Barnstormers Land Rookie Lineman Kyle Nunn
DES MOINES - Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach and Director of Football Operations Mike Hohensee announced late Thursday that the team has been assigned Offensive Lineman Kyle Nunn on a one-year contract. He becomes the eighth player assigned to the Barnstormers roster for the 2013 season.
Nunn (6-6, 300) joins the Barnstormers after spending time with the New York Jets in their rookie mini-camp. Prior to that he spent 5 seasons at the University of South Carolina (2007-11), where he played for Steve Spurrier. After redshirting his freshman year, Nunn made over 20 career starts at Offensive Tackle. More importantly he was part of a unit that led the Gamecocks to back to back 10 win seasons in 2010 and 2011. Nunn was also a key player in South Carolina's Capital One Bowl victory following his senior season.
"Kyle will be a great addition to our offensive line", stated Hohensee. "Not only is he big, but he can move fast. He's also overcome a lot of adversity in his life which has made him strong mentally as well." Nunn is among a group of 35 players who will be invited to the Barnstormers training camp this spring.
