Britt In Demand

INDIANAPOLIS -- As the live evaluation period began, Nate Britt was one of the most highly-tracked players in the country.

Scout.com's No. 1-ranked point guard in the class of 2013, Britt and his D.C. Assault teammates took the floor on Wednesday afternoon at the Adidas Invitational in front of a slew of coaches, including Roy Williams.

"I think that's a great experience to have all of these high-major D-1 head coaches watching us play," Britt said. "This is the first time I've really had anything like this. I think this is a great experience."

Britt played well in front of Williams, knocking down perimeter shots, setting up teammates and helping lead the D.C. Assault to an overtime victory over the Eric Gordon Central Stars.

"I think I'm a playmaker; being able to make plays for my teammates and myself," Britt said. "Being able to score for myself and being able to make plays for my teammates and getting them involved (is what I do)."

Coming off of a successful month of June, where his stock rose with a great performance at NBPA Camp, Britt is now ready for the July circuit.

"The camps were great. It was all of the best-of-the-best playing against each other. All those guys are here playing on the circuit in these tournaments, so it's good," Britt said. "I think it's going to be fun (with D.C. Assault). We haven't won any tournaments earlier in the season, so all of these big tournaments, the Adidas tournaments we're playing in July, those are the (tournaments) we really want to win."

The recruiting process has also picked up for Britt, as more-and-more schools begin to become involved, including the Tar Heels.

Britt claims scholarship offers from Villanova, Georgetown, Virginia, Arizona, Pittsburgh and Seton Hall while other schools have recently come calling.

"Duke, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, UCLA, UConn, and Syracuse have called recently," Britt said. The recent call from a North Carolina assistant marks his first direct contact with the UNC staff, though he said his father has previously spoken to the coaches.

Like many 2013 prospects, Britt is currently sifting through the phone calls and the new recruiting interest before forming a set list of any kind.

"It's so many (phone calls)," Britt acknowledged. "I've spoken to North Carolina. All of those (schools') coaches have been calling me, and once those coaches could call on the 15th, they started calling since then. I've been in touch with all of them, and it's been a great experience. Now that (coaches) can call us, we can build a relationship and I think that's great."

Britt would like to take some visits in August, but isn't sure of any specific destinations.

"Most likely, I'm not sure where, but the visits will be after July," Britt said. "Maybe going and starting to help make my decision before next year. I'm still open right now, but after this month and playing on the circuit I want to start deciding where I want to go and making my decision."
