Earlier in the week, West Virginia and head coach Bob Huggins became the latest school to offer 2014 power forward Abdul-Malik Abu.
With the recent addition, Abu now boasts scholarship offers from 11 different schools.
When asked, he listed the following: Michigan State, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Rutgers, Temple, West Virginia, Maryland, Boston College, Providence, Seton Hall, and URI.
Abu’s vast variety of offers ranges from a number of high-major conferences, yet also includes a number of area schools that continue to follow the Massachusetts-native.
The 6-foot-8 forward currently attends Kimball Union Academy (NH) and is looking forward to another successful season on the prep level. “We’re looking forward to winning the prep school championship this year,” Abu said.
From Brewster to New Hampton to Tilton, the prep schools in New Hampshire have been very good in producing a number of talented players. Kimball Union’s Abu fits that mold exceptionally well, and as his list of offers continues to grow, there is no doubt of future potential that he continues to improve on.
As the month of August kicks in, Abu looked back this past summer, saying, “I think I took advantage of my athleticism and versatility on the court, doing a good amount of everything. I improved on my consistency and leadership along with my ability to be more effective on the perimeter.”
Abu currently runs with Expressions Elite on the AAU circuit. He is a native of Boston, Mass.
