Nate Britt Jr., a 2011 All-Met guard who recently finished his junior year at Gonzaga, said Sunday he has left the District private school and will play his final high school season at Oak Hill Academy, which runs a nationally renowned boys’ basketball program in southwestern Virginia.
Britt, a 6-foot-1 point guard who has orally committed to play at North Carolina, averaged 15.8 points as a junior last season while leading the fifth-ranked Eagles to a 27-7 record. Rumors of Britt’s transfer to Oak Hill had persisted in recent months, but it wasn’t until Sunday, during an interview with Butch McAdams on WOL, that Britt addressed the issue publicly.
“Next season at Oak Hill, as far as in the classroom, I have most of my credits, so I just want to be able to take a couple college classes and start getting credits for when I go to Carolina,” Britt said during the radio interview. “I think I’ll get two of those done. And then just to maintain my GPA and try to raise it as much as possible.”
