Austin Nunez Making the Most of Opportunities


2020 has been different for the whole world.

Certain parts of the country are still on lock down, some kids are still at home learning virtually and some scholastic seasons are on pause. It’s caused some schools and conferences to cancel their entire seasons, some to postpone or push back start dates. For some who have started their seasons and even district play; have had to deal with the challenges of quarantining, cancellations, rescheduling just to try and have a season. It’s been tough to say the least; but for some they are being creative.

Despite pandemic, game cancellations; One of the top players in the state of Texas in the class of 2022 Austin Nunez is making the most of his opportunities. He recently took the floor in a showcase in Dallas with the TACA Storm where he performed well in 2 games including a buzzer beater to win in the finale. The event was loaded with numerous next level prospects. This was perfect being that Austin is very competitive. Next stop;  Ryan Silver’s League on the West Coast. 

   Mr. Silver has put together a league on the west coast that will have some of the nation’s best teams and players playing in the league. One of the top players in state of Texas in class of 22 Austin Nunez is taking advantage of this platform. Nunez who is sitting this scholastic season out due to transfer rules is no stranger to the National circuit. He has played on the Under Armour circuit with Texas Hardwork; soon to be JL3 on the EYBL circuit as well as most recently playing with the National Prep team at Cornerstone Christian School.

“ I’m just looking forward to competing and getting some game action under my belt”.

Austin hasn’t been totally idle; He spends a ton of time in the gym working on skill development with several trainers as well as doing some strength and conditioning to stay sharp. He has noticeably put on a few pounds and stretched out some as well which bodes well for him as he prepares for the upcoming grind. 

  Austin has a slew of D1 offers from various conferences. The most recent have come from Oregon, Texas A&M, Texas, Arkansas and Virginia.
