One prospect that has emerged a great deal over the past year has been Brophy Prep High School's 6-foot-9 senior post Sean Dunn. Dunn emerged as the top post prospect in Arizona's 2017 class over the last year, and while he did not see his college recruitment soar as expected heading into the club season, this week Dunn gave a verbal commitment to a strong division-II program located in southern California.
After mulling over his options for the future, this week Dunn decided to end his college recruitment - electing for Point Loma Nazarene University and head coach Ryan Looney and his men's basketball staff.
Dunn had a division-I offer on the table for himself from the University of Albany, a strong mid-major program located in upstate New York. Dunn though would elect to go the division-II route and stay closer to home.
Point Loma is getting a steal in Dunn, as he is unlike many other prospects in the state, regardless of class. Standing close to 6-10 in height and possessing excellent size and girth, there are not many prospects in the state that have his combination of size and skill level. In fact, there may not be another prospect in the state that simply possesses his size. As a result, Dunn has a bright future ahead of himself and is a steal for a smaller college program.
Dunn will anchor a very talented Brophy Prep lineup this season, and should have a big senior year. Dunn played for the Arizona Power club program this club season.
It is very nice to see a young man that chose the right school for himself and for the right reasons. At Point Loma, Dunn should get an opportunity to play right away and often.
Congratulations to Dunn and his family, and also to the Arizona Power program on his commitment.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Dunn is a rare find in the state of Arizona - a larger post prospect with excellent size and a good overall skill level. Dunn is massive physically and he also runs the floor like that of a prospect much smaller. An excellent looking post prospect that has developed at a nice pace for himself, and still has some major upside to him. He has very good hands and feet, runs the floor well and is a good finisher around the basket with a soft touch. Dunn has good low-post footwork. He is a strong rebounder that gets excellent inside post position at all times, and is difficult to keep off the glass. He is also a capable shotblocker with good timing. A nice looking post prospect.
