You are right. Paul VI has never been particularly fertile recruiting territory for the Rams. Perhaps that will change. Dug would be an amazing get but Michigan is definitely the favorite at this juncture.I'm not sure we have ever had a commit from Paul VI...at least none I can recall.
Would be a massive get...hard to believe Michigan isn't the favorite but we're in the mix and that's all you can ask for.
Looks just like Fatts.
To be fair their best players each year have been REALLY good ones and gone super high major:You are right. Paul VI has never been particularly fertile recruiting territory for the Rams. Perhaps that will change. Dug would be an amazing get but Michigan is definitely the favorite at this juncture.
And Stan Robinson, who originally committed to Indiana. When he transferred he did visit VCU before committing to Rhode Island.To be fair their best players each year have been REALLY good ones and gone super high major:
and they have Keels who is 5* going super high major as well....I'm sensing a trend here...maybe we get lucky though.
Talking to a coach every day. Sounds like we are working hard for him. Here's hoping it pays off.Since decommitting from Iowa State last month, 2022 guard and 247Sports three-star pros0ect Jayden Nunn has steadily added new options and new interest.
The Dream City (Arizona) Christian standout collected offers from Mississippi State, Arizona State and VCU last month. He is rated as the nation's No. 44 point guard and the state's No. 13 prospect by 247Sports.
"There's been some more interest lately," said the 6-foot-4 and 190-pound Nunn. "I am looking at all of my options so far and I am still not trying to rush anything. Wichita State, Marquette and Cincinnati started showing interest and LSU is still showing interest. I also heard from UNLV and Maryland last week, too."
Over the past couple of weeks, Nunn has taken in several Zoom meetings with Mississippi State, Arizona State and VCU. He noted of those experiences and the message he heard from those programs.
"I am talking regularly with VCU, Mississippi State and Arizona State, and I've done Zoom calls with all three schools," Nunn said. "Arizona State's meeting was last week and it went really good. It was just me and Coach Bobby Hurley and he showed me a lot about their system. He talked about playing time and he said I could make a big impact.
"All of the VCU coaches were on that Zoom call and I talk to them almost every day. Each day it's a different assistant reaching out or it's the head coach."
Concerning Mississippi State, Nunn has held multiple Zoom meetings with head coach Ben Howland and his staff over the past couple of weeks.
"The first Zoom call I did with Mississippi State, they showed me the weight room and their workouts and their facilities," recalled Nunn. "Then the other Zoom call, it was with the academic advisors and Coach Howland and Coach (Ernie) Zeigler were on there, too. It was pretty cool and Coach Howland said I could have a bright future in their program."
Nunn added that he does see an opportunity on the Bulldogs' depth chart. He is also familiar with 2022 Mississippi State commitment Alden Applewhite and played against Applewhite twice this season.
"Coach Howland talked about coaching Russell Westbrook and he has coached over 20 NBA players," said Nunn. "That catches my attention and it means he has a feel for the NBA. He likes me as a combo guard and we talked about my opportunity there.
"I do see a good opportunity there and they need more guards in their system. One of their younger guards (Deivon Smith) is transferring and another guard is looking at the NBA. I know Alden Applewhite is going there and he is a good player. He's a really good shooter and his defense is really underrated."
The spring signing period for college basketball begins April 14th (Wednesday) and concludes on May 19th. Nunn still expects to make his decision at some point this month but hasn't settled in on an exact day just yet.
"I don't have a set day," said Nunn. "But the plan is to decide either on signing day or around signing day. Playing time and the impact I can make will be a factor and it also depends on who I have the best relationships with."
