Kendrick Nunn Parents: Meet Kimberly Harris and Melvin Nunn
Professional basketball player Kendrick Nunn was born to his parents Kimberly Harris (mother) and Melvin Nunn (father).
Prior to his junior year at Texas A&M in August 2011, Nunn made a verbal commitment to the school, but approximately two months later he declared his intention to restart his recruiting process.
This decision was a result of Kendrick’s sense of having committed too early, according to his father Melvin.
