit to North Carolina last weekend, but that hasn’t given the Tar Heels a leg up on the rest of the field.
“Everybody has got a chance to get me,” Mubenga said. “Just whoever is going to show me the most academically, football-wise and just where I’ll be successful at the place where I will be at. That’s just some of the factors that’s going to help me make my decision, but everybody’s got a chance.”
Mubenga said he’s eyeing late July or early August for his commitment decision.
