Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA) wide receiver Randall Dunn made his college choice this afternoon. After narrowing his list to North Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech, the 6-3, 215-pound senior has decided to play his college football in the state of Virginia. Which in-state program did he choose?

“Randall has decided to go to Virginia Tech,” Ocean Lakes head coach Jim Prince said. “Congratulations to him and congratulations to Virginia Tech. They are getting a great player.”

Dunn, who will play wide receiver at Virginia Tech, racked up 13 touchdown receptions this past season. Although he has only played one-and-a-half seasons of high school football, he earned a handful of top Division 1A scholarship offers as a result of his senior season performance. He had been offered by all three finalists as well as Connecticut, Penn State and West Virginia, among others.

The talented athlete make official visits to U-Conn, Virginia Tech, UNC and UVa before settling on the Hokies.

“With Randall, I think it is a combination of so many things,” Prince said earlier this month. “There is something unique about him. He is 6-3, close to 220 pounds, and he still runs a 4.5 in the 40. Then, he hardly ever lets the ball get to his body. He always catches it with his hands and that is the way he started out. He has size and agility and he catches everything with his hands. The weirdest thing about him, being a guy that hasn’t played a lot of football, is that he runs angry. He runs mean.”

Dunn is Virginia Tech’s 29th verbal commitment for the 2008 recruiting class. His teammate, QB/ATH Marcus Davis, could also commit to Virginia Tech. Davis has narrowed his list to the Hokies and Penn State and, according to Coach Prince, is expected to make a decision today.
