    UPDATE 7/9/19: Jabri Abdur-Rahim will announce his college choice on Wednesday following a recent official visit to Virginia.

    By ADAM ZAGORIA

    Jabri Abdur-Rahim, the 6-foot-7 wing from Blair (N.J.) Academy, took his first official visit to Virginia this past weekend and enjoyed it.

    “I really enjoyed myself,” he said. “They made it clear I was a priority.”

    Virginia is one of five schools prioritizing Abdur-Rahim, along with UConn, Michigan, Notre Dame and Louisville.

    “Coach [Tony] Bennett has been on me pretty hard throughout this whole process,” he said last week at Blair.

    He may visit some other schools this summer.

    “Since I won’t be playing in Peach Jam I plan to work out this summer and attend some of the camps I’m invited to,” he said.

    Abdur-Rahim, the son of of former NBA standout and current G League President Shareef Abdur-Rahim, previously said he has no timetable on a decision. “I don’t have one,” he said. “Obviously, it’s a really big decision so I’m going to take my time with this one.”
