Lubick finds his fit

Working with a list of four schools, four-star 2010 prospect Nate Lubick settled on a Big East power where he feels he can maximize his talents.
The 6-foot-8, 227-pound power forward from Southborough (Mass.) St. Mark's High School has picked Georgetown over Michigan, Stanford and Virginia.
"I mean the school speaks for itself," said Lubick. "The academics are top of the line. The basketball program is outstanding. D.C. is the most powerful city in the world.
"Coach Thompson is a classy guy and a helluva coach. And (Assistant) Coach Hunter is terrific. I grew really close to him, and he is also a close friend to (New England Playaz coach) John Carroll who I'm close to."
A skilled big man who can operate effectively both around the basket and on the perimeter, Lubick is now ready to further expand his game for a Georgetown system in which he feels he can thrive.
"It feels good right now because I know I made the right decision," he said. "I'm going to work even harder now.
"The Georgetown system is a great fit for me. The coaches appreciate the way I pass the ball and have the ability to play like a guard. They feel I play sort of like a coach on the floor. They'll be able to run a lot of stuff through me and will use me to step out and shoot the ball and post up. The main thing is to play smart which comes natural to me."
Lubick, the No. 62 ranked prospect and No. 17 ranked power forward in the class of 2010, joins fellow four-star prospect Markel Starks as Georgetown's two commitments from the class of 2010.
