Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) wide receiver Randall Dunn finalized his official visit to Virginia Tech and will head to Blacksburg this weekend, but that was not the only big news from yesterday. The 6-3, 215-pound senior also received another scholarship offer, one that seems to have shaken up his list of schools.

Along with fellow teammate and top recruit Marcus Davis, Dunn will head to Virginia Tech on Saturday night immediately following his team’s basketball game. The two plan to return on Monday. The duo will then head to UNC next weekend and, Dunn says, follow that up with a trip to West Virginia, which is the latest school to enter the mix.

“I’m going to Tech this weekend and I’m going to UNC the following weekend. I might also try to sneak a visit to Penn State in sometime,” Dunn said. “I also got some big news this week that changes a lot. I just got offered by West Virginia. That was good news. They said they are going to try to throw the ball more to the receivers than what they tried to do when Coach Rodriguez was there. They have just one receiver commit in this class, so they need receivers.”

Dunn met yesterday with one of Bill Stewart’s newest assistant coaches, a person very familiar to Virginia Beach high school football.

“[Former Landstown head coach] Chris Beatty is now an assistant coach at West Virginia. He came by and we talked. We had a really good conversation,” said Dunn, who has scheduled an official visit to West Virginia for the weekend of February 2nd.

The West Virginia offer seems to have pushed the University of Virginia to the brink of elimination.

“Looking at what UVa has, it is hard to count them out. I think they do offer an opportunity for receivers to come in and play,” Dunn said. “But I don’t think I have enough visits since I already made one last month.”

Along with Virginia Tech, West Virginia is also now at the top of Dunn’s list. Prior to the WVU offer, Virginia Tech was the clear favorite.

“West Virginia changed things,” Dunn said. “Tech has so many receivers committed already. West Virginia doesn’t have many receivers that would play my position, which is the X. It is hard for me to say that Virginia Tech is the favorite right now.”
