2019 ATH Nunn updates recruitment

2019 ATH Nunn updates recruitment

Stefan Adams
2019 Miami Palmetto ATH Cornelius Nunn was one of the Canes’ most recent offerees in the rising senior class, picking up his offer back when he was on campus for Junior Day in March.

“The last time I visited Miami was when they offered me (on Junior Day),” Nunn said. “I was pretty excited. Me and coach Banda talk here and there. They’re recruiting me as a corner.”

For Nunn, the appeal of the UM program is more than just the general history. Seeing his older peers come through the Miami program and creating the blueprint for the path to success has inspired Nunn.

“Watching Jaquan Johnson, who I’ve looked up to my whole life, that’s like a big brother to me,” Nunn said. “Just the older guys that I’ve grown up with that came to Miami and did their thing. Seeing them have success there makes me comfortable that I could do it too.”

A big season on the field usually gets more recruits interested in joining the program, and Miami showed they took a step forward last season with a Coastal Division title and double-digit wins. However, success for one year doesn’t move the needle much for Nunn and isn’t a factor in his recruitment.

“Well, you know, that’s good for the program, but that doesn’t really do nothing for me,” said Nunn. “I want to go somewhere where I can ball out, get on the field my freshman year.”

Previously naming a top three schools, Nunn has now backed off that and opened things up a bit as he hauls in more and more offers. Georgia and Auburn are some of the most recent schools to pull the trigger on Nunn besides the Canes.

“No, I don’t have a top group. I had a top three, but I don’t have one anymore,” Nunn said. “Auburn is coming after me hard, Nebraska, Kentucky, Syracuse. I’d also have to say Alabama, they’re coming after me, but they haven’t offered yet.”

Nunn will use this upcoming summer to help him see some more campuses and begin narrowing down his list.

“Right now, I’m just busy with spring practice and focused on that, so I’ll be taking more visits in the summer,” Nunn said. “I’m going to visit Georgia, Nebraska, Kentucky, and Alabama.”

He’ll have to take those trips quickly, though: Nunn’s planned decision date is in less than 2 months.

“July 2nd. That’s my mom’s birthday.”

So, what is the 6’0” 175 pounder looking for in a program?

“I’m really looking for a team that really wants me,” Nunn said. “Somewhere that’s going to put me on the field my first year and, as far as school, a place I can go and get good grades so my family doesn’t have to worry about me.”

While Nunn previously played defense and special teams for Miami Palmetto, he’ll add a new role to his cache this upcoming season: wide receiver.

“My junior season went pretty well, 75 tackles, 3 interceptions,” said Nunn. “We finished 8-2 and lost in the second round of the playoffs to Miami Senior High. My senior year, I just want to ball out on both sides of the ball. 5 interceptions or more, and more than 1,000 receiving yards. We trying to win states.”

Why even call it an "offer" Stefan?

i don't mind Nunn, can see him as the 4th or 5th db in this class...But it's obvious he couldn't commit.
 
No real official on actual height/weight. Claims a 4.49--50 and is believable the way he run in game film. Interesting change of recruitment philosophy.
 
Unless this is a major target the only way I give him a look is if he really wants to be a Cane like Bandy.
 
Balling out as a freshman.!? Humm, I don't see that happening at any of those schools he mentioned besides Kentucky and maybe not even there. Those schools are too deep for that non-sense.

He did really want to be a Cane. Big time SEC schools are knocking now though, not sure how much longer he will hold out.

He visited Auburn last week I believe?
 
i'll take a bunch of other guys before him. He's an ok recruit. Palmetto hasnt put out a player since Kimbo Slice.
 
Idk about this kid doesnt seem to be to interested
 
I don't like how he seems to be talking out of both sides of his mouth. I don't see or hear any Cane in him.
 
Guys, he pretty much tried to commit hours after receiving his "Offer" and was told no...You wonder why his interviews are giving mixed signals?
“I’m really looking for a team that really wants me,” Nunn said. “Somewhere that’s going to put me on the field my first year and, as far as school, a place I can go and get good grades so my family doesn’t have to worry about me.”
Very questionable boys & girls. I wish he was asked this one question.
What kind of curriculum are you interested in? Nunn: Oh you know, I’m interested in Diography.
You mean Geography?
Nunn: Yeah?!? That’s the one about shapes right??
🤭Sure........
Nunn: Then yeah cause I like shapes and and I’m good at it.
End of interview
😆

With Stefan conducting the interview I wonder what he feels about this kid? He must be a plan C prospect at this point and I highly doubt he could commit at any time. That could be a reason for his tone regarding Miami.
