After narrowing his list to Connecticut and Providence, it didn't take Kris Dunn long to decide which Big East school he will attend.
On Wednesday afternoon, Dunn committed to Providence while on an unofficial visit.
"The Friars are a great place and mad me and my family feel like we were at home," Dunn told Rivals.com.
Dunn emphasized the strong bond he has developed with Head Coach Ed Cooley as a key to him choosing Providence.
"The big reason I chose Providence over any of the other schools is Coach Cooley," he said. "He is a great guy and I believe in what he is doing to build a program that can compete for a national championship.
"He was at my games more than any other head coach, and that showed me how much I important I was to Providence."
Now that Coach Cooley has a top flight point guard in his incoming stable, the plan is for Dunn to direct a fast paced attack.
"It's a great fit for me," said Dunn. "I have a great chance to help Providence win games."
Dunn is the second 2012 Providence commitment along with three-star sharpshooter Joshua Fortune.
One of the big risers in the rankings this summer, Dunn will make another sizeable leap into the five-star range when the new Rivals150 is released on Thursday.
A lengthy 6-foot-3 point guard out of New London (Conn.) High School, Dunn has all the tools of a high level play maker and is also a force on the defensive end.
