    Jabri Abdur-Rahim, the 6-foot-5 small forward from Blair (NJ) Academy, told ZAGSBLOG Monday that Villanova, Miami, Michigan, Georgia, and Louisville as the five schools working the hardest for his recruitment. He broke down each school:

    Villanova: “Villanova has been involved since my freshman year. I like Coach [Jay] Wright. We talk pretty regularly.”

    Michigan: “I like the program at Michigan. Coach [Saddi] Washington and I have a pretty good relationship.  Coach [John] Beilein and I talk often.”

    Georgia: “They have been on me ever since the summer started. My uncle [Amir Abdur-Rahim] is one of the coaches there. Tom Crean and I have a nice relationship.”

    Miami: “I like the program at Miami. Coach [Jim Larrañaga] and I have talked. They’ve definitely expressed their interest in me.”

    Louisville: “The rebuild. They should have have talented team for years to come. I like the coaching staff as well.”

    Abdur-Rahim recently received an offer from Maryland.

    “I like the staff,” he said on the Terrapins. “They just started recruiting me, so I’m interested to learn more about the program.”

    Abdur-Rahim also said he is looking to take visits to Villanova, Michigan, Georgia, UConn, and Kansas.

    “I’m waiting to get into the flow of high school season to start taking visits,” said Abdur-Rahim.

    He broke down what he likes about both Kansas and UConn.

    Kansas: “The culture and the tradition. I visited before and I like it.”

    UConn: “They haven’t expressed much interest, but I like the new staff and the rebuild they’re trying to do.”

    Abdur-Rahim took an unofficial visit to Kansas last year for Late Night in the Phog (Sept. 29, 2017).

    UConn has not offered Abdur-Rahim. According to 247Sports, he is ranked as the No. 39 overall player in the Class of 2020 and the No. 1 player from the state of New Jersey.
