The summer is rolling by, and we are looking to highlight a few players that we think can help a program at different levels, especially if programs are looking for any late steals here in North Carolina.

Size is size; it is something that you simply can’t teach, and programs are always looking for prospects that can bring height to the table. 2024 7’0 Ebrima Jabbi brings that for sure at his position, but he is also one who has made considerable development in his game. Early on, he was just getting an understanding of the game with Combine, but he has put in the work and has added more to his game along with continuing to be a presence offensively around the basket, a strong impact on the boards, and one that can help control the paint. This is why we believe there is a place for Jabbi to continue playing and help a program in the future.

See what we have said in the past about his game.

What Has Been Said:

“Folks should expect Jabbi to play a considerable role for the Goats this season. His presence as a tough, mobile, high-motor big man immediately bolsters their ceiling as a group. Jabbi simply knows how to play hard and impact the game without necessarily requiring offensive touches. Sure, he’s a capable finisher around the basket, but he’s able to make his presence consistently felt as a rebounder, rim-protector, and lob threat in transition. Jabbi fights for position on the glass, makes hustle plays, and blocks shots at a healthy rate defensively. He knows his role and doesn’t look to force the action or play outside of his strengths on the court. Jabbi should appeal to a variety of college coaches, as it’s rare to see an under-the-radar big man with his blend of size, instincts, and low-maintenance identity. Expect him to be a difference-maker over the coming months.”

“Players with his size don’t just pop out of nowhere and though he is a player that is still learning and understanding the game, he brings tremendous size, a strong motor, and a willingness to battle and compete around the basket. Time after time he has been able to record strong double-double performances, being active on the glass and finishing around the basket. But he continues to develop and add more, as his years ahead of him could be his best.”
