A 6-foot-1 guard from Northeast Macon, Darius Dunn already reports a couple of small-schools have offered, and is hoping the big schools come calling this summer.

Dunn’s got an offer from Division II program Columbus State and JuCo program Southern Crescent. He’ll be visiting Columbus State in July.

And although he’s happy to get the first two offers, Dunn isn’t satisfied

“I just want to get some offers from some big colleges,” said Dunn.

He’s got an existing set of skills that’s made him a top-70 prospect in Georgia’s 2019 class, but Dunn is working hard this summer to continue and improve.

“I like to make my teammates better. I work hard on defense, and I’ve got a good mid-range shot,” he said.

“I’ve got to work on my outside shot more. I’ve got to work on my off-ball defense. And I’ve got to work on my verbal communication, like being a leader with my voice.”

Dunn’s junior season at Northeast Macon went well, both team-wise and individually. And he’s looking forward to expand his leadership role during a senior season ahead.

“My role was to be a leader. I feel like we had a good season, we won 18 games. We did pretty good last year,” said Dunn.

“I’m going to be more of a verbal communicator for the team next season, show people what to do. When people do good, tell them they did good, and when they did wrong, show them what they did.”

Before his senior season, though, Dunn has a big July ahead with Macon Bucks 17U.

“We haven’t had that many tournaments yet, but I played good in the ones we have had,” said Dunn. “We’re going to some live periods in July, and I’m excited for those.”
