Recruiting Update: Jabri Abdur-Rahim

Top-40 junior Jabri Abdur-Rahim has had quite the weekend with the NJ Playaz on the EYBL circuit. In game number one on Saturday, Abdur-Rahim dropped 41 points along with 12 rebounds.

In his second game, he didn’t disappoint, he dropped 45 points giving him a total of 86 points on Saturday.

Last night, Villanova’s Jay Wright and his staff extended an offer to Jabri, here’s what he said on that Villanova offer:

“They just offered me which was very nice. It’s a great program with great coaches,” said Abdur-Rahim.

Among the other programs that saw Abdur-Rahim yesterday, was Michigan. John Beilein saw him twice this weekend, here’s what he said about the UM program.

“Michigan has been on me pretty hard from the jump. I have a good relationship with the staff and I really like Coach Beilein.”

Actively this season, Georgetown’s Pat Ewing saw Abdur-Rahim several times, also saw him this weekend. Here’s what he said on the Hoyas:

“Georgetown has been on me real hard, I like them a lot. Coach Ewing is really cool and we have a nice relationship.”

The last program he went in-depth on is Kansas:

“I visited them last year, liked what I saw. I have a good relationship with the staff. They saw me twice this weekend.”

Recently, Kennesaw State hires Abdur-Rahim’s uncle, Amir. Former assistant at Georgia, that brought a lot of people thinking that Jabri was a UGA lock. That was never the case, and definitely isn’t now.

“More schools are starting to reach out daily because my uncle left Georgia so i’ve just been taking my time with it and not rushing anything.”

He listed more schools that have reached out recently:

“Arizona State, UConn, Wake Forest, Marquette, NC State, Vanderbilt, Memphis, others, have reached out recently.”
