Born on March 18, 1994, this twenty-one year old future professional has a history of continuous success on the hardwood dating back to the time he dished out assists for New London High School in Connecticut.
During his time as a dominant high school player, Dunn, in his junior year, averaged 26.5 points per game, pulled down ten rebounds, stole the ball from unsuspecting opponents five times each game and dished out five assists per game to teammates.
That great season was followed by one that was even better. As a senior in the 2011-2012 Season, Kris Dunn led his high school team to a dazzling 27-0 record and a second place finish in the State Championship game.
His decision to attend Providence University may have had a lot to do with its proximity to his home, his family and his friends. He probably also liked the fact that the University of Providence Friars are members of the powerful Big East Conference, a “league” that gets lots of national attention, TV exposure and a chance to send as many as five, six or more teams to the “March Madness” tournament every year.
Since joining the University of Providence Friars, this dynamic and exciting player has gotten lots of attention from professional scouts and media. There are lots of reasons why that has happened. Dunn’s production has been eye-opening.
Although he has suffered shoulder injuries in each of his first two seasons that have limited the number of games in which he was able to play, Dunn has still managed to collect lots of honors.
He was selected to the All-Big East Team for 2015; was named co-Defensive Player of the Year for the 2014-3015 Season and perhaps,, most impressive of all, was cited as the Big East Co-Player of the Year for 2015.
Not surprisingly, Kris Dunn, upon leaving high school in 2012, was selected to the McDonald’s All-American team.
This young man can play basketball at the highest of levels. He has proven his worth at the University of Province where he has shown floor leadership and dynamic playing ability.
Scouts for National Basketball Association (NBA) teams have taken notice. The word is out that Kris Dunn can be a game-changing Point Guard, a true difference maker. He is still at Providence and will very likely remain there until he receives his diploma.
But when this great player decides to “try the pro game,” he figures to have many suitors and one lucky team that will get his name on a contract.
