SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Sitaleki Nunn is an intriguing prospect. Last year, he played quarterback for San Mateo (Calif.) Serra, but on Sunday, he played wide receiver for KT Elite Red.
"I played receiver sophomore year, and I played quarterback for four games at the beginning, but then I went out to play receiver," Nunn said.
Nunn completed 113 of 187 passes for 1,766 yards, with 21 touchdowns and six picks as a quarterback, rushed 140 times for 1,068 yards and 11 touchdowns and was named the WCAL Player of the Year, led the league in passing and rushing yards, was named an all-state junior, first-team multi-purpose athete, and earned All-WCAL first-team and Most Valuable Offensive Back honors.
"I had to learn everything about it," Nunn said of the quarterback position, which he hadn't played since he was in Pop Warner.
He is still set to be a quarterback again next season, as the quarterback who transferred in from St. Francis (necessitating he sit out the first four games) has now switched to receiver, to save his arm for baseball. That quarterback? Hunter Bishop, who just committed to Oregon State for baseball.
Nunn is mainly working at receiver during the 7on season, but is training with QB coach and former San Jose State signal caller Adam Tafralis at San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian.
"I thought it was good, and they showed a lot more emphasis on their academics and your life after football," Nunn said. "Everyone knows the average [NFL career] is three years. They say that you should base your choice off of what you can do in the future, what's going to give you a better chance out there in life."
Nunn has a 3.1 grade point average.
