    Oh snap:

    Abu to Visit Florida, Terrell Rhody Before Announcement
    September 2nd, 2013 11:28 am
    Abdul Malik Abu and Jared Terrell are set to announce their college decisions on Saturday outside Boston.

    But before they do, each will take one more visit.

    The 6-foot-8 Abu will take an official visit to Florida beginning Tuesday, as reported by Adam Finkelstein.

    The 6-3 Terrell will trip to Rhode Island for an official on Tuesday as well.

    Abu had last visited UConn, and is also considering Providence and N.C. State.

    Terrell is also considering Providence, Cincinnati and Oklahoma State.

    Abu came to UF a short time ago for a relatively short unofficial visit. This was to be an official visit. We shall see what he ultimately does.

    possible connection RT @tcf_15: UConn just offered Bonzie Colson today. You think that's an indication of how they feel with Abu (not good)?

    Jeff Borzello said on 8/23 that Abu was down to NC State or Florida but his pick is UF as of right now.

    a lot of people thought during the process that Abu and Terrel were a package deal but that does not look to be the case

    @Matt_Lee26 Think NC State is the main competition w Florida for Abdul Malik Abu. Legit dark horse. Just see them as 2nd at this

    Jerry Meyer ‏@jerrymeyer247 3m
    @ChadTesh A lot of people, including me, see NC State as a strong contender for Abdul Malik Abu. Just not anyone's 1st pick on

    His AAU coach is trying to steer him to NC State. He and his parents want UF, but it can be difficult for those preferences to win out. The fact that he canceled his trip to UF may indicate that the AAU coach is getting his way.

    I hope not. He'd be great for us and we'd be great for him. Billy is excellent at developing big men, and Abu would get lots of PT on a top 10 team. NC State can't offer any of that.

    I don't see how difficult it would be for the kid's preference to win out, especially if his parents want the same thing.

    You would think so, wouldn't you. Don't understand how an AAU guy can override the parents and I can guarantee you it wouldn't happen in my house.

    Parents and kid both want UF? Then **** the AAU guy, that's not how the world should work.

    Stop the planet, I want to get off.

    We will know when we know. Until then, all is mere speculation.
