The class of 2020 continues to see various names pop onto local, regional, and national recruiting lists with each passing month.  With many sophomores having taken a quality step forward since last season, prospects across the country are already making their presence felt with high quality performances early this season.  One such talent who you can expect to see bloom substantially over the next 12-24 months is forward William Dunn of Quincy (MI).

Equipped with a long wiry 6-8 plus 200 pound frame and a 7 foot plus wingspan, Dunn obviously passes the look test for Division 1 schools but the physical traits aren’t the only intriguing part of this emerging sophomore as his ability to shoot the basketball is advanced and when you pair that with his frame it makes for a potentially elite prospect with a high ceiling to develop into.  Dunn handles it well for his size, he has a solid feel for the game on both ends, he can finish at all three levels, and he passes the ball well for a big man.  Still developing obviously and raw in some areas, Dunn is already off to a strong start this season as his 26 point 12 rebound performance in a victory last night will attest.  

Make no mistake, this young man is just getting started and schools like Michigan State, Xavier, Michigan, Butler, Davidson, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, etc. are already kicking the tires on him.  When you consider the physical traits combined with the early skill package he already possesses, Dunn could very well become one of the bigger stories in the Midwest over the next couple of years as he develops both physically and skill wise.  One thing that’s for certain is Dunn is a legitimate Division 1 prospect who stands to see a lot of low, mid, and high major schools jump on his recruiting trail over the next couple of years.
