CARSON, Calif.- The point guard position is wide open in the class of 2012, pretty much everybody knows this. Even if everybody doesn't know, Kris Dunn is aware that a move can be made at that position.
So far this spring, the 6-foot-2 point guard from New London (Conn.) High is doing everything he can do make his leap into the upper echelon of floor generals.
"I'm just trying to show people that I can play at this high level," Dunn told Rivals.com at the Pangos All-American camp Friday night. "I'm just trying to get more exposure and show everybody including college coaches that I can play."
An athletic kid with long arms, Dunn thrives in pick and roll situations. Back off and he'll hit the jumper, play him to close and he's on his way by you to the rim.
He also defends and has a scorers mentality that allows him to play off the ball if needed.
"I feel like I can play both guard positions equally well," said Dunn. "If somebody needs me to play point, I can do that. If they need me to play the two I can do that too."
Since hitting the grassroots scene with Connecticut Basketball Club this spring, Dunn's recruitment has taken off. He's got Big East, Ivy League and ACC interest but noted UConn, Providence and Marquette as three that currently stand out in terms of the attention they are showing him.
Rumored to be on the move for his senior season, Dunn says that discussions about a potential college destination or high school switch will wait until after the summer.
"We haven't decided any of that yet," said Dunn. "After the summer me and my family will sit down together and decide what's best for me."
