OSU in ESPN 100 guard Nunn's top five

Ohio State is coming on late for Chicago Simeon shooting guard Kendrick Nunn, who is ranked No. 54 in the ESPN 100.

The senior released Friday a list of five schools he was considering to attend -- in alphabetical order, they are Illinois, Marquette, Memphis, Ohio State and UCLA.

On Ohio State: "For some reason, we didn't hear from them for 18 months," his father Melvin Nunn said to ESPNChicago.com. "I guess they liked the way they performed. They were trying to find a way to love him. Kendrick always had interest in Ohio State. He was just going to let his game do the talking. He got a call from them and offered. He loves Ohio State, and he won't get into, 'Where were you guys two years ago?' They got in before it's too late."
