Dunn: "One of the best trips ever"

Wendell Dunn, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound outside linebacker out of Miami (Fla.) Palmetto, is going to make two more official visits before making his final decision on college. Those schools have their work cut out for them because Dunn said the trip he made to Winston-Salem in late September for the Duke game left a "lasting impression" on him.

"It was one of the best trips ever," said Wendell Dunn on his official visit to Wake Forest. "It was just very fun to meet the players and the coaches. They have a beautiful campus. I fell in love with it. I'd have to say [Wake Forest] is my top school.

"My player host was Deandre Martin. He's from Miami too so we had a lot in common. The others players I met were very open and friendly. I liked them a lot. My dad was with me [on the visit]. He loved it. I think he appreciated all of the love the coaches were showing me. They treated us well."

The Palmetto Lancers finished the season 4-7, but were 0-4 in the district failing to make the playoffs.

"We had 11 starter injured or kicked off the team," Dunn stated. "I thought I had a good season. I played with tremendous disciple concentrating on my job only. In the past, I was too worried about other people's assignments and played wide-open, kind of like you play street ball. Playing linebacker you need to have faith in the other players. I feel like I did well staying focused and making plays. If you look at my senior film, you're not going to find too many errors.

"When [Wake Forest] offered me, Coach (Derrick) Jackson told me he loved my athleticism, range, arm width, and how I get after the ball sideline-to-sideline. I think I kept improving in all of those areas this season."

Dunn has scheduled official visits to UCF on November 24th and UConn on December 3rd. He expects to make a decision soon after his last visit.

A four year starter at Palmetto, Dunn was selected to play in the pretigious Under Armour All-American game in January.
