After his flight from Memphis to Atlanta landed Saturday evening, Musa Abdul-Aleem and the other passengers were stuck onboard for nearly an hour because of issues at the security gate.

Other than that, everything about his visit to the University of Memphis went off without a hitch.

"I loved my visit," Abdul-Aleem told TigerAuthority.com. "It was wonderful and really amazing. I just had a good time. They showed me a great time."

He hit all the Memphis staples in Beale Street and FedExForum. Abdul-Aleem, who practices Islam, was also taken to a mosque near campus.

During his visit, which ran from Thursday to Saturday, he was shown a video of strength and conditioning coach Frank Matrisciano. Matrisciano also spoke to Abdul-Aleem about how "he was the best in the world," he said.

"He made me comfortable that he'd put me in the best condition I could possibly be in," Abdul-Aleem said.

Abdul-Aleem also played pickup ball at the Finch Center with the team.

"Those guys are really talented," he said. "They were great players and great guys. They can play."

Before he left campus for the airport, Abdul-Aleem said he had a final meeting with U of M coach Josh Pastner.

"It was real positive, very positive," Abdul-Aleem said. "He said my offer's still on the table and just to be patient. … It was very positive."

Abdul-Aleem has a visit scheduled to South Florida for Sept. 16 and 17. He said he'd like to probably schedule one more, although he hasn't decided on the destination.

"Once October comes, I'm going to cut the visiting down and look toward the season," Abdul-Aleem said.
