Imagine you’re D’Marco Dunn. Your mother gets transferred from Arizona to Fort Bragg just at the very point where you’re starting to blow up in recruiting.
So instead of Arizona and other Western schools learning about you and your game, it’s ACC and other southern and eastern teams.
UNC, Arizona, Vandy, Maryland, Texas, Marquette, Houston, Wichita State and East Carolina among others have already offered. And now so has Clemson.
And while Clemson often seems a poor relation when it comes to recruiting, Dunn, having just moved here, isn’t overly awed by some of the bigger schools and says Clemson actually has a chance.
“They are definitely near the top,” Dunn said. “My list is wide open, I can’t really say right now in choosing one school over another, but they are near the top...[The UNC offer] doesn’t change things too much. I know what they mean to college basketball, especially in the state of North Carolina. I’m just looking for the right fit for me, whether it’s North Carolina or another school, it’s just about the right fit for me.”
Well we’ll see. We’d just about bet the rent money on this though: he’s not going to ECU.
