Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) wide receiver Randall Dunn returned home last night from what will be the final official visit he makes before announcing his college choice. The 6-3, 215-pound standout made an official visit to the University of Virginia on Wednesday and Thursday and took some time to discuss the visit as well as his impending decision.
The midweek visit to UVa “went really well,” said Dunn, who attended meetings, visited with the coaches and spent time with the players on his two-day trip. “I learned a lot of new stuff about Virginia that I didn’t consider before, like the opportunities you can get education-wise by getting a UVa degree.”
Dunn was hosted by junior wide receiver Kevin Ogletree. He also spent a lot of time with freshman quarterback Peter Lalich, who is expected to be the starter next season.
“With Lalich, the situation at Virginia is an even better situation than it was before,” Dunn said. “He is a throwing quarterback. He doesn’t like to run outside the pocket and that fits well with trying to get the ball downfield.”
Overall, the standout senior enjoyed his time with the players and coaches.
“I definitely felt like I fit in,” Dunn said. “Talking to the coaches and the guys was nothing like I thought it might be. I had a good time.”
Dunn did not name a favorite, but one thing is for sure. He will be playing for an ACC program next year. The talented prospect has narrowed his list to North Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech. He had also made an official visit to Connecticut, but the Huskies are no longer being considered.
“There are good things about all three,” Dunn said. “I just have to sit down with my family and talk it out.
“North Carolina is a team on the rise. They have a great group of kids there already. They are striving to win. They were on the brink last year.
“With Virginia, there is a tremendous opportunity for me to play in my first year. With the quarterback change, they are trying to open up the offense.
“Virginia Tech just has winners. They know how to win. They have people who know what they want out of their players.”
A decision could come over the weekend, but for now Dunn expects it to be closer to, if not on, Signing Day.
