He attended New London High School in New London, Connecticut; he was one of the most dominating point guards in high school basketball. He announced his intention to attend Providence College in August 2011. On February 1, 2016, he was named one of 10 finalists for the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award. He was named to the 35-man midseason watchlist for the Naismith Trophy on February 11.
Coach Ed Cooley is working to improve his shooting stroke and has struggled at times with turnovers, but his defense and effectiveness as a distributor have put Dunn on track to be a 2016 lottery pick.
