Jack Nunge is a strong, physical big man that excelled in his role at Xavier for the past couple of seasons.  He started out playing at Iowa before transferring to Xavier, and he helped lead the Musketeers to win the NIT last season. 

Nunge is a high-motor player that excels at making plays in the paint. On the other hand, he’s been impacted by injuries, so he may not be as athletic as he was before, and he also is an older prospect, so a combination of those things may limit his upside as a prospect for the league. Still, Nunge’s ability to make hustle plays and plays in the paint could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA.
