Athlete prospect Reggie Dunn (5-10, 170, 4.4) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Verbum Dei was one of the many standouts who showed up at the Rivals.com junior day. He passed the eyeball test and is quickly changing his status from sleeper to prospect. Dunn recently picked up his first offer.
One of the reason Dunn has seen his stock pick up considerably was a very strong showing at a recent NIKE combine when he clocked a 4.50 and a 4.58 in the forty. He also recorded a solid 4.31 in the shuttle and he recorded 33-inch vertical.
"Reggie has just picked up his first offer from Arizona and he was very excited," Verbum Dei assistant coach Owen Brown said. "He loves Arizona and I would say the Wildcats would naturally be his favorite."
"I don't think this will be the first or the last offer Reggie will get," Brown said. "Especially with coaches all over the Pac-10 requesting film along and schools all around the country."
"Reggie deserves all the early recognition he getting because he's been working extremely hard since the season end," Brown said. "We have guys really getting after it in our off-season training and track programs, but I'd say Reggie could be the hardest worker."
"Reggie would love to hear a little more from the local schools UCLA and USC, but knows it's not the end of the world if he does or doesn't. He's pumped about the Wildcat offer."
Dunn was a first-team all-league and all-CIF as a junior after hauling in 12 receptions for 319 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed for 315 rushing yards and four more touchdowns. He led Verbum Dei with 963 all-purpose yards.
On defense, Dunn had 41 tackles, three picks and three fumble recoveries. He is also an outstanding return man who averaged 18.7 yards per kick return with a long of 52 yards and on punt returns he averages 16.4 yards per punt return with a long of 43 yards.
Dunn also has impressive bloodlines. Former Florida State star and Atlanta Falcon running back Warrick Dunn and LSU freshman quarterback Ryan Perrilloux are his cousins.
