Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) senior wide receiver Randall Dunn , a 6-3, 212-pound prospect that has risen fast on the recruiting scene this fall, made an unofficial visit to the University of Virginia for Saturday’s game versus Wake Forest. It was his first game experience at Virginia, which is one of three major Division 1A programs to extend an official offer.
“It was a really good experience,” said Dunn, who visited with his parents. “It was a really loud stadium. I liked how the people believe in their team. I was mad because we had to leave early, so I missed the comeback. Virginia was losing when we left.”
Was there one main highlight from the experience? Was there anything he didn’t like?
“Everything really was good,” Dunn said. “The people there were great. The people I met were really nice. I didn’t talk to the coaches, but I met with the guy that showed us around. And the crowd helped me out when I had questions. The highlight was the game. I’ve never seen so many people act like that. On 3rd down on defense, they would just erupt.”

Prior to Saturday’s visit, Virginia Tech, which has also offered, was the favorite in this race. This likely remains the case, but Dunn still has yet to make a trip to Blacksburg. He had hoped to attend this Saturday’s game versus Florida State, but Ocean Lakes will face Bethel on Saturday in the Division 6, Eastern Region playoffs.
“I mean, I’m not going to make any decisions right now,” Dunn said. “After I go to Virginia tech, I will compare [Virginia Tech and Virginia]. I’ll know my likes and dislikes.”
At this point, Dunn says he would like to make all five official visits before committing anywhere. He says his official visit dates will likely come in December. He is close to setting his first one, which would be to Connecticut (offer), and he indicated plans to set trips to Virginia and Virginia Tech as well.
In addition to the offers he does have, Dunn could be close to receiving another in the very near future.
“I’m pretty sure I’m about to receive an offer from UNC within the next couple of weeks,” Dunn said. “Their coaches were real excited to talk to me. They had...
