DUNN DEAL TAR HEELS

"I didn’t see a better fit than North Carolina, so I went ahead and gave the coaches a call." - D'Marco Dunn

D’Marco Dunn, a 6’4 four star shooting guard from Westover High, in Fayetteville, chose to commit to the University of North Carolina today. He chose UNC over Texas, Clemson , Vanderbilt, Arizona,Louisville and Georgia. He will join fellow North Carolinian and 2021 commit Dontrez styles and if done right these two will be a dangerous duo.


When talking about why he chose UNC Dunn says: “Coach (Roy) Williams kept in close contact with me and laid out for me how I would project in his system. I did a lot of my own research too. They want me to come in and shoot and score and when you look at it, shooters excel in their system.”and “I didn’t see a better fit than North Carolina, so I went ahead and gave the coaches a call.” I think this is a super powerful quote from him because when I see a guy with this much confidence that someplace is right for him there's no doubt in my mind he will be successful there.

Why does he fit so well at UNC? Well Dunn is the definition of a UNC Shooting guard. They are going to get a guy that works well in their system and matches their tenacity.  Dunn plays extremely well off the ball by constantly cutting, moving to open space and setting off ball screens. This allows him to score consistent catch and shoot baskets from both mid range and behind the arc. He also is an extremely physical player on both ends of the floor and will be able to guard any ACC guy on the defensive end along with taking them to the rack on the offensive end. He averaged 20.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2 assists per game while leading Westover to a perfect 30-0 and the state co-champion title. Dunn looks to bring that same team and individual success to UNC.
