Notre Dame's 2018 class added its first member tonight — Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga Rivals100 point guard Prentiss Hubb.
The 6-foot-2, 155-pounder selected the Irish over a final four of Maryland, Villanova and Virginia. Hubb took a visit to Notre Dame on April 30-May 1 following the UAA II (Under Armour Association) event held in Indianapolis April 28-30.
Rivals national analyst Corey Evans had this to add about Hubb following his announcement:
"A 6-foot-1 junior guard that has an impeccable feel for the game but is also someone that can slide off of the ball thanks to his shot making acumen, Hubb announced his intentions to play his college ball in South Bend beginning in the fall of 2018."
Mike Brey and staff are faced with a crucial 2018 class with four departing seniors in point guard Matt Farrell and post players Bonzie Colson, Martinas Geben and Austin Torres. Those four scholarships are on top of the currently available three.
Landing Hubb puts the Irish class off to a great start for Brey and company as Hubb fills one of the four open scholarships following the 2017-2018 season and will step in to help replace Farrell along with rising sophomore TJ Gibbs for the 2018-2019 campaign. The four-star ranks as the No. 45 player overall in the class.
Stay tuned for more on Hubb's commitment to Notre Dame.
