Three offers for 2020 New Jersey SF Jabri Abdur-Rahim

New Jersey small forward Jabri Abdur-Rahim was a standout last fall at the USA Basketball Development Camp. The 2020 prospect showed why he already has some early offers again this weekend at the UnderArmour Association in New York City.

An early name on the 2020 national radar is Jabri Abdur-Rahim, the son of former NBA All-Star Shareef Abdur-Rahim.

The 6-foot-6, 180-pound small forward from West Orange (N.J.) Seton Hall Prep is a versatile athlete who plays hard and has a strong feel.

“I think I’m getting better,” Abdur-Rahim said. “I’m getting better on the defensive end and I’m getting stronger too. I’m playing with a lot of energy right now. My shot has gotten better and I’m a better rebounder.”

So far, Abdur-Rahim has picked up offers from Florida, Rutgers and Texas A&M, all three of which he’s already pretty familiar with.

The rising sophomore broke down what he likes about each program.

Florida: “I like the way they play, especially coming off a Final Four appearance. I love the energy they have and I like all the coaches. I also heard it’s a beautiful campus.”

Rutgers: “That’s the hometown and it would be nice to stay home. Coach (Steve) Pikiell is a great dude and all the assistant coaches are cool.”

Texas A&M: “I have a great relationship with the coaching staff. I’ve been down there a couple times and it’s really nice.”

It’s early into Abdur-Rahim’s recruitment and he’s more worried about his game than anything else at this point.

“It’s nice to receive the attention I have for my hard work but I’m not too worried about that stuff right now,” he said.
