DETROIT, April 20 (UPI) -- Pennsylvania basketball phenom Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman announced his commitment to play for University of Michigan on Saturday.

The Allentown (Pa.) Central Catholic High School guard made the announcement while visiting the school this weekend.

"They're all good guys at Michigan and I couldn't be happier," the teen's father, Dawub Abdur-Rahkman, said. "They seem to really care about the players as people and not just guys on the court."

"I just think the way Beilein coaches and the way Michigan plays will be right for Muhammad," said Central Catholic coach Dennis Csensits. "Muhammad is a throwback in that he's just a guard. He's not really a point guard and he's not really a two guard; he's just a guard. And if you watch Michigan play, they run a lot of two guard type stuff with guys with very similar skill sets to Muhammad.

"So when he started taking a look at Muhammad, I think [Beilein] saw someone who would be a good fit for how they play."

With Muhammad, Central Catholic High School won four-consecutive District 11 Class 3A titles. He averaged 23.6 points, 4.1 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game.
