Prentiss Hubb, one of the top junior guards in the D.C. area and the entire country, has whittled his college decision down to six top-flight Division I programs.

As seen in the tweet above, Hubb said he is now choosing between Maryland, Virginia, Kansas, Villanova, Notre Dame and Syracuse. The 6-foot-3 lefty, who averaged 13.9 points per game for Gonzaga this past season, is a four-star recruit and ranked 60th in ESPN’s Class of 2018 rankings. He also had offers from Georgetown, Baylor, Xavier and Marquette, among many other power-five programs, before cutting down his official list Sunday. He will play AAU basketball for D.C. Premier this spring and summer.
Hubb stood out on a loaded Eagles roster this season, which also featured senior point guard Chris Lykes (committed to Miami), junior forward Myles Dread (verbally committed to Penn State) and senior forward Eddie Scott (committed to Pennsylvania). He possesses a very smooth offensive game — including a reliable jumper and the ability to drive — and is also a lockdown perimeter defender.
He also teamed with Lykes to key Gonzaga’s transition offense, which often included Hubb playing well above the rim.
Hubb’s diverse offensive skill set and defensive savvy makes him a natural fit for any of these programs. He has the tools to score in half-court sets (ballhandling and off-ball instincts) and in the open floor (jump shot and athleticism). On defense he has length (specifically attractive for Syracuse’s 2-3 zone), quickness (always needed) and awareness (which could make him a good fit in Virginia’s patented Pack-Line man-to-man).
