2010 Guard Prospect Has Heavy Ivy Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan highlights the individual game of Nolan Hart, an important member of the Albany Academy basketball program as well as the Albany City Rocks AAU team ... Hart is a 2010 prospect who has had some terrific games this past season ...

Don't be deceived by the small frame of Nolan Hart, a 5-foot-10 guard from The Albany Academy in Albany, New York. There isn't a tougher competitor out on the floor and a more dangerous one from the perimeter.

Hart, who led the Albany area with three-pointers made on 50 percent shooting from long range, is a 2010 prospect with some decent division one interest in his skill level.

An excellent student too, Nolan has some solid division one interest from quality academic institutions. Among the schools watching his progress -- Columbia, Dartmouth and Harvard. In addition, Fairfield and Fordham have also expressed some interest.

Previously, we reported that Hart, who averaged 11 points a game in the 2008-2009 basketball season, hammered a talented Bishop Loughlin (Brooklyn, New York) defense for 21 second-half points to help his team win a thrilling 92-87 victory.

Hart hit for 11 straight points in the second half to help his team overcome a slight deficit at 66-65.

Noted for his quick release and long-range skills, Hart has been steadily improving his individual game. He finished up with 24 points, including six of nine from beyond the three-point line.

Nolan will compete this spring and summer for the The Albany City Rocks AAU program.

A late bloomer, perhaps Nolan will grow another two to three inches, making himself an even more attractive recruit.
