Shabazz Muhammad has left everybody guessing where he will attend college next season. However, nobody was surprised by his dominating performance in the Sprite Jam Fest Slam Dunk Contest.
Muhammad, rated the nation’s top senior prospect by Scout.com, recorded a perfect score of 70 on each of his four dunks, and won the contest, edging Kentucky Wildcats signee Archie Goodwin, UConn women’s signee Breanna Stewart and uncommitted prospect Anthony Bennett.

Muhammad closed out the contest with a one-handed alley-oop slam from outside the free throw line, drawing a ’10′ from each of the seven celebrity judges. However, that was not the dunk that he had originally planned.
“I was going to do the behind-the-back dunk, but Archie(Goodwin) did that; I had it in the back of my mind,” Muhammad told the media after the contest. “I got up there pretty well and put the dunk down. I was pretty excited.”
