Rabb seeing recruitment pick up

Ivan Rabb is one of the top players in 2015 and is now getting recruited as such. Read on to see how he views his recruitment, his thoughts on Arizona, and more.

The Oakland Soldiers have supplied Arizona with tnumerous players over the past few years, and they have a few others that the Wildcats would like to play in Tucson. The youngest of which is 2015 power forward Ivan Rabb.

Rabb is only fifteen years old, but he already has two scholarship offers. Arizona and California jumped on the chance to enter his recruitment early and he has also heard from a few other big name schools.

"I have offers from Arizona and Cal," Rabb said. "I'm also hearing that Texas may be close. I like Texas, but I really like all three."

Rabb has been playing with the 17 year-old Soldiers team and is having fun learning from the older players.

"It's real fun playing with these guys because they give me little tips that help me improve every game," he said. "I have a lot of fun and it's pretty intense."

Rabb has also discovered that in order to succeed at a higher level, he has to develop as a player and get stronger.

"It's a lot harder playing with these guys," Rabb said. "When I was playing with the younger team, I would get the ball in the post way more often. Now, I don't get it in the post as much and I just try to be as aggressive as I can on offensive rebounds. I really just need to get stronger.

"If I can get that done, hopefully I can come back next summer with a bang and have the best game around."

Arizona was the first to offer Rabb and he admits that the Wildcats have been recruiting him the hardest. It has even led to a possible unofficial visit later.

"I'm going to go down there for a visit, but I don't have an exact date yet," he said. "They want me to come down for the Red-Blue scrimmage and watch Brandon (Ashley). They think I can play that position there."

Does Arizona being the first to offer have an effect on Rabb's thinking?

"Absolutely," he said. "They are coming after me the hardest and I really like Arizona, so you never know. I'm not sure when I'm going to commit, but I'm sure they will be right there.

"It means a lot for them to be the first school to offer because I wasn't really expecting it. I was just going out and playing hard. They offered me and it was big."
