Offers have started to come in for Virginia Beach (Va.) Green Run athlete Zachary Dunston. The 6-foot-1, 188-pounder pulled the scholarship from the Big East.
"He got the offer last week from Louisville and then got one recently from Kent State," Green Run head coach Shawn Wilson said. "He hasn't said too much about the offers yet though."
Already Dunston has visited a few schools to date.

"He went to West Virginia and Maryland for spring practices and was at Michigan State earlier this semester for a basketball game," he said. "He's also hearing from Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Marshall, Temple and Syracuse."
Does Dunston have any camps planned?
"I think I'm going to try to get all three of my players to Virginia Tech's camp," he said. "I think I'll take Zachary to Tennessee myself and he may go to East Carolina's camp too."
Wilson believes the Beach prospect likes a few schools.
"I know he likes West Virginia, Marshall and Michigan State."
Meanwhile, what sticks out about him as a prospect?
"Zach is a pretty good player," he said. "He can man up and cover. He's covered guys including Randall Dunn, Marquell Thomas and others. Tavon Gatlin got all the press, but Zach did a lot of the work.
"He is a two-way player. Maryland likes him at receiver, but I think he's a defensive back that could play cornerback or safety. He's a better fit for safety."
One concern with Dunston was academics, but Wilson maintains his talented prospect has improved dramatically.
"He's working on his academics and has improved them. We are waiting on his test score, but he is doing what he is supposed to do and getting it in order."
