5-Star running back Brionte Dunn was questionable heading into his game against McKinley. By the time the game was over, the Ohio State commitment had the answer.

Brionte Dunn is Scout's No. 5 running back in the country, and he is committed to Ohio State. He was battling a hip injury suffered in the previous week heading into a showdown on FSOhio against McKinley.

For much of the game, it seemed as if Dunn would get only a token carry or two and be used mostly as a decoy. Then the fourth quarter came, and GlenOak's strategy to use Dunn became clear. Call it "Jordanesque"; keep it close, then let the star take over.

Dunn had two carries for three yards heading into the fourth quarter. He had 15 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown in the final frame alone. That could almost be considered a night off for the workhorse running back who is likely to finish his career with over 1,000 carries.

Dunn's bruising style, quick feet and excellent balance were on display as he took advantage of a tired McKinley defense. What started as a 7-3 deficit, finished as a 16-7 victory in the conclusion of the Brionte Dunn show.

Here is a look at him in action.
