Three At The Top

Los Angeles (Calif.) Verbum Dei receiver Reggie Dunn (5-10, 170) is still very wide open when it comes to college, but he maintains three schools at the top of his list. He's hearing from a number of top tier programs but needs to secure some offers.

"Arizona, USC and UCLA are probably the top three schools," said Dunn.

Earlier reports had said that Dunn held a scholarship offer from Arizona, but he cleared that up.

"It got messed up. They never really offered me. So I don't have any offers," said Dunn. "Basically, schools want to see my transcripts. I'm not ready to send them out yet because I had some work to do. I may send them from this quarter or wait until later."

Other schools who have been keeping a close watch on Dunn include Washington and Oregon.

When the recruiting process started, Dunn was being recruited as a corner. But outstanding showings at several camps (and he's been to plenty this spring) has catapulted Dunn into the mix at receiver.

"I'm pretty much getting recruited just as a receiver now," said Dunn. " I'll play defense this year, but I'm going to play receiver (in college)."

A week after recording a 4.44 on UCLA's notoriously slow field, Dunn was at USC on Sunday, and clocked his personal best time. "I just got back from USC and I ran a 4.28," said Dunn. "That's my fastest time this spring. I ran a 4.35 at your guys' (the Scout.com) camp."

A good comparison for Dunn is incoming UCLA receiver Terrence Austin. Similar in build, Dunn is faster, and while Austin is the master of running sharp routes, Dunn also has earned a reputation as a crisp route runner.

Dunn is planning to attend the USC Rising Seniors Camp and said he was still hoping that he was going to be at the B2G Elite Football Program in two weeks.

During his junior season, Dunn had 13 catches for 330 yards and four touchdowns, rushed for 324 yards and 4 touchdowns and had 47 tackles and three interceptions in 2005. Dunn said he was going to take the SAT in the fall.
