A few months ago, Kendrick Nunn thought that he'd gotten the recruiting process out of the way early.
He took an August visit to Texas A&M, connected with the staff and liked the campus so he committed.
But, after getting back home and reflecting on things, the Chicago (Ill.) Simeon junior guard decided that he'd rushed the process a bit. So, a few weeks ago, he re-opened his recruitment.
"I committed because it was my first unofficial and I liked it down there and it felt good," Nunn told Rivals.com. "So I thought it would be a good idea.
"Then a couple of months later I realized that it was a little too early for me and that I needed to look at other schools."
Since word got out that the 6-foot-3 Nunn who ranks No. 18 nationally in the class of 2013 was available, he's had no shortage of attention.
In addition to A&M, Nunn says he's heard from the likes of Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Kansas, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Illinois, Ohio State and DePaul among others.
According to Nunn, the coaches showing interest will see a much better player. Where he's been strictly a two guard in the past, he's working to be more of a combo guard.
"I've gotten much better with my ball handling," said Nunn. "I'm trying to be more of a point guard and I'm working more on my defense. I think that's going to be real important going forward.
"My jumper is coming along and I'm starting to get better with my off hand."
Now open to explore other options, Nunn cautions that he'll be taking his time with picking a school this time around.
"I'm being more patient with my decision," said Nunn. "I think I'll wait until after my senior year probably."
