Nunn Talks Visits, Recruitment

It has been a good junior season for Kendrick Nunn, the 6-1 shooting guard from Chicago (Ill.) Simion, and now the nation's #42-ranked prospect is taking a strong look at his recruitment...

It was a good start to the AAU season for four-star shooting guard Kendrick Nunn. The 6-foot-1 Nunn helped lead his team to a tournament championship at the NY2LA Swish ‘N Dish. This coming on the heels of a recent unofficial visit.

"It feels good to be back playing AAU basketball," said Nunn. "I am just ready to show everybody what I can do."

Nunn hasn't had much time off from the end of his school season since his Chicago (Ill.) Simeon team won yet another state championship.

"It has been awesome to win state titles back-to-back-to-back and hopefully we can get four," said Nunn. "I can't even express how it would feel to win a state championship every year I am in high school."

Recently Nunn made a visit to Illinois to check out the Fighting Illini and new head coach John Groce. For Nunn the visit went well, and improved his already strong relationship with Groce.

"The trip went well," Nunn explained. "Me and Coach Groce already had a relationship so I am just trying to build on that."

He continued about the visit, "With me and Coach Groce having a good relationship I am glad he is at Illinois now. He is a good coach who lets his players get up and down."

Outside of Illinois, Nunn noted significant interest coming in from Marquette, Memphis, UCLA, Florida State, and Nebraska.

Though it is far from home, Nunn says he is hoping to learn more about UCLA and their program.

"I have been talking to their staff a little bit," said Nunn of the Bruins. "I don't know too much about them but we are trying to set up a visit."

Also Marquette has been very active in the recruitment. They landed a fellow Simeon product in Steve Taylor in the 2012 class, now they are trying to add Nunn.

"Marquette is a good look," said Nunn. "It is a high-major school with a tradition of great guards."

For now Nunn says he is just evaluating everything and gaining as much information as he can on all the programs recruiting him.

"I am just looking for a good relationship with the coach who plays up tempo and lets their guards have some freedom," said Nunn.
