Simeon High School shooting guard Kendrick Nunn has narrowed the list of schools he may sign with to three. He will choose between the Illinois Fighting Illini, the Marquette Golden Eagles and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Kendrick Nunn, teammate of top recruit Jabari Parker, has narrowed his list of schools down to three. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard will now choose between the Illinois Fighting Illini, the Ohio St. Buckeyes and the Marquette Golden Eagles.
Nunn was impressed at how Illinois presented themselves to him:
They put forward something that was pretty much legendary I would say. It was straight forward on him being that in-state guy coming to the state school and being not just a basketball player, but someone who leaves a legacy at his state school.
Nunn's father was impressed with how oriented his visit to Marquette was to the style of offense they run.
They had a nice presentation based on the style of play with Kendrick's footage on top of their highlights which was pretty nice. They put Kendrick's highlights back-to-back with Darius Johnson-Odom showing Kendrick that they are similar players, and with them being similar he would fit in with their offense.
Nunn was originally interested in playing for UCLA Bruins and the Memphis Tigers as well, but the Bruins signed shooting guard Allerick Freeman and the Tigers have cooled on the shooting guard prospect. Nunn may move his official visit to Ohio State up, originally scheduled for early Oct., since he is no longer visiting UCLA.
Nunn plays for Simeon High School, the same school that produced Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.
