Played his first two seasons at Cardinal Hayes High School in Bronx, N.Y., before suiting up for the Winchendon School (Mass.) for his junior campaign.
Reminds UofL Coach Rick Pitino of former Cardinal All-American Francisco Garcia with his length and high arching shot like Garcia.
Attended the Winchendon School in 2009-10 and helped his team to a 30-10 record and the quarterfinals of the National Prep Championship. He participated in the 2010 Hoop Group Elite Camp in Reading, Pa., scoring 25 points in his final game.
Averaged 17 points, four rebounds, and three assists per game as a sophomore at Cardinal Hayes. Nunez scored 29 points in a 71-60 loss to Mount St. Michael and 24 (including 19 in the first half) in an 81-64 defeat against Bishop Ford that season.
Earned all-tournament honors in the 15U portion of the 2008 Hoop Group Jam Fest in Pittsburgh while playing for the New York Gauchos AAU team.
Chose the Cardinals after also considering Miami, West Virginia, Rutgers, Florida, Connecticut and Arizona.
Born Dec. 29, 1991 ... Son of Herminia Nunez ... Oldest of four siblings (Thamy, Jason, James) ... Major is communication.
Personal goal at UofL is to "win a national championship and become the best player I can be."
Enjoys swimming in his spare time.
Chose to attend UofL because "it has everything I need to become successful and to become the best person and player I can be."
Few people know that he really likes dancing.
Most proud that he was able to go to college on a scholarship.
Francisco Garcia, Tracy McGrady and Kobe Bryant have had the greatest influence on his athletic career.
Feels Will Smith would be the best actor to play him in a movie.
When he played basketball as a kid, he pretended he was Tracy McGrady.
Wanted to wear No. 1 because his mother got him fade haircuts when he was 10 and people called him Little Penny (Hardaway; 1 was Hardaway's NBA uniform number).
If you walked into his dorm room, the first thing you would notice is his big Francisco Garcia poster.
What impresses him the most about Coach Pitino: "what he has done with players like me in the past and he is a Hall of Fame coach."
Best part about being a Cardinal is the fans.
Would most like to meet Michael Jackson.
