Guard Prentiss Hubb announced his commitment to Notre Dame.

The 6-2 Hubb from Gonzaga College High (Washington, D.C.) chose the Irish over a final four that also included Maryland, Virginia and Villanova.

He was named to the American Family Insurance ALL-USA District of Columbia First Team after averaging 13.3 points and 4.5 assists per game during Gonzaga’s run to the DCSAA championship.

Hubb is ranked as the No. 5 shooting guard in the Class of 2018 according to the 247Sports Composite. Rankings by Rivals and ESPN also have him listed as a shooting guard.

Gonzaga coach Steve Turner said the team played with two point guards last season — Miami signee Chris Lykes is the other — and that Hubb will have the ball in his hands more this coming season. Turner said most schools were recruiting him as a point guard.

Hubb is the first commit in the Class of 2018 for Notre Dame, which is expected to have four openings following the 2017-18 season.

Hubb visited South Bend after the second session of the Under Armour Association, which was held on the last weekend in April in Westfield, Ind. He is playing for DC Premier on the UAA circuit.
