Two days before National Signing Day, Mark Stoops has found a diamond in the rough. After officially visiting Lexington this weekend, Abule Abadi-Fitzgerald has committed to Kentucky.
Abadi-Fitzgerald is unranked by many major scouting services. At 6’7″ 245-pounds, he’s a raw talent that received a ton of attention over the last week, drawing late offers from Florida and Miami. Luckily, Stoops’ staff recognized his potential early. He’s extremely athletic for his size, an 1,000-point scorer on the basketball team, but without much experience in football, Abadi-Fitzgerald’s ceiling is through the roof.
Enjoy these highlights from his senior season.
The 24th commitment in Stoops’ 2017 class will be considered quite the steal in years to come.
