Rabb looking at options

Ivan Rabb may be the best player in 2015 and is being recruited as such. Read on for his thoughts on his game, recruitment, and more.

Oakland Bishop O'Dowd forward Ivan Rabb is making the case to be the best player in the class of 2015 and much of it has to do with the improvements he has made in his game since the summer.

"So far in the season I have been scoring and rebounding a lot," Rabb said. "I am trying to expand by game little by little and continue to do what I do best, which is rebound and score. I am also working on bringing the ball up court and making decisions."

Rabb would know the biggest difference in his game better than anyone and the five-star says that it starts with his confidence.

"I feel like I am more confident," Rabb said. "I try to get more confident every year and stronger every year. I am becoming more of a team player and my I.Q. is going through the roof because people tell me I make the game look simple.

"That's what I try to do because when I do that, everyone wants to play with you and you aren't trying to do too much, so that's good."

As is natural with the best players in the country, Rabb is hearing from basically everyone. Due to that fact, he has made the decision to narrow things down a bit.

"Recruiting is going well," he said. "I have recently cut my list, but I have not put it out yet because I am making some minor adjustments. Right now it is narrowed to 13, but I want to narrow it to ten. I am not just going to cut people off though, I want to take my time and look at my options.

"It was starting to get too hectic so the schools that were contacting me that I wasn't too interested in, I had to separate myself from. They were calling me late at night and things like that, so that wasn't too cool. I took my time with it, but I wanted to make the decision for me and my family and teammates."

When Rabb sat down to cut his list, he knew exactly what he was looking at.

"They are all schools I think will develop me," he said. "It is about winning, but I want to keep getting better just in case I do have a chance to go to the pros. If I don't, I want to make sure I have a good education so I can study for real estate development, because that is something I want to do."
