"As a linebacker, he moves extremely well from sideline-to-sideline and hits like a truck. His speed helps him on coverage patterns as well. This physical athlete will be an impact player at the next level. As he learns the position, he could emerge as a top linebacker!"

Dunlap did not play defense last year, but watch him this season. Beason recently said Dunlap has the tenacity and instinct to be a quality defender. If so, the Lions' defense will be strong as ever.
''One day we were sitting around watching film and we just came up with it,'' said Dunlap, who led the Lions with 355 yards receiving last season. ``We're both big and physical, and we line up next to each other the whole game. When I see him make a play, I get real pumped up and jump into the play as well. We both do that. We read what we're doing and just play.''

"He (Darby) was real happy about it," he said. "We have talked about going together and when Miami offered, that means we could both go. I'd say it's gonna be out of Miami and Florida."

"They really liked it up there," said Chaminade coach Mark Guandolo. "I know [Dunlap] really felt comfortable up there and I think he kind of wanted to get away a little bit. N.C. State is getting two good players from us."

John Dunlap Chaminade -- 22 catches 307 yards 14ypc 7 TDs
Second-ranked Hollywood Chaminade (13-1) completed a dominating playoff run with a 27-0 victory over No. 1 ranked Madison County (12-1-1) in a Class 2A state championship game that gave referees nearly as much TV time as the players. First-time champion Chaminade overcame 19 penalties thanks to its defense and shifty halfback Alex Broomfield. The 5-8, 185-pound senior danced for 120 yards on 19 carries - not including a 62-yard run nullified by an illegal block. But first Broomfield surprised the Cowboys with a perfectly-thrown 24-yard halfback option pass to John Dunlap for the game's first score. Dunlap had two TD catches. "After two tries at this, winning is great," said Lions Coach Mark Guandolo. Madison was seeking its second title in three seasons, but was penalized 20 times for 165 yards to break dubious FHSAA finals records. The Cowboys crossed midfield eight times, but were stopped on fourth down at the 22 early, missed a 28-yard field goal try and dropped what would have been a certain touchdown pass. Chaminade, which lost 6-0 to Jacksonville Bolles in last season's 2A final, routed its first three playoff opponents this year 42-0, 49-7 and 42-14.
Four recruits will visit UF this weekend
As for Dunlap, Florida will have to hope the last impression is the best one. The Gainesville visit will be Dunlap's last, following trips to Miami and North Carolina State. Chaminade-Madonna Prep coach Mark Guandolo said Dunlap plans to make his final decision early next week. The athletic Dunlap also played wide receiver in high school.
ANOTHER ONE GETS AWAY
"He said he pretty much had made up his mind going in," said Mark Guandolo, Dunlap's coach at Chaminade Madonna College Prep. "He was comfortable with the players and with the coaches [at NC State], and I think he wanted to get away from home a little bit, too."

"He's 6-3, 225 pounds, so he's a physical specimen," Guandolo said. "He's got great explosion and soft hands."
