Schools coming in for Narain

A strong start to the season has led to the recruiting process picking up for four-star power forward Nolan Narain.

Four-star power forward Nolan Narain made his first impression in the United States during the Nike Elite 100 Camp for the top underclass prospects during the month of June. Since then the native of Canada has enrolled at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere, and is off to a strong start to his junior season.

At 6-foot-8 with long arms and high level athleticism, Narain has the physical tools to dominate as a power forward, and so far the year has been going well.

“I think I have been playing well,” said Narain. “It was an adjustment getting used to the style of play and the coaching style, but the team is doing well and we are winning and that is the most important thing.”

He continued, “I have been working a lot on my outside shooting and also on attacking the basket and using counter moves since I am quicker than most people that guard me.”

Recruiting wise as one would expect, numerous schools are making Narain a priority recruit.

“I’ve been talking to Gonzaga, Miami, San Diego State, Vanderbilt, Kansas State, Illinois, Florida, and a bunch of other schools,” listed Narain.

At this point Narain hasn’t had a chance to visit many of the schools on his list, but he is hoping to do that somewhat soon.

“I’m going to start thinking about visits more after January,” said Narain. “I have already taken my ACT, so I am eligible to start taking official visits, and I am going to start thinking about them more after January.”

While at this point Narain isn’t too far into the recruiting process in terms of having a favorite, he does know what he will be looking for in a school when the time comes to make a decision.

“I’m looking for a place that fits my style of play, a coach that I feel comfortable with, and a good academic school where I can get a quality degree,” said Narain.
