Four-star small forward Jabri Abdur-Rahim, the son of former NBA star, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, announced his college commitment moments ago.
The Blairstown (N.J.) Blair Academy standout has committed to Virginia two weeks after taking an official visit to the defending national champions. The Cavaliers offered Abdur-Rahim back in May.
The skilled 6-foot-7 prospect chose UVA over Michigan, Villanova, Illinois and others. He also had drawn interest from Kentucky.
Abdur-Rahim is the No. 44 overall prospect and No. 11 small forward in the 2020 class, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. He joins four-star point guard Reece Beekman and three-star shooting guard Carson McCorkle as Virginia commits.

As a junior, Abdur-Rahim averaged 17.7 points and 9.2 rebounds for Blair.
In 2017-18, while suiting up for Seton Hall Prep in New Jersey, he averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest.
Abdur-Rahim’s father was a No. 3 overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft. He played 12 seasons in the NBA, making one All-Star Game and winning an Olympic gold medal in 2000.
