Webster-Chan Flies Under The Radar

Negus Webster-Chan is coming off a big summer where he represented his country in the FIBA World Championships. Since then he's picked up plenty of college interest and a Big 12 scholarship offer.

For a guy ranked in Scout.com's top 75 Negus Webster-Chan still seems to be flying under the radar.

But as his junior season approaches that will likely change. A Canada native, Webster-Chan is transferring from his home country to Huntington (W.V.) Prep for his last two years of high school.

Webster-Chan, a 6-foot-6 wing that spends plenty of time playing on the ball, is coming off a big summer, where he represented his country in the Fiba World Championships.

"It was a real good summer for me this year," Webster-Chan told Scout.com. "It was my biggest summer because I got selected to play for Team Canada and play for the World Championships."

Webster-Chan played a big role in Canada's run to a Bronze medal. He averaged 7.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists during the World Championships.

"The first couple of games in the World Championships I wasn't playing my best, but as it went on I had some really good games both defensively and offensively," Webster-Chan said.

"It was the best experience of my life so far," he added. "I got to rep my country and play against the top countries in the world. We went up against different teams every day. We trained real hard for a month straight.

A versatile prospect with a unique skill set, Webster-Chan said he's an all-around player with a very unselfish game.

"I like to play defense first," he said. "I can shoot the ball from three now and my shot is more consistent. I can break down my man and make some plays at the basket. I have a mid-range and I'm a team player."

At this point Iowa State is the only school to offer him a scholarship. Washington, Syracuse, Xavier, Kentucky, USC, Ohio State, UNLV, Boston College, Charlotte, Virginia and Baylor are involved in his recruitment.

"This fall I'm probably going to go on some unofficial visits," Webster-Chan said. "I definitely want to visit Ohio State, UNLV, USC and Kentucky."
