Rabb looking at Arizona

2015 forward Ivan Rabb had one of the most impressive performance of the Lebron James Skills Academy. Read on for an update on his recruitment, including how he will decide, his thoughts on Arizona, and more.

Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd forward Ivan Rabb was already highly regarded going into the LeBron James Skills Academy.

A Monday performance against elite prospect Diamond Stone helped Rabb grab even more attention and if he was not recognized as one of the best prospects in the country before, he definitely needs to be now.

Arizona was the first school to look at Rabb's talent and believe it was worth offering, as Cal also recently got involved with an offer.

"Cal offered me last week and that is a big deal because it is close to home," Rabb said, "My grandfather loves Cal and talks about it, but I have not decided if I want to leave home yet. I know all about Cal because I have been following it for a long time, but I would not call it a favorite."

In fact, Rabb would not call any school a favorite, but admits that he is impressed with the fact that Arizona was his first offer and the opportunity it presents.

"Arizona was my first offer and it was a big one," Rabb said. "I know Brandon Ashley is going there and likes it. I also like the way Arizona runs their offense and how they tell me I would be able to do a lot of things for them."

Rabb is bound to get more offers and while he still is not too sure what the deciding factor in his recruitment is going to be, he does have a decent idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"I want to make sure that I fit in well with the style of play," Rabb said. "I also want to be able to get along with the coaches and know that they care about me and want to help me succeed."

Rabb does not have a specific timeline for when he would like to make his college decision, but it sounds as if he will avoid dragging it out if he can.

"I don't have a specific date or anything like that, but I am not afraid to decide once I have found the school I like," he said. "If I like a school and feel that I can do well there and want to go there, that is where I will choose."
