Three-star athlete Patrick Nunn signed his national letter of intent today. The 6-3, 206 lb wide receiver/safety is unsure what side of the ball he will be playing on for the Cougars, but with his size and abilities it will be tough for the coaching staff to make a decision.
According to 247Sports.com Nunn has tallied 64 receptions for for 876 yards for 9 touchdowns. On the ground he also added another 9 carries for 83 yards and two touchdowns.
With the measurable’s like former receiver Isaiah Johnson-Mack, the receiver could step in and play a role sooner than originally thought now that the Cougars have lost two receivers in Johnson-Mack and Tavares Martin. Nunn has a large frame and has impressed at his camps he attended over the past summer with his ability to be physical and go up and get the ball.
He joins a 2018 recruiting class that includes five other receivers and is the only one listed as an athlete.
Nunn picked Washington State over offers from Wyoming, UNLV, Nevada, San Jose State, Fresno State, and Hawaii
At 6’3” and 200 pounds, Nunn has ideal size for an outside receiver in the Air Raid. Not the speediest of receivers in this class, but he uses his body well by boxing out smaller defenders and outplaying them to a ball in the air. Very good on sideline routes and shows a knack for getting a foot down before going out of bounds. Will need to work on his burst coming off the line, as it looks a bit sluggish. Considering his size and the spate of receivers WSU has coming in with this class, it’s not hard to envision a potential position switch to the defensive side of the ball. Nunn’s skills and athleticism could translate to the Nickel position or a move to strong safety.
