Abu averaged 12.9 points and 8.8 rebounds this season while shooting 49% from the field.  He picked up his play in ACC play, averaging 14.2 points and 9.2 rebounds on 51% shooting from the field in 18 league games.  

The 6-foot-8, 240-pounder isn't projected to be a NBA draft pick, but he is taking advantage of the new NCAA rules that allows college players to enter the draft multiple times and be able to work out for NBA teams.  

Abu has until May 25th to remove his name from the draft list.
