Brionte Dunn sets the record straight

Five-Star running back Brionte Dunn out of Glen Oak high in Canton Ohio talks about the direction of his recruitment. Is he still committed to Ohio State? How does he feel about Michigan? Will he visit other schools? Find out inside.

The last few days have been trying for Canton Ohio's Brionte Dunn The five-star tailback has been committed to Ohio State for months, but recently expressed a desire to look around That desire was misrepresented in story earlier this week as a decommitment Despite his reluctance to do any interviews in the aftermath of that experience, he took the time out chat with GoBlueWolverine so he can let everyone know exactly what is going on with his recruitment

Said Dunn, "I was recently interviewed, and it was put out there that I had de-committed from Ohio State, and that is not the truth at all I am still committed to Ohio State I never said I was not I am just setting the record straight I didn't like that it was put out that I was not committed because I am "

With that said, in light of of the NCAA scrutiny the Buckeyes are facing currently, Dunn and his family feel it's even more necessary to at least take a look at other schools

"I just want to keep my options open just to see what is out there," he said "I believe visiting other schools will allow me to see what else is out there " He already has one school in mind that he wants to visit soon

"Michigan is a school that I am interested in My dad would like me to visit and I would like to see what they have to offer as well I used to watch Mario Manningham play Man, he was a beast out on the field with the way he played "

The Michigan coaching staff has made it clear to Dunn that they see him as a beast in his own right They began aggressively recruiting the talented youngster months ago, and their persistence hasn't waned

"Coach Hoke offered me He told me that they have watched tape on me and would like for me to play at Michigan I also spoke with Coach Fred Jackson, and he said that they were looking for running backs and like the way I played -- he wants me to come and visit "

Dunn expects Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison to visit his school today (Thursday) And he hopes to return the favor in the not too distant future "I am trying to come up on Saturday to visit," Dunn reported "If not then, real soon "
