HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Miami (Fla.) Miami Palmetto prospect Wendell Dunn was a jack-of-all-trades prospect during Saturday's South Florida Express tryout.
"I started at linebacker, then moved to receiver, tight end, and I even played some safety," Dunn said. "I like playing all of these different positions, because that is kind of what I already do anyways."
The past season, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound defender made a move to his likely future position but he will once again show his versatility during his senior season.
"I was a safety as a sophomore and this past season I played linebacker," Dunn said. "Now we have a new coach and he told me I am going to be a safety and linebacker, and that I will also play some at receiver."
Dunn says the transition down to the middle of the defense has been a smooth one.
"From making a move from safety to linebacker, it was kind of natural but I had to get used to taking on linemen," Dunn said. "I think I did a pretty good job of adjusting."
The South Florida prospect just recently picked up his first offer, but says others are beginning to show more interest.
"Southern has offered me," Dunn said. "I have also talked with Alabama, Ohio State, and some others. Just talked to the coaches some, let them know my name.
"Miami, Alabama, and Ohio State have talked to me about coming for Junior Day," Dunn added.
At this point in the process, Dunn doesn't know of any upcoming visits.
"I don't know of any," Dunn said. "My coach handles all of that."
The talented junior defender said he racked up just shy of 100 tackles as a junior.
