Community May 13, 2015 by Gord Bowes Hamilton Mountain News

Nolan Narain, one of the top Canadian high school basketball players, has verbally committed to San Diego State.

He’ll be part of a college basketball program that is intent on becoming a national powerhouse, recruiting top prospects from schools across the U.S.

Narain was a star at Sir Allan MacNab before transferring this year to La Lumiere, a premiere prep school in Indiana. Numerous top NCAA basketball colleges, including Florida and Gonzaga, made offers to the 6’ 10” power forward before he chose the Aztecs.

“They came to my school the most out of anybody recruiting me,” Narain, 17, told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

“They came from California and they came during the winter time, when it can be pretty rough out here. Not many people would want to come to a cold climate like this when they live in a warm climate.

“They could have said, ‘That’s it. I’m never coming out more than once. It’s cold out there.’ But they kept coming out … went to my house (in Hamilton) to visit my parents, and no other school did that. … They showed me that they really wanted me and really needed me.”

Narain is ranked 36th in the U.S. by recruiting website Scout.com.
