Height: 6′-9″

Weight: 195

Position: PF

High School (State): Wilbraham & Monson (MA)

Club Team (Affiliation): Mass Rivals (adidas)

Commitment: Kentucky Wildcats

Our Take: The darling of the grassroots circuit in the summer of 2016, no player shot up the charts like Gabriel did. After a hot and heavy recruitment from a who’s who list of college basketball programs, Gabriel parlayed his rise with a verbal commitment to Kentucky. Gabriel reportedly spent time on the perimeter in high school before a growth spurt shot him up to 6′-9″. He retained wing skills to go with his athleticism and size, making him an intriguing mix of skill in a tall frame.
