Huguenot finished this past season with a 16-5 record, thanks in part to the strong play of Kabir Shabazz.
Now, his friends and family will not have to travel far to watch him continue his career. He will play at Virginia State University.
The 6-6 senior forward finished his career on a high note, averaging 15 points, 10 rebounds, 5 blocks, and 2 steals per game. He dominated the opposition from anywhere on the floor offensively, and was just as strong in on-ball defense and rim protection for the Falcons. His coaches heaped praises on him for his skill, work ethic, and personality.
“He has a great personality and desire to be a great ball player,” said Coach Bo Jones Sr. “He will be a great college player.”
The first team All-Conference forward received offers from Allen University, Southern Georgia University, and Baltimore Community College, but ultimately elected to stay close to home and commit to Virginia State University.
“I choose VSU because they showed the most interest,” explained Shabazz. “I love the atmosphere there and the coaches made me feel like I was at home on my visit. It’s very close to home, which is what I wanted.I always pictured myself at either VSU or VCU. My father was a big motivation for me. He played a big part in my decision and helped me along the way.”
With his recruitment out the way, the Huguenot senior can return his focus to improving his overall game. There is no doubt that the Trojans are getting someone who will show up everyday ready ti lead and compete.
