Dunn Looking Forward to UNC Visit

Randall Dunn will receive his first in-depth look at North Carolina this coming weekend with his official visit to the campus.

"I'm anxious to pretty much see what's going to go on down there," Dunn said. "Because it's not a school that I even think had an interest in me until they offered me. I'm just looking forward to seeing what they're about."

Dunn, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound wide receiver from Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes, returned from Virginia Tech Tuesday and has also officially visited Connecticut. He'll take what is looking like his final official trip during the weekend of February 2nd to West Virginia.

"I'm trying to consider a fifth one for a last visit, but I'm not sure about time," Dunn said. "UVa, they want me to squeeze in a visit really bad."

Dunn's Ocean Lakes teammate, Marcus Davis, is also officially visiting UNC this weekend. The duo has also taken official visits to UConn and VT together. While they have talked about attending the same school, they don't consider themselves a packaged deal.

"It would be nice to be somewhere together, but he has to do what's best for himself as do I for myself," Dunn said.

UNC assistant coach Kenny Browning first initiated contact with Dunn right before Christmas break and continued communication after the dead period.

"The whole thing was, at first they weren't even taking another receiver," Dunn said. "And then they saw my film and they liked it. One guy [on the team] moved from receiver to running back. So a wide receiver spot opened up and they would like me to fill it."

UNC promptly extended a scholarship offer to Dunn, joining a pile of grants that also include Connecticut, Penn State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and West Virginia.

It appears, though, that it will be difficult to pluck Dunn out of the Old Dominion State State.

"Virginia Tech is my leader," Dunn said. "[I like] just the whole vibe that I got from them over the weekend. They were already leading before, but it all came together [on the visit]."

Dunn said he is looking at a Signing Day decision announcement.

"With every school you know the education that's you're going to get," Dunn said. "Most of the schools close to Virginia are nationally ranked at the top. So I'm just looking for where I fit in their offense and have a need at receiver."

Dunn caught 36 catches for 880 yards and 13 touchdowns on his way to setting several Ocean Lakes receiving records during his senior season.
