“Calhoun said he’d seen me play twice and both times he had that same feeling he had when he saw Ray Allen and Rip [Hamilton] and them, like ‘This guy has a chance to do something good,'” Nunez, a Harlem native, said by phone.
A source close to the UConn program confirmed that Calhoun called Nunez earlier Wednesday and made the offer.
“They know enough about him,” said Eric Martinez, Nunez’s mentor. “They know so much about him.”
The 6-foot-8, 184-pound Nunez is a rising junior wing at the Winchendon (Mass.) School who recently transferred from Cardinal Hayes in the Bronx.
