Pacific Hills' Ryan Abrahams
Signs With LMU--(May 27, 1999)
We don't know how we missed this one, but evidently we did: Ryan Abrahams (6'-3" Sr. SG) from Pacific Hills has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball next year at Loyola Marymount University.
We got a letter from one of Ryan's teammates at PH, Gary White, who actually did all the legwork for us by confirming the signing and providing details and even some nice quotes. We called LMU and verified it, so we know it's a fact. And while Gary also sent us this HUGE file with a bunch of pictures in it to use with the story, most of them were just way too large for web use. But there's one we can use, and it's below. Here's Gary's piece on the signing:
Ryan Abrahams, a two-time All-State player from Pacific Hills High School of West Hollywood, signed a national letter of intent to attend Loyola Marymount University. The 6'-3 shooting guard led the Bruins to their first State Championship in his junior year and finished his senior year by averaging 24.2 points per game. LMU assistant coach Bill Garnett was very pleased with the signing of Abrahams. "We've been scouting Ryan for over a year and he should fit into the LMU system quite well," Coach Garnett said.
Abrahams was very impressed with the Lions' program. "The recruiting process was very stressful but I am glad I signed with such a fine university," Abrahams said. "The coaches were straight forward with me and I am eager to show them that they made the right choice." Ryan, who qualified for LMU with a 1010 on his SAT, was quick to credit Pacific Hills for much of his success. "I think Pacific Hills definitely prepared me for the collegiate level. I had some of the finest teachers and Coach Bobich not only helped me develop my game but truly cares for me as an individual," Abrahams said.
Ryan also gave special credit to his parents for their support. "I can't thank my parents enough for being there for me. They always gave me that extra push when things got tough," he said. Ryan's high school career was an impressive one. To go along with his All-State honors, Ryan was selected to the All-CIF first team in both his junior and senior years.
Pacific Hills coach John Bobich praised his senior guard for his many achievements. "Ryan is a real winner," Bobich said. "He had countless number of game-winning shots for us. He's truly going to be missed around here."
