EYBL: 2018 Seattle center Nic Lynch showing progress, adding offers

EMERSON, Ga. - Nic Lynch has shown off his improved game at the Nike EYBL this weekend. He has a couple Pac-12 schools vying for his commitment.

One of the more improved centers on the west in 2018 has been Seattle Prep’s Nic Lynch.

The 6-foot-10, 255-pound center made the move to Seattle Rotary this spring and has shown progress with his skill set and mobility. He’s getting up and down the court better, rebounding his area and scoring inside with his size and hook shot.

“I feel like my game is coming along really well,” Lynch said. “I just switched to the EYBL this year, which has helped me a lot.

“I’m shooting the ball well from 15 to 17 feet. I’m rebounding well against more athletic guys. I want to keep expanding my range, footwork and athleticism.”

Lynch holds offers from Washington, Washington State, Columbia and Toledo, with the Huskies offer recently being reaffirmed by the new staff.


“I had one from (Lorenzo) Romar but I hadn’t heard from the new staff yet,” Lynch said. “It felt good. They wanted coach (Mike) Hopkins to see me play first.

“It’s my hometown school, I watch them a lot and go to almost every game; I have season tickets. I live five minutes away from the arena and know almost everything about them.”

The rising senior also knows a lot about his other local Pac-12 offer in Washington State.

“They’re in-state, Pac-12, I see them a lot on TV and they’re getting better,” said Lynch.

Lynch has no favorites at this point but has an idea of when he wants to make a decision.

“My options are still pretty open so we’ll see what happens,” he said. “I’m going to let AAU play out and then I’ll take visits late August, early September at the start of the school year. I’ll make a decision around that time.”
