Interview with VirginiaPreps:

We recently has a nice conversation with Ahmad and learned quite a bit about this highly sought after linebacker.

Despite reports of his running a 4.4 or 4.5 forty time, Ahmad told us that his fastest is really a 4.62.  "I can improve that, as I have not really been timed this summer" he said.  When asked about why he has not attended any college camps this summer Ahmad told us, "I did not want to show any favoritism towards any colleges and by attending a particulars school's camp it might have been interpreted that I favored that school."  Ahmad did attend the Nike camp in April.

Schools that he will definitely visit include Florida State, Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia.  "There are a lot of schools that I am interested in that have shown interest in me," Ahmad said. Other schools that might receive an official visit include: Notre Dame, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, West Virginia, and Pittsburgh.  Ahmad told us that the list is subject to change. When asked if distance might play a part in his decision, Ahmad said, "Yes it will be a factor, both my mother and father would like to be able to come see most of my games."  Ahmad also said, "If all of the top high school players would stay in state, we would have two great college programs."

Ahmad's parents both attended Southern University, and while they are both from Louisiana, Ahmad has lived in Virginia all of his life.  His father played for the Redskins, which just happens to be Ahmad's favorite NFL team.  When asked about playing for the Skins in the NFL, Ahmad just laughed and said, "I would play for any team to get a chance at that level".  

Ahmad told us that he enjoys playing basketball, video games (he even gave me a few hints on the new NBA Street Playstation 2 game - maybe now I can beat my son!) and  plans to play varsity basketball for Hylton this winter after the football season is over.  But his current plans are to enjoy the football season, "give it 100% and make up for the time I did not get to play last year" (Ahmad missed most of last season with an ankle injury that he says is now completely healed), "This is going to be my year," he told us.
