At the end of last month, one of VCU’s key starters announced that he would enter the transfer portal as the Rams’ head coach left to take the head job at Penn State. Over three weeks later, Jayden Nunn has come out of the other side of the NCAA transfer portal as a member of the Baylor Bears men’s basketball program.

Nunn, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound guard from Flint, Michigan, took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. He affirmed his transfer to the Big 12 program. Nunn spent the 2022-23 season with the Rams, shooting 43.3 percent from the floor and 40.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Nunn appeared in 35 games this past season with the Rams. He averaged 9.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 steals per game in those contests. Nunn also shot 70 percent from the free-throw line, as well.

In VCU’s lone 2023 NCAA Tournament game — a 63-51 loss to the Saint Mary’s Gaels — Nunn scored nine points on 3-of-10 shooting and added nine rebounds. The game prior, to VCU’s Atlantic-10 Championship victory over Dayton, Nunn had five points, six rebounds, and three assists.

The Bears went into the transfer portal and were able to bring in a diverse shot-maker to Waco.
