There is no substitute for being able to shoot the basketball, and class of 2017 power forward Jack Nunge can do just that. The Indiana native can really stretch the defense from the frontcourt and he is having a solid spring with Pocket City Basketball.
At 6-foot-9 with shooting ability, Nunge is someone who brings a unique skill set to the floor, and now he says he is working to be a more complete player.
“I think I have been playing pretty well,” said Nunge. “I have been working on getting my shot off quicker, working on my post moves, and things like that. I have really grown the past few years so I am getting used to playing down low.”
On the recruiting trail Nunge has offers from Clemson and Iowa. Also Butler has shown significant interest as have academic schools such as Vanderbilt and Stanford.
Recently Nunge had an in-home visit with Fran McCaffery from Iowa, and he came away impressed with what he heard from the Hawkeyes boss.
“I didn’t know what to expect, but I really liked Coach McCaffery,” said Nunge. “He seems like a great guy and if I were to go there I think I would really enjoy playing for him.”
For now Nunge says he is in no hurry to make a decision. He possesses a 4.0 GPA off the court and wants to take a refined look at the recruiting process.
When asked what he is looking for in a school, Nunge said, “I am looking for somewhere I can get a good education and also play in a good basketball program.”
Look for Nunge to go through the process in July and continue to learn as much as he can about all of the schools recruiting him.
