The Northwestern Wildcats have offered two 2014 Expressions Elite big men in Abdul Malik-Abu and Alec Brennan, per a tweet from Coast2Coast Hoops.
Alec Brennan is a two-star power forward from Milton Academy in Milton, Massachusetts who has received offers from Iowa State, Boston, Brown, Duquesne, Maryland, Rhode Island, Rutgers, Seton Hall, Yale, Massachusetts, St. Joseph’s, Providence, Delaware, and Temple.
The fifth best recruit in the state of Massachusetts, Brennan is a 6’10″, 235 pound 2014 PF who is also one of the best 50 power forwards in the nation and a top 40 recruit in the northeast. He is known for his size and length, and Brennan is regarded by scouts as a player with a high amount of upside. He has a great jumper with good range, and he has arguably the best upside of any 2014 big and is a good offer for the Northwestern Wildcats.
Meanwhile, four-star Kimball Union Academy standout Abdul-Malik Abu is one of the top 75 recruits in the nation and is a 6’7″, 233 pound monster. Abu is the third best recruit in the state of Massachusetts, as well as one of the top 15 recruits in both the region and among power forwards in the 2014 class.
Abdul-Malik Abu has received offers from Cincinnati, Boston College, Iowa State, Michigan State, Connecticut, Rutgers, Providence, Rhode Island, and Miami. West Virginia, Seton Hall, St. Bonaventure, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, and Massachusetts have also shown interest in the top PF.
The Meriden, New Hampshire recruit still needs to work on his shooting and is a poor ball-handler, but Abdul-Malik Abu has solid strength and is one of the best rebounders in the country. He is physical freak with a high motor and is probably the strongest recruit in the northeast. He is an imposing power forward who is a classic banger and loves doing the dirty work on the inside by crashing the boards. He’s an excellent addition to any team in the 2014 class, especially for a team in the Big Ten like Northwestern that needs a top rebounding big to compete with the usually plentiful talent of tough bigs in the conference.
