Britt Preparing for UNC

Britt Preparing for UNC

North Carolina's future point guard Nate Britt met with his future coaches on the first day of the Recruiting Period.

"It was good," Britt said of the in-home visit held at Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill. "Coach Williams, Coach C.B. [McGrath] and Coach [Steve] Robinson got together and talked about the signing date and talked about my visit and stuff like that.

Me and Coach just talked about the summer and my new school. We just pretty much talked about everything."

Britt's parents also met with Williams and his staff earlier that day.

"They saw my parents before they came and saw me," Britt said. "They did it on the same day. Everything went well. They enjoyed it a lot. I think they were there for an hour or two. They enjoyed it a lot. My parents liked it."

Although Britt has been on UNC's campus a number of times for unofficial visits, he has yet to take his official visit. That was a topic of conversation during his in-home visit.

"I might do it on Late Night, but I'm not sure yet," Britt said. "That might be the day that I do it on, as of right now."

Britt is one of UNC's two commitments in the 2013 class. He joins five-star power forward Isaiah Hicks to make up their current group. Britt says his decision to go to North Carolina was based upon the family atmosphere and style of play.

"I think the first thing was when I took those unofficials there, they really made me feel at home," he said. "I think that kind of sold me."

"I already knew once they started recruiting me that, that was the playing style that I like to play," he continued. "That fast paced, up tempo, up and down game. That's the way Coach Williams always plays, so that system is perfect for me."

Britt spent his first three seasons of high school at Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga. He transferred to Oak Hill for his final season and said the transition is going smoothly.

"It hasn't been too hard for me," Britt said. "I look at myself as an independent person. It's not too hard for me to be away from everybody, but it is different. I'm enjoying it a lot. I like it."

"There's a lot more time for us to get in the gym," he added about the move. "Everyone is on campus. Everyone can get to the campus at the same time and it's convenient."

Weight training and transition play is what he's currently working on the most.

"I'm just continuing to get bigger," Britt said. "I've been lifting a lot. Everyone is saying I look a lot bigger. I think I've gained about five pounds since the summer since I've been working. [I'm working on] pretty much that and continuing to push the ball in transition. "

Britt and Oak Hill tip off their season with a scrimmage on Oct. 6 against Fork Union Military Academy. Their first regular season game is on Oct. 27 against Princeton Day School on Oak Hill's campus.
