Last week, Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) wide receiver Randall Dunn was excited about receiving a scholarship offer from West Virginia. Last night, the 6-3, 215-pound standout was excited about the experience he just had at Virginia Tech.
“I was pretty excited about the offer from West Virginia, but I wasn’t overly excited. It still takes time. I haven’t built relationships like I have with Tech or any other school,” Dunn said. “I was excited about the West Virginia offer, but Tech still leads…especially after this weekend.”
Dunn returned on Monday night from an official visit to Blacksburg. The visit began early Sunday morning.
“I got a chance to go around the campus and meet the players,” Dunn said. “My host was Kam Chancellor. From Tyrod Taylor to Kam to all the people I met, they were all real funny guys. I just had a ball. They all made me feel right at home. The feeling consumed the whole place.”

All of the recruits are young and they will be learning at the same time as me, so I don’t see it as a bad situation. Plus, Virginia Tech could move some of those guys to other spots.”

“I want to follow through and make the final two visits just because I want to make sure I make the right decision,” Dunn said. “I want to make sure that I looked into everything and went everywhere so I know I made the right choice.”
Dunn, who has also made an official visit to Connecticut, says he is also considering Penn State and Virginia but admits that it would...
