Kale Abrahamson had plans to cut his list in the coming weeks. Instead, the 6-foot-7 wing decided to end his recruitment.

"I picked Northwestern because it fit everything about me," Abrahamson said. "Academically, socially and athletically, I feel like i have a chance to have a great experience."

He chose the Wildcats over Iowa, Stanford, Nebraska, Harvard and Creighton.

"It was just a combination of all the factors I was looking for," Abrahamson said. 

Abrahamson is Northwestern’s second commitment in the past week, as Minnesota guard Sanjay Lumpkin announced his pledge on Friday. The two join Alex Olah in the Wildcats’ 2012 class.

More on Recruiting

Abrahamson is a very good shooter who has deep range and can get hot from the perimeter. His size enables him to be a matchup problem for smaller wings, and he knows how to use his body when it comes to finishing at the rim.
