First off, I'd like to thank Nate Lubick for taking his time to do this interview. What a great kid, he will make Georgetown proud!
Lubick, a 6'9" power forward out of St. Mark's High School, located in Southborough, Mass., is Georgetown's top recruit from the 2010 class.
Lubick is the 48th-ranked prospect according to the ESPNU Top 100, and the 12th ranked power forward. He averaged 17 points a game during his senior year.
Georgetown and John Thompson III are in need of a better bench presence, and the team hopes that Lubick, along with other incoming recruits, can help solve the weak link of the team.
Nate was nice enough to answer eight questions with me.
Garrett Tucker: At what point did you realize you really had a chance to play basketball past your high school days?
Nate Lubick: All along I knew I would be able to play, or at least hoped I would be able to. Basketball runs in the family with my dad being a coach for so long, so he had me working when I was young.
Tucker: For those that aren't aware of your style of play, who would you compare yourself to in the college/NBA game?
Lubick: I would say I play like Jeff Green played in college, maybe a little David Lee, too.
Tucker: You are signed with Georgetown. What stuck out to you about the school, program, etc?
Lubick: I loved how strong it was academically, I love [Washington] D.C., and I have a ton of family there. The style of play and coaches were great for me.
Tucker: What team first contacted you about playing college basketball? What kind of impression did you get on that team?
Lubick: I picked up my first scholarship offer from Colgate in eighth grade. I thought it was the coolest thing ever so I wanted to commit on the spot!
Tucker: What do you think you can bring to Georgetown as not only a freshman, but for as long as you decide to stay in college?
Lubick: I am going to go into the situation looking to be a piece to the puzzle. With Greg [Monroe] leaving, there is obviously some big shoes to fill in the front court, but I am not going in trying to be Greg Monroe. I'm going in trying to help my team win as much as possible.
Tucker: Any favorite college players or high school recruits you communicate with regularly?
Lubick: Well I talk to the guys on the Georgetown team quite frequently, but aside from that, Jordan Williams (Maryland) and Erik Murphy (Florida) are two of my good buddies from AAU.
Tucker: Many believe the Big East is the best conference in college basketball. Did that effect your decision to go to Georgetown?
Lubick: Of course it did; the Big East is a dream for all kids growing up on the East Coast.
Tucker: What are your goals for your stint as a Hoya?
Lubick: To win a lot of games, that's it.
Thanks for the interview Nate. Can't wait to see him take the court next fall as a Hoya.
