UNC Guard D’Marco Dunn Commits To Penn State Hoops

Mike Rhoades’ recruiting work is just about done.

Former North Carolina guard D’Marco Dunn announced his commitment to Penn State men’s basketball Thursday via Instagram, filling the final scholarship position on the Nittany Lions’ roster.

He’ll arrive in Happy Valley with two years of eligibility remaining.

Dunn, a 6’5″ shooting guard, was a former four-star prospect, per 247Sports. The Tucson, Arizona, native ranked as the No. 4 shooting guard in North Carolina during his recruitment at Westover High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He was also the No. 20-best shooting guard in the country as a prospect in the Class of 2021, according to 247Sports.

Dunn received offers from Texas, Vanderbilt, VCU, and Marquette, among others, but chose the Tar Heels in September 2020.

In his freshman season in Chapel Hill, Dunn appeared in 23 games and averaged one point, 0.3 assists, 0.3 rebounds, and 4.1 minutes per game. The following year, Dunn jumped to 27 appearances and increased his averages to 2.7 points, 0.2 assists, and 0.7 rebounds in 10.3 minutes per game.

Dunn will join fellow UNC teammate Puff Johnson in Happy Valley following his commitment to Rhoades in April. Alongside Johnson, the Nittany Lions’ roster will feature transfers Ace Baldwin Jr., Nick Kern Jr., Zach Hicks, Qudus Wahab, Leo O’Boyle, RayQuawndis Mitchell, and Favour Aire. Kanye Clary, Jameel Brown, and Demetrius Lilley will return to Penn State, and recruit Bragi Gudmundsson will also join the squad.
