Amidst the Pac-10 expansion madness where Utah was left out of rumors, Ute fans needed some good news... and they got it.
WR Reggie Dunn out of Compton C.C. committed to Oregon State in 2007, but is now heading to Utah after the Beavers grew tired of his academic issues. He was listed at a four-star WR by Scout and Rivals. Scout ranked him the 48th best receiver coming out of high school and Rivals ranked him No. 28.
The 5'10" 185 pound speedy running back ran an official 4.35 forty at a Nike Camp in Los Angeles where he took top honors. He also runs a 4.28 at the USC camp.
Dunn held offers from Oregon State, Utah and Kansas State after spending a year at Compton. In high school he held offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Washington as well.
He is a friend Utah CB Lamar Chapman, who said Dunn "is the real deal."
According to an article by The Salt Lake Tribune, Dunn is expecting to join the Utes in the summer. He should compete for the starting job with a plethora of talent that is coming to Utah at WR this fall.
Dunn becomes the Utes' third 4-star WR in the 2010 class to go along with Kenneth Scott and Terrell Reese. Utah also has 3-star JC transfer Martavious Lee and Dres Anderson. The WR battle this Fall should be very interesting with the talent coming in.
Dunn still has three years of eligibility remaining after spending a season at Compton C.C.
