If Abif has a solid spring and summer of AAU action, it's likely his list will expand and he'll receive some scholarship offers.
Abif, who is expected to compete for Team NJABC and head coach Matt Pauls over the next few months at AAU tournaments, has been described by Pauls as a player "who can play above the rim against the big bodies in the paint."
In addition, he is improving his perimeter game, trying to make his offensive game more versatile. "He uses his frame nicely near the rim, grabbing rebounds and being a factor defensively," Pauls said.
Pauls added: "Schools from the MAAC to the Atlantic 10 are showing interest."
Abif is also a terrific student, allowing more windows of opportunity for him down the road if he wishes to go this academic path.
Ivy and Patriot League schools are monitoring his progress.
Pauls concluded: "He is a great finisher near the basket. He can finish with thunderous dunks too."
