Teammates Trail, Dunbar want to play together

Michigan has been shopping for talent at Miami (Fl) Booker T. Washington HS. Could they possibly find a two-for-one bargain?

College recruiters shopping for talent at Miami (Fl) Booker T. Washington HS might find themselves a two-for-one special. Four-star defensive end prospect Lynden Trail and three-star wide receiver prospect Quinton Dunbar recently stated that they intend to remain teammates beyond their high school days.

"No doubt. We're gonna stay at the same school," Dunbar told GoBlueWolverine. "Whatever school he goes to I go to, or the other way around. We've been tight since I think the fourth grade."

Trail echoed his teammates sentiments, saying they "most likely" will decide upon the same school.

The 6-2 175-pound Dunbar was an early commit to Miami, but has since rescinded.

"I wanted to give other schools the opportunity and I wanted to make sure it was the right choice," said Dunbar.

Although both Dunbar and Trail said they hope to end up at the same school, their top fives differ slightly. Dunbar listed Florida, Florida State, Miami, Michigan and Arkansas as his front-runners, while Trail has Florida, USC (Southern California), Florida State, Georgia and Miami atop his favorites list.

While the 6-7 200-pound Trail is mainly being recruited for his defensive prowess, some schools have shown interest elsewhere as well.

"Michigan's recruiting me for both sides of the ball, tight end and defensive end," Trail told GBW. "They love my speed and how I get off the ball."

Dunbar said Michigan's successful history – both as a team and with individual wide receivers – make it an attractive destination. Trail, meanwhile, is intrigued by the stage he might play on.

"The Big House. That's just amazing. The stadium with at least 107,000 standing. That's almost worse than being in The Swamp," said Trail, in reference to the Florida Gators' 88,548 capacity home field.

Trail and Dunbar further said they will see the Big House up close and personal when they attend Michigan's June camp. Fellow teammate – four-star running back Eduardo Clements – will be at the camp as well. The trio also plans to attend camps at the University of South Florida, Florida State and Florida.
