Four-star guard Jaeden Mustaf sets commitment date

Four-star guard Jaeden Mustaf is not only set to officially visit Maryland next month, but now, he’s ready to make his commitment.

Mustaf, a 6-foot-5 guard originally from Bowie, MD, will announce his commitment on September 14 between Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Maryland and NC State.

Maryland jumped into the picture for Mustaf after Mike Jones joined the program as an assistant coach, giving the Terps an immediate connection to one of Jones’s former players. Mustaf made his way to campus for an unofficial visit earlier this summer where he was able to watch the Terps practice before reconnecting with the coaching staff, while he has already taken official visits to Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana and NC State. Mustaf has also hit the road and visited Virginia Tech in the past while Jones was still with the Hokies, giving credence to the continued relationship between Mustaf and his former DeMatha head coach. After checking out several schools dating back to the beginning of his junior year, the desire to wrap up his recruitment continued into summer and now, his upcoming official visit to Maryland set for September 1 is the lone visit set with a decision date set.

“I’m looking for a family-oriented program,” Mustaf said in an interview with On3. “A place where I am able just to be myself. I want to go somewhere I can be coached hard, improve my game, and win all at the same time,” Mustaf told On3. “I think being able to play the one, two, or the three at the next level, not being restricted into playing any one way. I’ll want to play in a set system but with the freedom to make plays.”

Mustaf suits up for Boo Williams on the Nike EYBL Circuit where the four-star guard averaged 17.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. Mustaf shot 80.9 percent on from the free throw line, along with shooting 20.5% from three on 44 attempts. Mustaf announced his transfer from Carmel Christian to Overtime Elite for his senior season where he’ll enroll in mid-August.

Mustaf is rated a four-star prospect and a 95 overall by On3, sitting as the 44th-best prospect in the country.
