Gonzaga guard Prentiss Hubb is a player to watch in the 2018 class. Recently Hubb picked up an offer from John Thompson III and Georgetown.
Prentiss is listed as a four-star combo guard by 247sports. He is also ranked as the No. 2 shooting guard in the Washington, DC area and the No. 19 shooting guard in the nation. Hubb started to get a lot of attention after his 17 point performance in Gonzaga’s 2015 WCAC championship win over DeMatha.
This season, Hubb was second in the team in scoring as he averaged 10.5 points per game. Prentiss scored in double figures 19 times. He netted a season high 26 points (23 points in the first half) against DeMatha on Jan. 31.
He scored 20 points in the thrilling overtime loss to H.D. Woodson in the semifinals of the DCSAA Tournament. It was the second game where he scored 20 or more points. Prentiss Hubb was also named to the WCAC First team All-Conference and the DCSAA Second Team All-State.
Prentiss has offers from Maryland, Cincinnati, NC State, Penn State, George Mason and Xavier. Right now, Maryland is looking like a favorite to land Hubb but he is still a sophomore and more offers should come his way during his junior year.
Hubb is the second player from Gonzaga to receive an offer from Georgetown. Three-star guard Chris Lykes is the other Purple Eagle that is being looked at by the Hoyas. Another player from the DC area that is on Georgetown’s radar is H.D. Woodson guard Kiyon Boyd.
It will be interesting to see if the Hoyas can land some of these local players.
