Dunbar is Close To Qualifying

Last February defensive tackle Emmanuel Dunbar signed with the Seminoles. However, it looks like he'll have to wait at least until January to wear the Garnet & Gold. He recently improved enough on his ACT test score that he won't have to go the Junior College route.

"I got a 67 on the ACT test, "The Deerfield Beach standout said. "With my core grade point average, I only need a 68 to qualify. I'm going to take the ACT again in September and I hope to be up in Tallahassee in January."

Dunbar, who currently checks in at 6-foot-4 and 285 pounds, has been working hard on qualifying and he's also been working hard on the field.

"I have been doing a lot studying," he said. "My sister is a teacher and she's been tutoring me. I've also been working in a conditioning program three times a week."

Is he sticking firm with the Noles?

"I'm sticking with Florida State," he said. "I still keep in contact with coach Lilly. I also keep in contact with Trevor Ford and Aaron Jones."

Dunbar is anxious to get a chance to work with his new position coach.

"Coach Haggins is real coach," he said. "He's straight. I'm ready to get to work."

The Broward County standout will watch his Noles in person take on the Canes and the Clemson Tigers in September.

A as senior, he was selected to the first-team all-state team in class 6A competition by recording 112 tackles and 17 sacks.
