Bears Leading for San Diego Standout

San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln athlete Davon Dunn (6-0, 180) teamed up with good friend Kenny Stills for a weekend road trip that took him through the Golden State.

"They all went good and it was real cool," said Dunn. "Me and Kenny had a lot of fun at Fresno State, Cal and UCLA."

Dunn, a three-star receiver by, started the visit at his father's alma mater, Fresno State.

"At Fresno State, I met with Coach Pat Hill and Coach (Keith) Williams," said Dunn. "I'd been up there before since my dad (David Dunn) played up there, but it was real cool at Fresno."

The next day, they took to Berkeley for a visit to Cal.

"I had a lot of fun especially at Cal," said Dunn. "We met with Coach (Jeff) Tedford and Coach (Kevin) Daft. We also talked with the academic coordinators and the recruiting directors."

The familiarity with Dunn and Tedford runs deep.

"Coach Tedford was the offensive coordinator at Fresno State when my dad played there so we've known him for a long time," said Dunn.

Finally, the trip concluded considerably closer to home with a visit to UCLA.

"We met with Coach (Rick) Neuheisel, Coach (Tim) Hundley and Coach (Reggie) Moore," said Dunn. "That was my first time up there to UCLA. They said an offer could be coming as a defensive back."

Dunn, though, said he's hoping to play receiver in college, in the slot, while a couple of schools have offered him as a defensive back.

"I'd rather play receiver, but I'm open to anything," said Dunn.

While camps were going on at each of the schools, Dunn sat them out, still nursing a lingering hamstring injury.

"I'm still having some hamstring problems, but I will work out at the UCLA camp on June 23rd (the final day of it), and then we are playing in a passing tournament at USC on the 20th of June, so I hope to be ready by then," said Dunn.

Dunn has double-digit offers, from Washington State, Nevada, Washington, Boise State, Fresno State, San Diego State, Arizona, Cal, Colorado State and Colorado. And Cal stands out as the leader.

"They are my top school right now," said Dunn.

During his junior year, Dunn reached the end zone 29 times, 17 on the ground, eight through the air and four on returns.

Academically, he has a 3.0 GPA and scored a 1380 on the SAT.
