Chris Mullin received a verbal commitment from junior college player Bashir Ahmed for Christmas.
Mullin’s current team struggled with losses before the holiday break, but his staff locked up the 6-foot-7 Ahmed as a sign of progress. Ahmed joined Thomas Jefferson standout Shamorie Ponds in the 2016 recruiting class.
Ahmed plays for Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College as a small forward, but he is a Bronx native who played at John F. Kennedy High School previously.
