The San Diego State Aztecs landed one of the top power forward in La Porte, Indiana, prospect Nolan Narain. The only question next is if Narain will be part of the 2015 or 2016 class; he is rated as the the No. 62 player in the 2016 class.

His offer sheet is quite amazing with offers from Arizona State, Illinois, Florida, Memphis, Xavier and plenty of other offers. Ultimately it was thought that Gonzaga was the leader for Narain's services, but he ended up picking the Aztecs.
Narain's reason to chose the Aztecs was due how he got along with Steve Fisher and the other coaches on staff.
"For me it was my comfortability with the coaching staff and where I felt I would be happy and fit in well," Narain told Rivals.com.
The big question is what class he will be a part of. Currently, Narain is on path academically to be part of the 2015 class, but the decision for another year of high school or prep school is still an option. However, Rivals is reporting that he is deciding to be a member of the 2015 class.
As for his game, Narain is comfortable facing the basket taking mid-range shots, but he also has a solid post game and is a shot blocker. He is still somewhat raw with a lot of upside and that could be scary since he is already considered one of the best power forwards.
Narain is 6-foot-9-inches tall but is only 209 pounds and will need to bulk up that frame to be able to handle college basketball. While he is can rebound well, he still has some work to do on that part of the game.
