Michigan lands 2014 commitment from guard Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman

Michigan had a couple of extra scholarships to fill this offseason following the 2014 NBA Draft departures of sophomores Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III and the transfer of junior forward Jon Horford.

Head coach John Beilein has opted to fill one of those scholarships this spring, and on Saturday, 2014 guard Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman committed to the Wolverines, according to his Twitter. Abdur-Rahkman was offered a scholarship this weekend while on an official visit to the Ann Arbor campus.

A 6-foot-4 native of Allentown, Pennsylvania, Abdur-Rahkman was a four-time all-state selection and broke the Central Catholic High School career scoring record with 2,136 career points. Abdur-Rahkman averaged 23.6 points, 4.1 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game as a senior.

Abdur-Rahkman joins Portland native and wing Kameron Chatman, Sacramento native and forward D.J. Wilson, Florida native and center Ricky Doyle and wing Austin Hatch in Michigan’s 2014 recruiting class.

    Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman played at Central Catholic High School???? Right on then. (scratches head, shrugs shoulders, and then goes along his way)

    Yeah. They should’ve not let him play, based off a “non catholic” name right?

    Never said that. Just seemed interesting that’s all. Calm down buddy, this isn’t some sort of a rally.

    I’m not really for crazy creative names, but muslims need to add a few more names to their list. I also thought it was funny that he went to Catholic school. Just shows that Catholic schools recruit.
