Nunge is the second Class of 2017 player the UE coaching staff has offered while at the Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis; Cloverdale High School guard Cooper Neese also drew an offer from the Aces this weekend.
Already 6-foot-9 going into his junior year of high school, Nunge projects to be a stretch forward at the college level. He averaged 13.1 points and 6.2 rebounds for Castle last season while knocking down 26 of 68 3-point attempts (38 percent).
Evansville is the first school known to have offered a scholarship to Nunge.
