CCSF's Abdullah Sabir shows his patience

City College of San Francisco was loaded with talent in its secondary this year and that might be why DB Abdullah Sabir (6-1, 200) has gone somewhat overlooked by D-1 schools. spoke with the talented defensive back and he updated us on things including which four year schools have shown him the most interest...

Sabir prepped at Berkeley High School in California but didn't get a lot of attention, so he headed to the best program he could find.

"City is the best program out there," Sabir told recently. "It was right across the bay from where I was from so it was still close to home and I felt like the coaches here were the best around."

Sabir is a talented defensive back and very versatile due to his size and speed. He played mostly at corner, but said he played some safety at time as well, posting 32 tackles.

"We play a lot of man here at City," Sabir said. "I played a lot of nickel (corner) but I played safety too. It just depended on the defensive call and the formation of the offense."

Recruiting hasn't hit full-stride yet, but he's hoping more D-1 schools take notice of his 4.5 speed and his physicality on the field.

"Iowa State is really the only D-1 school looking at me right now," Sabir said. "Stony Brook and Sacramento State are the 1AA schools that seem the closest to offering me, but I don't have any offers yet. Massachusetts has also been in contact with me."

Sabir has done well in the classroom and is able to sign this month and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
