Reggie Dunn, Scout.com's No. 47 wide receiver, has been favoring Washington for quite some time. A big part of that was their wide receiver coach, Eric Yarber. It shouldn't come as a surprise that once coach Yarber left for Arizona State, the Huskies' chances of landing Dunn took a bad turn. He says the Huskies are no longer interested, but the Sun Devils are and he'll be visiting them on Feb. 2.

Reggie Dunn (5-9, 160, 4.35), the four-star wide-out Verbum Dei in Los Angeles (Calif.), has narrowed his choices to Oregon State and Arizona State and says that the Sun Devils just popped in with an offer.

"They just offered me today," Dunn said. "I talked with their new wide receiver coach, Eric Yarber, at my school and he said they have an offer for me. He's gonna be coming to my house next week so we can talk some more."

Eric Yarber, formerly the wide receiver coach for Washington, was recruiting Dunn for the Huskies. "I haven't heard from Washington since coach Yarber left for Arizona State," Dunn said. "It's been several weeks."

Dunn plans on visiting the Sun Devils on Feb. 2. "They seem like a real up-and-coming team," Dunn said. "I'm looking forward to my visit."

He already visited Oregon State on Jan. 19. "I love the people there," Dunn said. "I felt like I really fit in and felt like I've known them all for years.

The Beavers cornerback coach, Nigel Burton, and their wide receiver coach, Lee Hull, visited him at his house this week. "The coaches said that I could make an impact right away," Dunn said. "They just tell me how powerful their offense is and how much they throw the ball.

"I want to sign on Signing Day, but I'm patient so I don’t mind waiting if that's what's best," Dunn said. "I know schools sometimes come in last minute, like Arizona State just did, and I want to give everybody a chance.

"I'd like to play early," Dunn said. "I think I have the ability to contribute, so I'll go where I think they need me the most."

He reports a 2.5 core GPA and is taking the SAT on Jan. 27. "I don't really remember my score, but I know I'm pretty close," Dunn said. "I'll combine my scores and I should be fine. I'm not even thinking about juco or anything."
