Our 5th ranked prospect in the state of Virginia 2019 rankings, Qudus Wahab, has added lots of muscle to his body which has allowed him to add new dimensions to his game. He really impressed me with his rebounding ability on both sides of the ball at NBPA Top 100 Camp. He finished well around the rim and was able to use his size and muscle to control his defenders down low in the post. Defensively he played good defense and troubled his opposition when he was guarding them. If he keeps on adding more seize and improving like he has been, I would expect even more high major programs to get involved with his talents.
He spoke to us on what he expected to get out of the camp, “I tried to learn a lot of stuff that will help me down the road, they have talked to us about the speed of the game, I feel like I have learned a lot of stuff that will help my offense get better and I am trying to learn how to be more aggressive.”
Many schools are involved with Wahab and when asked what schools are prioritizing him, he said, “Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, VCU, Syracuse, UConn, LSU and Louisville.” He broke down some of those schools he mentioned for us below.
Pittsburgh: “I have talked to the new assistant coaches, and they want me to get up to campus soon for a visit.”
Virginia Tech: “It is a cool program, I was there in 2016 and it was very good. I have met with the head coach and some of the assistant coaches.”
VCU: “I was there for a camp last year. I have an offer from them and I want to visit again. I have talked to the head coach and assistant too.”
UConn: “They think I could come there and be very good for them. They said I could bring energy there and it is a good school. They are really interested in me.”
Syracuse: “They have a fun program. I have talked to an assistant coach and the head Coach called me like two months ago. I know they play a lot of zone.”
Louisville: “They actually talked to me before when that staff was at Xavier and they are still interested in me and they would like me to visit very soon.”
