It took just one visit for former Louisville forward Angel Nunez to decide where he would finish his collegeiate career. Nunez will transfer to Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. He made it official last night while on a visit to the school.
I spoke with Angel’s former youth coach, Eric Martinez, earlier this morning who talked briefly about Nunez’s decision to become a Gonzaga Bulldog.
“It’s a fresh start for Angel and that is exactly what he needs,” Martinez said via phone. “Angel just felt comfortable. He’ll enroll in school right away, do a year of residency and be eligible during the 2014 spring semester,” says Martinez. “It wasn’t anything against Louisville and Coach Pitino, Angel just needed a fresh start.”
Gonzaga wasn’t where I imagined Nunez would end up, but I wish him nothing but the best. He’s a great kid and Gonzaga will fit his style of play.
