Sought after Chicago Simeon star Kendrick Nunn reportedly chooses Illinois.

Chicago Simeon class of 2013 prospect Kendrick Nunn appears to have committed to Illinois, tweeting this message to Illinois coach John Groce:

Nunn, part of a 3-time state championship Simeon team that also features the nation's top prospect Jabari Parker, had originally committed to Texas A&M, but de-committed in September of 2011. His final list of schools reportedly included Illinois, Memphis, UCLA, Marquette and Ohio State. Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago reported that Nunn was impressed during a recent meeting with Illinois:

Melvin (Nunn) said Groce emphasized Nunn was the recruit the Illini believed could turn the program around. Melvin said his son was intrigued in being that player for Illinois.

"Yeah, because you got to think this is his state school, him having that opportunity to be that guy," Melvin said. "Just like he told him, he's going to be one that gets that ball rolling."
