UNC Offers Nunn After Camp

While North Carolina's July individual rising senior camp was headlined by high profile names checking out the campus, prospects like Kyle Nunn headed to Chapel Hill to earn a UNC scholarship offer. It only took the 6-foot-6, 260-pound offensive tackle from Sumter (S.C.) High School one practice session to convince the Tar Heels' coaching staff that he was worth one.

"They said I did great [during the camp]," said Nunn. "I was going to do both [Saturday] sessions, but after the first session they told me they were going to offer me and that I didn't need to go to the second one."

Nunn, who left his house at 4 a.m. Saturday to heard to Chapel Hill, exited the camp upon receiving the offer and headed to N.C. State for an unofficial visit. Before he left, though, he toured the facilities and spoke to head coach John Bunting and other members of the coaching staff.

"They were hoping that North Carolina was the place for me and they were hoping that I thought that, too," said Nunn

Although he wanted to get home before agreeing or disagree with that statement, Nunn definitely enjoyed his stay.

"It was nice, it was a nice experience," said Nunn. "They have nice facilities. The coaches were really, really nice. It was a pretty good experience."

Also "nice" was offensive line coach Mark Weber, who Nunn spent most of his time with.

"He was a nice guy," said Nunn. "He coached pretty good – not just me, but everyone else. He seemed very involved in the camp."

Nunn, who also holds offers from N.C. State and Virginia Tech, currently denies a leader, but has given himself a deadline to make a final decision.

"I don't have any favorites," said Nunn. "I plan on making a decision before August ninth – that's when school starts. I want to make my decision before school starts."

Following his junior season at Sumter, Nunn earned all-area, all-region, and all-conference honors after grading out at 89-percent and recording 40 knock down blocks.
