Illinois, Marquette on Nunn's trimmed college list

There were no real surprises when Kendrick Nunn announced his final college school list.
As first reported by Joe Henricksen of the Chicago Sun-Times, Nunn has narrowed his list down to Illinois, Marquette, Memphis, Ohio State and UCLA, in no particular order.
In addition to those five schools, Nunn also held offers from DePaul, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Providence and Texas A&M.
Henricksen spoke with Nunn's father, Melvin, about what his son was looking for in a school.
According to Melvin, Kendrick will set up visits before narrowing his list to two or three schools, and then decide.
According to Henricksen's report, Melvin also said his son will be looking at 1) the make-up of the roster; 2) a strong relationship with the coaching staff; 3) the team's style of play; and 4) a winning program while making his decision.
Nunn most recently picked up a scholarship offer from Thad Matta and Ohio State, and has expressed interest in staying close to home (Illinois, Marquette). He has a desire to visit UCLA's campus before ultimately making his decision, and Memphis' up-tempo style of play will factor in as well.
Nunn de-committed from Texas A&M in September 2011 and has seen his stock rise since winning his third straight state championship with Jabari Parker and Steve Taylor for Simeon Career Academy.
He also enjoyed a successful AAU summer after competing with Team USA, where he won a gold medal at the FIBA U-17 Championships.
