It's official, ALex Abreu aka The Little Point From Puerto Rico has decided to attend the University of Akron. He select Akron over Utah and Nebraska both of whom made late pushes to try and sign him. Abreu follows the path that Puerto Rico greats JJ Barea and Carlos Arroyo took selecting a "mid major" over a "major".
Abreu made a name for himself last summer while playing on the 19U PR team and went up to Jersey and took control of his own destiny by showing up big against players who had big reps! His willingness to go to prep school and the sacrifice his family made is an example of the sacrifice it takes to get it done! Hats off to Ada and family for trusting PR Playmakers and the commitment they made to them that if Alex went to prep school he would secure a scholarship.
