Sumter (S.C.) star offensive line prospect Kyle Nunn has received an official offer from N.C. State and is drawing very serious interest from a number of programs in the ACC and SEC, respectively.

“Kyle has received one offer and that’s from North Carolina State, but the boy gets about 10 pieces of mail a day and that’s just here,” Sumter head coach Paul Sorrells said. “It seems like everybody has contacted him. He’s 6-6, 275 pounds, and he can dunk a basketball. He’s an athlete. He’s got those long arms everybody’s looking for. He’s got great feet and, on top of all that stuff, he’s got a mean streak. I think he’s a heck of a talent. They just don’t make a lot like him.”

Virginia assistant coach Levern Belin was one of three coaches to go to Sumter High School last week to evaluate Nunn. A whole lot more are expected to come through before the end of May.

“Coach Reeves from USC came in, a coach from Middle Tennessee State came in and a coach from Virginia came in,” Nunn said. “I hadn’t really heard from Virginia and then they just showed up at our school.”

The University of South Carolina, on the other hand, has been active in this recruiting process for some time. As have Auburn, Clemson and Virginia Tech, all of which have invited Nunn to their respective summer camps.

“USC wants me to come to their mini camp so they can see what I’m like athletically and physically,” Nunn said. “Virginia Tech, Auburn and Clemson also want to see me at camp. I’m definitely going to Virginia Tech’s (he attended spring practice earlier this spring). Virginia Tech basically said they would offer me if I went to camp there. Coach Wiles told me they want to see me move in person. He said they liked what they’ve seen on film.”

Nunn, who feels he could end up at any of the offensive line positions on the next level, had a solid junior season but expects a breakout senior year.

“My junior season was all right,” Nunn said. “It could have been better. Everything could always be better. I’m always trying to improve my game and make it better. I’m really trying to put more weight on and I’m trying to work on my footwork.”

He is hoping to have made his collegiate decision by the end of the summer.

“I’d like to commit before my season starts,” Nunn said.
