Qudus Wahab, a class of 2019 center at Flint Hill, broke out on the Under Armour circuit while playing with We R1 this summer. The 6-foot-11 rising senior consistently demonstrated high level shot blocking and altering abilities to go along with a tireless motor and a steadily improving offensive skill set. Wahab has seen his recruitment expand as a result. LSU, Ohio State, Georgetown and Miami are among a handful of high majors who he’s received offers from since June. During a recent interview with Prep Hoops, Wahab hinted that he will soon reveal a list with his current top 12 schools.
