Angel Nunez should be a name that is somewhat familiar with UK fans. He was amongst several prospects scheduled to attend UK’s Big Blue Madness earlier this Fall. However, Nunez had a scheduling conflict which kept him from being able to make the trip. While talking to Nunez today, he revealed that he has now rescheduled that trip and will be in Lexington on January 2nd for UK’s matchup with in-state rival Louisville.
Nunez is currently ranked as the #11 small forward and #47 overall prospect by Rivals.com.
This trip provides an interesting dynamic because both schools are currently recruiting Nunez. Obviously this prospect’s recruitment isn’t going to do anything to improve Pitino and Calipari’s relationship, which is anything but lubby dubby at this point anyways. Nunez does not currently hold an offer from the Cats but it’s pretty obvious that the Cats are interested in getting this young man in blue & white in future.
*I’ll be posting the rest of the highlights from my interview with Angel tomorrow.
