Before this summer started, 2018 wing Adrien Nunez didn’t have any interest or scholarships when it came to his recruitment. Now, the St. Thomas More product has earned offers from Wagner, Bowling Green, Robert Morris, Fordham, Saint Joseph’s, Dartmouth, VCU, and Penn State. He breaks down three schools that are recruiting him the hardest.

 

St. Joe’s: “They’re really straight forward,” said Nunez about the Hawks. “They explained how I fit on the team in detail. I met a couple of the guys on the team and I felt right at home. I trust coach (Phil) Martelli; he’s had a ton of pro guards go through there. It was a really warm atmosphere and I got a good feel from the coaching staff.”

 

VCU: “Haven’t been to VCU yet so I don’t know much about them but the head coach (Mike Rhoades) and associate head coach (Jeremy Ballard) have been calling me expressing how excited they are.”

 

Fordham: “They outlined my role clearly. The facilities were great and it’s close to home in New York, which is great. There’s a lot of opportunity to play on that team.”

 

As mentioned above, the 6-foot-6 wing had nothing in terms of his recruitment. Since his stock has sky rocketed, he spoke about what this summer has meant to him.

 

“It’s great,” said Nunez about his stock. “I went four years with nothing so I’m glad it’s all happening the way it is.”

 

The Born Ready Elite prospect plans to keep working on all parts of his game for this upcoming season.

 

“My overall game,” said Nunez about his developing process. “But more specifically my ball-handling, guard skills, and my strength.”

 

The New York native stated that he plans to commit by early October.
