Top Two for Narain

Two schools remain at the top of the list for four-star forward Nolan Narain.

Power forward Nolan Narain had a strong high school season at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere, and now is doing the same in the spring for UPlay Canada on the adidas Gauntlet. With that new schools are in the mix, but Narain says two remain at the top.

At 6-foot-9 with long arms, nice athleticism, and a solid skill level, Narain has been a big attraction for coaches, and so far he says the spring is going well.

“The spring has been going well,” said Narain. “We have a few new teammates so we are getting adjusted there, but a lot of us have been together since sixth grade, so it has been good.”

He continued, “I have been working hard on my shooting. Also I have been working on my handle so I can drive from the perimeter.”

Recruiting wise new schools are entering the mix, but two remain at the top of Narain’s list.

Arizona State, Arizona, Providence, Georgia Tech are all calling me now,” noted Narain. “I am talking to those schools, but I am also working to cut down my list. San Diego State and Gonzaga are my top two right now.”

About Gonzaga, Narain said, “They do a great job with their bigs and developing them to go pro. Also they do a great job of using their bigs during the game.”

He continued, “Coach (Mark) Few is just a great guy who is laid back. He isn’t someone who will scream and yell which is good. He just wants to coach you.”

When it comes to the Aztecs, Narain said, “I feel very comfortable with the coaches there. They have come to a lot of my games, been by my school, and also they have talked to my parents a lot.”

Narain went on to say, “Also they give their bigs a lot of freedom which I like. They allow their bigs to push the ball, grab rebounds and run, and also they are a good defensive team which I like.”

There has been some buzz that Narain would re-classify from 2016 to 2015, but he says that is currently up in the air.

“I would say it is 50/50, maybe 60/40,” explained Narain.
