Canadian point guard Andrew Nembhard cuts to four, sets visits
Andrew Nembhard, the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Canadian point guard from UPlay Canada and Montverde (FL) Academy, has cut his list to four schools after reclassifying to 2018.
Nembhard has also set official visits to Ohio State (Sept. 15-17), USC (Sept. 22-24), Gonzaga (Oct. 7-9) and Florida (Oct. 13-15), UPlay Canada coach Dwayne Washington said.
He cut UConn, Maryland, Stanford, Seton Hall and Virginia from his list.
Nembhard missed several months with a stomach issue that required surgery but returned to lead UPlay Canada to the quarterfinals of the Peach Invitational in Augusta, Ga., in July.
Nembhard has the size and poise to be a big-time college and potentially pro point guard.
“Andrew’s upside is NBA starting guard,” UPlay Canada coach Dwayne Washington said. “He’s way ahead of where Dennis Schroder is. He already shoots it better. He’s a legit 6-4 and defends the position.
“If he was from Florida or Texas or New York City, he’d be getting a lot more love.”
