On Saturday, Michigan Basketball picked up a commitment from Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman (Allentown, Pennsylvania). He becomes the fifth member of the Wolverines 2014 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-4, 180 pound Abdur-Rahkman, averaged 23.6 points, 4.1 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game as a senior. A four-time All-State selection, Abdur-Rahkman set a school record with 2,136 career points at Central Catholic High School.
Abdur-Rahkman is known as a dribble-drive type of player who is not a consistent threat from three point range. Here’s an excerpt of his scouting report on espn;
He’s extremely versatile with the size and length to offer minutes at any of the three perimeter positions, and is a match-up problem virtually anywhere on the court…He has a very intriguing combination of size, length, quickness, and smooth handle but he’s going to have to continue to get more skilled on the perimeter in order for his game to translate as well to the college level.
Although he was a prolific scorer in high school, Abdur-Rahkman is renowned as an unselfish, team first player. He’s just a very humble kid,” his high school coach Dennis Csensits told The Morning Call. “It was never about him. It was always about the team. He was always unselfish and understood the value of team.
