Douglass (MD) 6-foot-8 forward Abdou Samb now has four offers after Towson reached out to offer him a scholarship,
Towson joins Stony Brook, Mount St. Mary’s and Southeastern Louisiana as the programs that have offered so far.
“The relationship is pretty good,” he said of Towson. “They got a really good staff and the school is not that far from me.”
George Washington, Rhode Island and East Tennessee State are also showing interest.
The stock on Samb is increasing. More college coaches are getting involved and giving him the opportunity to play basketball in college for free.
“Definitely feels good to know that I can go to college for free,” he said. “That will definitely make my mom and my family happy. It’s a good experience for me.”
Samb is a player that likes to be aggressive in the paint and moves fluidly down low. Coaches like his versatility on offense but also his defensive effort as well.
“Coaches like that I can be aggressive in the paint and sometime pull out and hit the jump shot,” he said. “Or, sometime I can take my man, run the floor and they like my defensive effort and energy that I put into the game.”
Samb recently had a zoom call with Mount Saint Mary’s, and could potentially have more in the future. He’s staying open in the process and doesn’t plan on narrowing down anytime soon.
“I’m still open and still listening to schools,” Samb explained. “I want to make sure me, my mom and my coaches make the right decision for me.”
