Abdulsamad Zaid Commits to Weber State

According to Rivals, combo JUCO guard Abdulsamad Zaid has committed to Weber State. Zaid is a 6'2'', 210 poind guard who played at Barstow Community College in Barstow, CA.

This year he averaged 17.4 PPG for Barstow, shooting 46% from the field and 35% from beyond the arc. He also averaged a little under four rebounds, 3 assists, and one steal per contest.

He should add nice depth for Weber State, who figure to start Gelaun Wheelwright and Scott Bamforth in the backcourt (assuming Damian Lillard enters the draft), especially if they decide to redshirt Mike Brown, which I have heard is a possibility. As a junior, he should be ready to step in and give them quality minutes right away.

In the video, he is #1 for yellow. He looks to possess a nice outside shot (as evidence by the shooting percentage), as well as good quickness and athleticism going to the basket.
