Dream City Christian Prep's talented 6-foot-3 senior point guard Jayden Nunn saw his college recruitment take off slowly, but then begin to soar this prep season, after he consistently performed at a high level on The Grind Session. As a result, Nunn gave a nice and big verbal commitment to Iowa State University in the fall. Unfortunately for Nunn, former Head Coach Steve Prohm is no longer with the program, and now new Head Coach TJ Otzelberger has taken over at Iowa State, after leaving UNLV. With a new coach at the helm, Nunn, like his prep teammate Arthur Kaluma, is considering his options for school next fall.
Unlike Kaluma, Nunn had only given a verbal commitment to Iowa State, so for him to reconsider his commitment, and choose another college program, would be simple to do. Unfortunately, the process of picking another college program is not as simple, and now life for Nunn has become much more complicated as of late.
While many college programs will be focusing on the transfer portal this spring, Nunn is one point guard prospect that will have many Division-I programs in hot pursuit, as he is tough, defends and plays with a purpose. For numerous college programs already, Nunn has become a priority for them in their recruiting process.
Currently, Nunn has received new offers from Arizona State, VCU and Mississippi State, to go with an existing offer he still has from Iowa State. Nunn has not indicated a leader at this point in his college recruitment.
The tough and talented guard prospect is now receiving high-major recruitment and become one of the hottest guard prospects in the country this season, after a strong showing on The Grind Session against top-rated competition each night. Nunn is among the elite overall guard prospects in the highly competitive Grind Session, and his ability to defend at a high level, while also being able to make plays off the dribble, score the basketball and set up his teammates for scoring opportunities, is very attractive.
A native of Flint, Michigan, Nunn is different, as he is tough and a physical guard with an excellent body and size for the guard position. He can play either guard position, and does not settle for long perimeter shots, but rather enjoys getting into the lane and finishing plays, or creating for his teammates. He is a strong ball handler and passer of the ball - a floor general that enjoys running a team and is very vocal. Nunn's leadership skills and competitive drive make him a valuable asset to his team.
It will be very interesting to see which college programs continue to get into the recruiting hunt for Nunn, and where he ultimately lands this spring. I will continue to follow his college recruitment closely, and bring you any updates as they continue to develop.
