Malik Abdullahi: Why I Chose Princeton

As a kid, playing college basketball has always been a dream of mine.

Being able to be in this position to fulfill my dream is more than a blessing. This decision was one of the hardest decisions in my life. I was blessed to have received offers from numerous schools. But I felt that Princeton was home and was best for me.

I chose Princeton because of the amazing coaching staff that prioritizes school and basketball. They know what it takes to develop players into pros. At the same time, Princeton is one of the top academic schools in the nation.

With that being said, a degree from Princeton will never be taken away from me. Having something like that I can fall back on, and enter a new chapter in my life after college and basketball was a big factor in my decision. The opportunities in the future are unlimited.

That’s just something I couldn’t take for granted.
