Virginia lands top-30 recruit Abdur-Rahim

ESPN top-30 recruit Jabri Abdur-Rahim has committed to Virginia, he announced on social media Wednesday.

Abdur-Rahim, the son of G League president and former NBA All-Star Shareef Abdur-Rahim, received interest from a number of high-profile schools - including Arizona and Michigan.

"I'm going to Virginia and I chose them because I feel most comfortable with the staff and I felt they'd best prepare to win on the college level and achieve my ultimate goal of playing in the NBA," Abdur-Rahim told 247 Sports' Evan Daniels.

The 6-foot-6 wing has been tearing it up on the Nike EYBL circuit, averaging a team-high 25.2 points and eight boards across 13 appearances for the Playaz Club.

Abdur-Rahim joins four-star recruits Reece Beekman and Carson McCorkle in an already impressive 2020 recruiting class for coach Tony Bennett's Cavaliers.

"How comfortable my family and I felt there, it just seemed like somewhere I could see myself succeeding," Abdur-Rahim told ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

Abdur-Rahim is the highest-ranked prospect to commit to Virginia since Kyle Guy, who was drafted in the second round of this year's NBA draft.
