Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) wide receiver Randall Dunn , one of the hottest remaining targets in the state of Virginia, made what was his third official visit this past weekend when he went to the University of North Carolina. The 6-3, 215-pound Dunn used one word to describe his overall experience in Chapel Hill.
“I was shocked,” Dunn said. “I was shocked because I really wasn’t giving them a decent look before this weekend. The visit gave me something to think about.”
The amount of NFL experience on UNC’s coaching staff was the biggest surprise to the Ocean Lakes star.
“They were college coaches but really pro guys. All of them were,” Dunn said. “When we went to watch film, they didn’t show college film. I watched guys like Randy Moss and Jerry Rice. I respect their knowledge of the game. They also all seem to be pretty good teachers.”
Of the overall visit, Dunn said “I just really enjoyed myself. I was glad to see everything UNC had to offer because they came into the picture late. With the wide receivers they have, they all might be gone after next year. Coach Davis has a reputation for developing guys.

Dunn was asked to rate his previous official visit, which was to Blacksburg on the weekend of January 18th.
“I’d say that visit was a nine also,” Dunn said. “It was everything I wanted it to be with the people and everything. I don’t like the cold weather there, but I could deal with it.”
Though he named Virginia Tech as his favorite heading into the UNC trip, Dunn admits now that picking a favorite is becoming tougher and tougher with each official visit.
“With all the thinking I have to do from now until I decide, I don’t even want to answer that question,” Dunn replied when asked if he had a favorite school.
He did say what matters to him most in finding the right school
“I want to know if I fit that school’s attitude and program,” Dunn said. “With most of the schools I have the opportunity to go to, I will have a good...
