Illinois lands SG Kendrick Nunn


ESPN 100 shooting guard Kendrick Nunn (Chicago/Simeon) ended his recruitment on Saturday with a verbal pledge to Illinois, sources confirmed to ESPN.com.

The 6-foot-1 Nunn chose the Illini over Memphis, Marquette and Ohio State. He originally committed to Texas A&M before his junior season.

Nunn is the third recruit for new Illinois head coach John Groce from the 2013 class, joining fellow ESPN 100 guard Malcolm Hill (Belleville, Ill./Belleville East) along with center Maverick Morgan (Springboro, Ohio/Springboro).
