Michigan landed its fourth commitment of the 2018 class when Adrien Nunez committed to the Wolverines. A 6-foot-5 small forward and one of the top shooters in America, Nunez seems to be the type of shooting wing that has flourished recently in Ann Arbor.
A relative unknown until July, a number of Ivy League programs, along with Penn State, St. Joe’s, and VCU remained in the hunt. However, the chance to play for the Big Ten program was too much to decline.
“Michigan has the complete package as a school,” he said. “They are a top academic school in the country and they just won the Big Ten last year.”
Taking a prep year this fall at St. Thomas More, Nunez first emerged as a high-major college prospect during the final days of July on the travel circuit. Running with the Born Ready Elite program, Nunez caught Michigan coaches’ eyes, along with many others, after a 39-point performance, one that included nine three-pointers.
