It is a big holiday weekend for All-Met point guard Nate Britt of Gonzaga, who will take an unofficial visit to North Carolina on Saturday and then will take an unofficial visit to Maryland on Monday and take in the Terps-Miami football game.
It continues a busy offseason for Britt, who last weekend visited Arizona and also has taken trips to Villanova and Virginia. His father, Nate Sr., also expects an unofficial visit to Georgetown sometime soon.
“Nate wanted to sit down with the coaches and see what they all have to say and ask some questions, see what the campuses look like and talk to some players,” said Nate Britt Sr., who also coaches his son on D.C. Assault’s club team. “He hadn’t planned on trying to make a decision [soon]. He just wanted to get the numbers down.”
As for Maryland, in addition to the feeling out process between a recruit and a coach, there is an interest in seeing new coach Mark Turgeon’s style up front and personal.
“You want to see how he is going to coach his team this coming year,” Britt Sr. said. “He wanted to do that before saying, ‘I do,’ because at the end of the day, that [coach] is who he is going to be working for.”
