Though it went unnoticed by almost everyone, talented Pennsylvania athlete Dayonne Nunley quietly committed to spend his college years playing football and attending school at Miami-Ohio.
Nunley may be undersized at 5-foot-7 and 168-pounds, but he's the type of young man that plays much bigger than he is on the field.
This past fall he helped Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway to a 12-1 record before they lost in the state championship. Nunley recorded 78 tackles and four interceptions on defense, while scoring 12 total touchdowns on offense (7 receiving, 5 rushing). He also returned both a punt and a kickoff for scores, demonstrating that he could be a special teams contributor in the college ranks
Miami-Ohio recruited Nunley to play in the defensive backfield, and he's excited about his future at the MAC school.
"I want to say I committed to Miami of Ohio back in October," Nunley told Rivals.com. "It was after an official visit. I just felt comfortable with the coaches. It felt like I was staying where I am."
Nunley said he told other schools he would not be considering their offers, so they all backed off for the most part upon hearing of his commitment.
