Offers Are In For Webster-Chan

Top 75 prospect Negus Webster-Chan has college interest rolling in. He now holds five scholarship offers.

Negus Webster-Chan has been a mystery for many.

The 6-foot-7 wing prospect emerged in the spring, but didn't get a lot of exposure in the summer due to playing for Canada in the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship in Germany.

Now, a junior at Huntington (W.V.) Prep, Webster-Chan is hitting the weight room, developing his jump shot and picking up interest from college programs.

"When he's playing well and aggressive he could potentially be a pro," he said. "But sometimes he goes through the motions a little bit. He's getting stronger and a lot bigger. He's put on 17 or 18 pounds."

Webster-Chan's skill set is quite impressive for a guy his size and according to Fulford, he'll spend some time on the ball this season.

"He's a skill guy," Fulford said. "He's 6'7. He can shooter. He can dribble. He's comfortable with the ball in his hands. He can come off screens and he likes to play with the ball in his hands. We can use him at the point."

To date, Webster-Chan has scholarship offers from Marquette, UNLV, Iowa State, Cincinnati and Oklahoma State. Washington, Clemson, West Virginia, Louisville and Kentucky are also involved.

"I think he'll wait," Fulford said when asked if the 2012 prospect would make a college choice soon. "He may do it after the spring AAU season."

Webster-Chan, a four-star prospect, has taken a pair of unofficial visits. He took a trip to Kentucky and visited West Virginia for their midnight madness festivities.
