Kazembe Abif, a 6-foot-7, 210-pound power forward who competed at University High School in Newark, New Jersey last season, is preparing himself to be division one college ready by next Fall.

Abif, who has signed his letter of college intent, according to his AAU head coach, Matt Pauls of Team NJABC, possesses speed and quickness for his size, making him an attractive player.

WHAT TEAM NJABC HEAD COACH MATT PAULS SAID ABOUT KAZEMBE ABIF:

"He signed with Drexel," said Pauls, who saw Abif make great progress in his individual game over the past two seasons.

"He'll be a fine college player for Drexel," said Pauls. "He works very hard and is very quick for his size."

"He has a tremendous motor," Pauls said. "He plays hard every possession."

A senior prospect, he competed for Pauls' highly regarded Team NJABC AAU program in some of the best tournaments and events this past summer and spring.

"He attacks the rim," stated Pauls. "He's very physical on the boards making him a tremendous rebounder."

Abif is competing for The Lawrenceville School this season.
