Last Friday, Kendrick Nunn announced his final five schools he is considering: Illinois, Marquette, Memphis, Ohio State and UCLA (via RealGM.com).

On Tuesday, the guard from Chicago, Ill. said where he will make his official visits, according to ChicagoHoops.com.

Nunn will visit Buzz Williams and Marquette last on his recruiting tour on Oct. 12-14. He will also visit Illinois Sept. 14-16, Memphis Sept. 21-23, UCLA Sept. 28-30 and Ohio State Oct. 5-7.

Kendrick's dad Melvin Nunn told ESPN about why Marquette made the list of five:

Kendrick loves the way Buzz coaches and gives attention to his players. I think he fell in love with Marquette the game we attended. He likes the way Buzz coaches. They're in a great place to continue to win. Coming from a winning program like Simeon, you want to keep that going.

At 6'1", Nunn is considered a combo guard because he lacks the dribbling skills it takes to be a good point guard. He is rated as a 4-star prospect and ranked as the 37th-best player in the 2013 class by Rivals.

Scout.com says of the athletic guard:

One of the better shooting guards in the country, Nunn is a lefty with a great looking outside shot. He is also very tough and takes as much pride in his defense as he does in his offense. Now he is a bit on the short side to be a shooting guard, but his athleticism and length do make up for that.

Nunn committed to Texas A&M in August of 2011; he later decommitted a month-and-a-half later after feeling he had committed too early.
