Cleveland (OH) Glenville wide receiver Evonte Dunn put on quite a show last Saturday, at the Raw Talent Sports combine. Dunn, 5-foot-6, 160-pounds, tested well, and was a tough match-up for every defensive back.
"I had a good year as a junior, but I knew I had to wait my turn," Dunn said of his 2009 season. "I played behind Christian Bryant and Latwan Anderson, but I learned a lot watching those guys. I plan to have a break-out senior season."
Dunn, who caught 15 passes for over 300 yards in 2009, is prepared for a more expanded role this coming season at Glenville.
"I plan on playing both offense, and defense this year," he stated. "I'm primarily a wide receiver, but I will be playing defensive back, and returning kicks. I want to make myself a more rounded player, to be more desirable for colleges."
Although he doesn't have any scholarship offers at this time, there is interest, and he plans on playing football at the next level.
"I'm working hard in the weight room, getting stronger," he continued. "I also want to get better at all the little things, like route running and being a smarter player. My strength is the ability to get open, and I catch the ball. I'm really tough, like all smaller players have to be, and I have great speed. I can run a 4.42 (forty-yard dash) every day of the week."
"I want to be more of a leader this year, and make big plays," he stated. "I definitely want to play football in college. I do real well in the classroom, and I plan on majoring in accounting. I've been hearing from Ball State, Bowling Green and Toledo, and I love all three schools. I'm just looking for someone to give me a chance."
