The definition of star power is Blair Academy standout Jabri Abdur-Rahim. His father, Shareef, played 12 seasons in the NBA. Now he can watch his son rise to the top of New Jersey basketball.
Abdur-Rahim is ranked as the No. 1 player in the state and No. 32 in ESPN’s Top 100 players. The four-star recruit chose to play his college ball at Virginia over some other big names such as Michigan State, Kansas, Florida, and Michigan. As a junior, he averaged 15.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Abdur-Rahim’s accomplishments earned him the 2018-2019 Gatorade New Jersey Boys Basketball Player of the Year. As a senior he will have a chance to join Jahvon Quinerly, Karl Anthony-Towns, and Tim Thomas as two-time winners of the award.
