WR Dunmore lands FSU offer, still waiting on Miami

WR Dunmore lands FSU offer, still waiting on Miami

Stefan Adams
2019 WR John Dunmore blew everyone away with some jaw dropping catches at the Rivals 3 Strip Miami Camp last week, earning WR MVP. He then followed that up with a great performance at the Opening Miami Regional on Sunday.


“I felt like I did alright. I feel like I could’ve done better. I came out here for work. I didn’t really have much rest coming back from the Florida State trip, I was a little tired, but it’s all good.”


The trip to Tallahassee apparently went pretty well: the Noles offered Dunmore this weekend on the visit and he called FSU his “dream school”.


“It went good, I got my dream school offer.”


During camp, things escalated quickly in WR/DB 1-on-1’s at one point, with Dunmore getting into it with St. Thomas DB Marcus Lafrance after a couple of testy reps. As Dunmore crossed his face, he slapped Lafrance on the back of the head, broke free on a slant, and scored. Then, Dunmore pegged Lafrance with the ball. After the fact, Dunmore said it was just the heat of battle and the two are good friends.


“It’s all competition,” Dunmore explained. “That’s my boy from Middle School. We always be going at it.”


Dunmore, who lists himself at 6’2” 178 pounds, had a great junior year, and he was utilized in a role at American Heritage-Delray that allowed him to show off his various athletic talents at multiple positions for the benefit of the team.


“I feel like I did good, but I was versatile this year, playing QB, DB, all over the field,” Dunmore said. “I was mostly a team player. They didn’t end up giving me my stats because I transferred, but we lost first round to Chaminade.”


In a twist of fate, Dunmore ended up transferring to the school that ended his junior year: Chaminade-Madonna.


“Yeah, I’m there (Chaminade) now, what a coincidence (laughs).”


Without any leaders or top groups, Dunmore isn’t really close to narrowing things down. But who is he hearing from the most?


“I’m just weighing out all my options right now, listening to every school and seeing what they have to offer me,” Dunmore said. “Florida State, Georgia, Auburn, Arkansas, Michigan, and Ohio State (are coming the hardest).”


While contact with Miami has been few and far between, and Dunmore is still waiting on an offer from the Canes, he says he does hear from WR coach Ron Dugans from time to time.


“I’ve talked to coach Ron Dugans,” said Dunmore. “I think he’s trying to build up a relationship first, then pull the trigger (on an offer).”


Up until recently, Dunmore had been a long-time commit to Florida. The sudden change-up on the Gators’ coaching staff gave him pause, though, and he decommitted a few weeks back. After making one pledge that ended up being too early, now Dunmore is slowing the process down.


“Just wanted to take a step back and evaluate my options. I wanted to make sure I was making the right decision,” said Dunmore. “I’m still taking things into consideration. I want to take it slow because once I’m at college, I’m in there, no transferring, so I want to make sure I’m making the right decision.”


When it’s time to separate one school from all the others, a family atmosphere and stability in the coaching staff may be deciding factors for Dunmore.


“Probably relationships,” Dunmore said on what’s most important to him in a school. “And, will I be able to come back to the program in the future and have it still be like a family? Plus, coaching changes. I don’t want to go to a program where the coaches are changing left and right.”

Heard concerns about off the field activities. Could be blown up nothings.
 
Few things stood out. The "dream school" phrase which I kind of laughed at. Maybe that's because whenever we are mentioned as a dream school it ends up differently. The last part also seemed interesting. Wants a place that feels like home and he can come back to and will always be like a family. That only happens at Miami. Also, the constant coaching changes thing made me chuckle too. Apparently he knows little to nothing about Taggart and his track record the last 3 years.
 
I’m glad we’re not trying to get him. Would be a waste of time IMO.
 
What 3 you got in mind?

I think Payton and Ladson are the 2 the coaches have prioritized and have a spot no matter what. Fuller is still committed. I don't know there thinking of guys they may put offers out to as far as back up plans and what not. I would say if Dunmore doesn't have an offer yet he will get one soon but still not sure where in the pecking order he falls.
 
welcome to college football where coaches move around every year.
 
Add Payton and Dunmore or Ladson, whoever commits first and close up shop
 
Dugans isn't stupid. I am sure their is a good reason why they haven't offered him.

LOL well FSU is not your school then buddy....sounds like hes talking about Miami and wants the offer bad
 
Main targets are Payton and Ladson with Fuller committed.

Need to lock up Payton and throw everything at Ladson, then if Fuller sticks we end up with 3, if Ladson goes elsewhere or Fuller decommits we end up with 2, but Payton and Ladson are the 2 we really want, and only need 2 in this class IMO.

Dunmore would be after those 2 (Ladson and Payton), but might commit if offered, so we are holding off.

Ladson and Stevenson are supposedly a "package deal" like McIntosh and Sanguinetti seem to be.
