Earlier in his recruitment, top 50 power forward Abdul-Malik Abu hinted that he could head south to a warmer climate for college.
While the 6-foot-8 power forward from Meriden (N.H.) Kimball Union isn't exactly headed to the tropics, the four-star is leaving the Northeast for a warmer climate.
During a joint press conference at the Reggie Lewis Center in his hometown of Boston with childhood friend and summer teammate Jared Terrell, Abu announced that he is headed to Raleigh to play for Mark Gottfried and N.C. State.
One of the most physical players in the high school ranks, Abu is tireless on the glass. While he chases rebounds all over the floor, he has to be respected as a scorer, too. A 7-foot-1 wingspan allows him to play bigger, and he's worked hard on his offensive game.
Formerly an around-the-basket power player, Abu can now step out and play pick-and-pop basketball. He's capable of slashing to the hoop with quick one- and two-dribble drives against other big men.
With Abu in the fold, State is working on a nice recruiting class. Already onboard are twins Caleb Martin and Cody Martin, who rank No. 59 and No. 106, respectively.
