Maryland made an early impression on Abu when he took a visit there but he's also been to many other places, including Connecticut as well as dropping by Boston College to watch a game against Providence. Others such as Kansas, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Michigan State, Temple, Seton Hall, Rutgers and many more have either offered or expressed interest and he'll have to cut things down before he can focus in on favorites.
Enechionyia already has offers on the table from Maryland, Temple, Xavier, UMass, Indiana, Villanova, George Mason, George Washington and Virginia Commonwealth.

A two-time all-state pick, Walker-Kimbrough popped in 25 points last Thursday to bounce over 2,000 points in her stellar career. According to Eddy Montalvo's report in the Post-Gazette, the Maryland recruit became the 37th Pittsburgh-area hoops star to hit the milestone.
To Harrison, now a 6-foot-1 senior All-Metro forward-guard with more than 1,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds, accepting Frese's scholarship offer did not mark the culmination of her hard work. It was just the beginning.
Burkett's versatility makes him an attractive recruit. Standing 6'4 and weighing 230 pounds, Burkett could play linebacker or defensive end at the next level.
Hayward, a senior forward, averaged 13.6 points, 11.6 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in three Indian wins over Snow Hill, Parkside, and James M. Bennett. Hayward’s week was punctuated by a 21 point, 18 rebound performance against cross-town rival Parkside in Wi-Hi’s 68-64 win.
