Lubick Finds Fit In Big East Program

Nate Lubick has been mulling over his college decision for quite some time and he recently popped to a Big East program.

It's no secret that Nate Lubick has basically had his list of schools down to Michigan and Georgetown for quite some time. On Tuesday, he went with his gut and picked the Hoyas.

"I just fell in love with it," Lubick said. "That was my gut feeling. After taking another visit it just made it seem even better. I just felt real comfortable."

Lubick, a standout at Southborough (Mass.) St. Mark's School, took visits to both of his finalists. He went to Georgetown the last weekend in August and tripped to Michigan two weekends ago.

"[The visit] was a big part of it," Lubick said. "Getting on campus and seeing everything they were telling me that was real. To be honest Georgetown speaks for itself and the kids were unbelievable. Coach Thompson is a great guy and an unbelievable coach."

Georgetown assistant coach Kenya Hunter was the point man for Lubick's recruitment and played a major role in his final decision.

"Coach Hunter was arguable the biggest thing," Lubick said. "He made me feel real comfortable and his relationship with coach [John] Carroll and how close they are. I can trust him and he's going to take me under his wing."

This past summer Lubick, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound PF, ran with the New England Playaz and built his reputation up as a quality post option that will hit the glass and score on the block.

Lubick is the second 2010 prospect to commit to Georgetown. North Bethesda (Md.) Georgetown Prep standout Markel Starks verballed to the Hoyas two weeks ago.

Lubick is ranked No. 14 at the power forward spot and No. 58 overall by
