Kendrick Nunn Decommits from A&M

Kendrick Nunn, (Simeon HS, IL) a 2013 point guard, shocked the recruiting world with a commitment to Texas A&M a few days after the Aggies added more talent in 2012.

It sent shockwaves through College Station and energized the fan base.

The only bad part was that his decision to commit was shortlived. A few months after committing, the 6-2 guard, decided to open it back up and explore his options.

"As of today, I will be opening my recruiting process," he said. "I feel like I rushed my decision and I still have a strong two years left to make the right one."

Nunn, one of the more electrifying players in a loaded 2013 class, is a must get for a lot of programs.

He's quick, can create and has the ability to finish consistently around the rim. More impressively is his jump shot. Nunn can knock down jumpers from anywhere with ease.

The Aggies held one to the talented combo guard for sometime but is still conceived the team to beat even after the decommitment.

"There is no dislike of the Texas A&M or the basketball staff," he said. "This was just a decision that I truly felt was best for me at the time."

Before committing, Nunn held offers from Arizona, DePaul, Florida State, Memphis, Missouri, North Carolina State, Ohio, Providence and Xavier with interest coming in from just about everywhere.

With the opening of his commitment, I'd be surprised if he didn't hear from just about every school that previously offered and some other big named schools that are looking for a point guard in the class of 2013.

Most notable, the North Carolina Tarheels. The 'Heels missed out of Bronson Koenig and Nate Britt is rumored to have a strong Maryland lean.

Nunn fits the description of a North Carolina guard and Roy Williams was one that had shown interest before he committed as well.

Right now, this is all just speculation but I have a hard time believing this talented guard will not hear from major programs. He sent shockwaves when he committed but thunder when he decided to re-open his recruitment.
