The Wolf Pack basketball team was busy at work on Thursday night when Nevada received a verbal commitment from Trevon Abdullah for their 2017 recruiting class. The story was first reported by Chris Murray of the Reno Gazette Journal. Here is Abdullah tweet announcing his commitment to Nevada.
Abdullah is a six-foot-five, 210-pound small forward from Las Vegas, Nevada who received offers from Fresno State, Colorado State and Utah State before tweeting his commitment to the Wolf Pack on Thursday night. Abdullah, who is a junior at Desert Pines High in Las Vegas, is listed as a three star small forward and is listed by ESPN as the 34th best small forward prospect in the nation. In his sophomore year at Desert Pines, Abdullah averaged 12 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. Here is some highlights of Abdullah at Desert Pines.
The ESPN write up of Abdullah describes him as "a chiseled wing-type with long arms, strong hands and budding skills. He is a beast in transition (explosive athlete) where he uses his strength and athleticism to bully his way to the rim." Even though Abdullah will not be on campus until 2017, the commitment is a crucial for Wolf Pack head coach Eric Musselman as he looks to stock the Wolf Pack roster with talented players to fit his scheme and so far Musselman has done a good job bringing in the talent to Reno.
