What Has Been Said:

NC Top 80 Event:

– The “Kinston Pipeline” will continue for another four years. Let’s just say this, “Damian Dunn has a chance to be really special.” In our opinion, Damian has the total package. He combines size, athleticism, skill and youth. He’s only going to continue to get better over time and that’s a scary thought for his opposition. Coach Carrier stated, “Damian is a shot maker, he scores from all three levels on the court. He takes advantage over smaller wings by utilizing his sheer strength and mobility.” In addition, he’s a versatile defender and toughness is his calling call. Damian has all the ingredients to be the next “great prospect” out of Kinston. Without question, he is the real deal.

– Dunn is a natural player, with a feel for scoring the ball. His shot off the bounce, while unorthodox, is almost automatic. He has a similar game (and shot release) to Austin Rivers. Only a freshman, with this type of poise and skill set, it will be fun watching him grow.
