Nate Lubick Returns from Unofficial Visit

For a player only a year into his high school career Nate Lubick has quite an impressive list of schools that are showing interest.  Virginia, Michigan, Duke, Georgetown, UCLA, Marquette, Notre Dame, Stanford, Northwestern, and URI are just some of the schools that are making an early push for the talented forward. 

In fact Lubick is just returning from a visit to the Michigan campus.

“The campus is immense and a bit overwhelming, but still unbelievable,” he said.  “And the coaches are excellent.  I spent a lot of time with Coach Beilein and he’s a one of a kind guy.  He told me before I left that I was absolutely 100% his top priority for 2010, so that was pretty nice.”   

Unfortunately Beilein, as well as the numerous other coaches who were planning to watch Lubick play at the beginning of the live period, will have to wait a little longer.  After suffering an injury to his hip flexer he will be out of action when his New England Playaz team travels to Cincinnati for the Adidas It Take Five Championships this weekend.  He is expected to be back in the lineup later next week at the Naismith Hall of Fame National Invitational. 

Ultimately the injury should have no effect on his recruiting status as he has already developed a reputation as an exceptionally skilled player who is also an impressive athlete. 

Next season those skills will again be on display at St. Mark’s School, where Lubick will again team with 6’9 rising junior Erik Murphy to form one of the most lethal frontcourt duos in the country, all while playing for his father Dave Lubick who is the head coach at St. Mark’s. 

That means one stop shopping for a lot of high major programs.  One school in particular has been hot of the tail of both players. 

“Duke is pretty interested,” Lubick said.  “They want to get me out there.  But that won’t happen until next summer.”
