Trask on Omar: "Rahim is a natural soccer player, who combines excellent technique and very good tactical awareness for a player his age. He could follow in the long line of top-level players from Minnesota who have played for the Badgers. Rahim can play centrally or wide and will be a player who really thrives in our system of development here at Wisconsin. Rahim played for the Minnesota Thunder in the academy and has been well groomed to become an excellent defender in the future."
Tiemeyer on Omar: "Rahim is a very fluid soccer player, allowing him to excel at multiple positions on the field. He usually makes the right choice with the first pass when playing as a center back or holding midfielder and provides a pass that is in rhythm and user friendly. I am looking forward to being a part of Rahim's continued development at UW."
Why Wisconsin? "I chose to attend UW because of the great academic reputation that the school has in a wide variety of subject matters and the sense of pride that many of the faculty and students have when it comes to sports and other events. Also, the coaching staff at the school is phenomenal and having the chance to learn from them and develop as a player was an opportunity that I was never going to let pass by."
