PHILADELPHIA -- Georgetown commit Nate Lubick is not going to end up a Hoya after all.
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Lubick is going to decommit from Georgetown and will look elsewhere.
"He is re-opening his recruitment," the source said.
Lubick, a 6-8 forward from St. Mark's (Mass.), announced his commitment to the Hoyas in early October of last year.
A versatile big man who can run the floor, Lubick is ranked No. 47 by Rivals.com. He plays AAU ball with the New England Playaz.
A source with knowledge says that Lubick was considering Michigan and UCLA strongly before choosing Georgetown, but does not know where he will be looking for a second destination. Notre Dame could be a possibility, the source said.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- All day, word of Nate Lubick decommitting from Georgetown hung around town, as well as gyms in Philadelphia, Reading and other points where college basketball coaches have gathered during the opening of the July evaluation period.
NBE debunked the rumor, following Lubick’s game with the NE Playaz today.
“I’m committed to Georgetown,” said Lubick, a big shooter who’s been working on improving his quickness and ability to defend different positions this summer.
When asked if he was considering re-opening his options, Lubick shook his head repeatedly, giving a quick “no.”
The rumor began to circulate on Wednesday evening and seemed to be confirmed on Thursday in Philadephia.
“He is re-opening his recruitment,” a source told NBE’s Jeff Borzello at the Reebok All-American Camp in the Philadelphia University Gallagher Center.
Asked by NBE’s Chris Dokish this morning to comment, NE Playaz head coach John Carroll stated, “Right now Nate is committed to Georgetown. What he does in the future is up to Nate. If you know what I’m saying. Is that a fair way to say it?”
Still, others continued to speculate on Lubick’s future.
One major college assistant head coach at the event, who is not recruiting Lubick, predicted to us rather matter-of-factly, “He will [de-commit], plus he will eventually go to Duke”.
A source with knowledge says that Lubick was considering Michigan and UCLA strongly before choosing Georgetown, but does not know where he will be looking for a second destination if he does open it back up.
Notre Dame could be a possibility, the source indicated.
