Pitt Target Ryan Dunn Recaps Crucial Virginia Official Visit



One of Pitt’s top targets at the wing position, Ryan Dunn, recently took official visits to Pitt and Virginia, two of the schools on his top 8 list which he released back in mid-August.

After his Pitt visit, Dunn recapped the trip with Pittsburgh Sports Now.

“It was way better than what I expected, the facility was nice, the gym, everything,” Dunn said about Pitt. “All the gear, jerseys, everything it was all real nice. It was just different seeing a power five school with everything, but overall, everything was nice at Pittsburgh. It felt like home. I don’t know if I am a city person, but I feel like Coach Capel can be a good coach for me, so if I do decide to go to Pitt, I feel like that can be a good place for me.”

Now, after completing his official visit to Virginia, Dunn once again caught up with PSN to break down how the trip went.

“It was good,” he said about UVA. “The campus was nice, the coaches were cool, it was just fun being on he campus for the very first time. The players were cool, so it was just overall a good experience.”

Dunn’s top eight schools include Pitt, Virginia, Minnesota, Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Maryland, South Carolina, and Boston College

“I think they have all been great visits,” Dunn added. “One thing that was different, [at Virginia] there was more of a different atmosphere. Pitt was kind of, like, city-life, and UVA was kind of like campus life. That is really the only difference for me.”

A 6-foot-7 wing, Dunn was one of the highest risers in the nation this summer. According to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, he is ranked as the No. 95 prospect in the nation, as well as the No. 27 small forward. The New York native will be taking his talents to Perkiomen School for a prep year this year, but soon after that will be on a college campus hooping at the next level.

“I am still weighing all of my options out,” he said. “I can really do both [campus life or city life]. But, maybe leaning a little bit towards campus life. I have kind of always done that my entire life and that would be cool. But, it doesn’t really matter to me.”

Dunn also included that he is still staying in touch with Jeff Capel and that the Pitt staff is still actively pursuing him.

Sounds like Virginia is going to get him because of the campus life.

At least Capel swings ! Maybe you should think back to the Stallings ERA …….. Capel is a great recruiter and a good coach I’m more than confident the Pitt Basketball program will be a top 10 again under Capel . Hail to Pitt
