Nate Lubick has reportedly decommitted from Georgetown. NBE Basketball’s source thinks that Notre Dame is a likely destination.
I don’t expect Michigan to jump back into this recruitment but this is newsworthy none-the-less. As we all know, Nate Lubick was one of the top targets on Michigan’s recruiting board for a long time before his recruitment fizzled and he committed to Georgetown. With Evan Smotrycz in the fold and only one scholarship to give, I’m just not sure how much sense it makes for Michigan to pursue Lubick once again. I’m sure we will find out shortly as more news breaks.
In a related note, it’s pretty remarkable how far the Michigan basketball landscape has shifted since Lubick committed to Georgetown on October 7th, 2008. Recruits (Lubick and Byrd) were choosing other schools because Michigan hadn’t “proven” they could win. Matt Vogrich and Darius Morris had confidence and joined the party but Michigan was still coming off of a 22 loss season. 21 wins and a few commitments later, the picture looks lightyears better from top to bottom.
