Marshall transfer guard Andrew Taylor just recently committed out of the transfer portal to Head Coach Chris Jans at Mississippi State. Louisville still has one open scholarship left and it will most likely go to a guard. One guard who could fit that bill is North Carolina transfer guard D’Marco Dunn. Dunn, a 6-foot-5 guard considered the Cardinals coming out of high school but ultimately selected the Tar Heels.
Coming out of high school, D’Marco Dunn was a consensus four-star prospect and the No. 4 overall player in the state of North Carolina. He played his high school basketball at Westover High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina after transferring from Arizona.
In two seasons with the Wolverines, Dunn averaged a combined 21.3 points per game. He increased his rebound average from 7.2 rebounds per game to 8.6. Dunn also averaged 2.7 steals per game and led his team to a combined 41-3 record in two seasons. His three-point shot is impressive as well, shooting 45% from behind the arc in his junior season and 35% in his senior season.
He was a winner and joined a winning program at the University of North Carolina, but unfortunately could not find his place in the lineup. In two seasons with the Tar Heels, he averaged a combined 1.9 points per game. Not the same D’Marco Dunn that he was in high school.
Louisville Head Coach Kenny Payne hasn’t reached out to him yet, but it is still possible until he officially commits to a program. He is tall and can score at a high level, which are two things that Kenny Payne likes in his guards. And if he were to reach out to the former ACC guard, Louisville would become one of the premier programs that has reached out to him thus far, joining the likes of Arizona and Texas.
