ESPNU 100 PG Kris Dunn (New London, Conn./New London) told ESPN senior basketball recruiting analyst Dave Telep on Monday that he was down to just two schools and would be committing to either Connecticut or Providence by week's end.

The news is surprising on a couple of different levels but mostly because Connecticut didn't seem to be recruiting Dunn particularly hard this summer.

Dunn teamed with Andre Drummond (Middletown, Conn./Wilbraham & Monson) on the Connecticut Basketball Club and, as I noted in an earlier blog Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun was hardly a fixture at every one of CBC's games this summer.
