Lynch Gets Good News From The Huskies

2018 Seattle Prep (Wa.) C Nic Lynch got some good news recently after talking with the Husky coaching staff...


"Coach (Cameron) Dollar texted me, they were out at every one of our games last weekend, because they are looking at multiple guys on our Rotary Team and then he called me," Lynch told Dawgman.com. "He said the reason that I hadn't heard from them in a while was because they wanted to let coach (Mike) Hopkins get settled in and let him seem how I really played and last night they formally re-offered me."

The Huskies had previously offered the 6'10", 255-pound big-man before then head coach Lorenzo Romar was let go, but Lynch didn't know where he stood with the Dawgs until his phone call from Dollar.

"For a while I didn't really know where I stood, so it's definitely a relief and felt good to know for sure I still have an offer," Lynch acknowledged. "It was a little crazy, especially right after coach Romar got fired, because I didn't know who was going to be the new coach, so it was 'crazy', for lack of a better word, and I didn't know what to think. It wasn't really under my control, so I didn't really know what to do.

"(Dollar) said to give it a few days and then he'll get me on the phone with coach Hopkins to talk with him and get a chance to get to know him."

In addition to his offer from Washington, Lynch also claims an offer from Washington State and he said he hopes to make a decision shortly after the start of school once he's able to take some official visits.

"I will most likely finish out my AAU season and I hope to make decision after taking visits in late August and early September," Lynch added.

Speaking of his AAU team, Lynch recently joined Rotary and he went from being the first option with his old team (Friends of Hoop) to having to fight for opportunities with the likes of C.J. EllebyP.J. FullerNoah Williams and Kevin Porter Jr. in the lineup.

"I think it was the week after the Bellevue Tournament, I played that tournament with Friends of Hoop, and Rotary had given me a call before that and they said that they had an extra spot and they didn't have a true big guy like me, as skilled as I was, and that they could use a guy like me especially with my size," Lynch recalled. "It was nothing against FOH, I love those guys, I'd played with them since seventh grade, but it's my last opportunity to play with top guys like this so I had to take it.

"I definitely have to take advantage even more of my opportunities because of the talent around me, so I can't waste opportunities now. I knew I had to rebound a lot more on this team, I feel like I've done that."

We'll have more on Lynch in the coming months as he gets closer to making a decision on where he'll play his college ball.
