H.S. Basketball: UConn offers scholarship to New London's Dunn

NEW LONDON — The national championship-winning UConn men’s basketball team offered a scholarship to New London junior guard Kris Dunn on Friday.

Dunn recently led the Whalers to their ninth state title and was named state player of the year by the Connecticut High School Coaches' Association. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 26 points per game in his junior campaign.

He has already received offers from other notable schools including Boston College and Providence College.

From April 15-17, Dunn shined at the Real Deal in the Rock AAU basketball tournament in Little Rock, Ark., and his team, Connecticut Basketball Club, finished in second place.

“Playing against some of the top players and actually doing good against them showed the media and coaches I could compete with the best,” Dunn said about the tournament.

Dunn has also been invited to the National Basketball Players Association Top 100 High School Camp this summer.

“Right now, I’m just living in the moment,” Dunn said. “I’m not really worried about college coaches. I’m just focusing on AAU right now.”
