Louisville involved with top 2012 PG

In an unimpressive point guard class nationally, Kris Dunn is establishing himself this summer as one of the best players at the position in the Class of 2012. That's why Big East and ACC schools, including Louisville, are in pursuit of the athletic, 6'3, 185-pound point guard from New London, CT.

In an unimpressive point guard class nationally, Kris Dunn is establishing himself this summer as one of the best players at the position in the Class of 2012.

That's why Big East and ACC schools, including Louisville, are in pursuit of the athletic, 6'3, 185-pound point guard from New London, CT.

Besides Louisville, Georgetown, UConn, Providence, Pittsburgh, Marquette, Georgia Tech, Texas, and others are eyeing Dunn this summer, who participated in the NBA Top 100 Camp. Dunn, though, has no visits planned and doesn't seem ready to narrow the focus of his recruitment.

"I'm interested in the ACC and Big East," Dunn said. "It's great competition and some of the best players go to the Big East and ACC and have a chance to play in the NBA."

As for Louisville, Dunn has spoken with Rick Pitino, who informed him the Cards will be watching his progress during the July evaluation period.

"Rick Pitino called me and told me he's looking for a combo guard because Peyton [Siva] might be going to the league next season," Dunn said. "He told me he's going to be recruiting me hard this year."

"[Louisville] is a great school and Rick Pitino is one of the best coaches ever," Dunn added. "They're in the mix. I'm not sure if they've offered a scholarship but I think they have."

Dunn is eager to show college coaches next month that he's one of the top available point guards in his class.

"The only thing I have to do better is decision making," Dunn said. "I can attack the rim and get other people involved. I want to show coaches next month leadership and that I can run a team, get everybody involved and win."
