USF in mix for ex-Gator Dunkley

The University of South Florida football team is in the mix for the services of former University of Florida receiver Chris Dunkley, who recently was granted a release from the Gators program and is transferring.
Pahokee football coach Blaze Thompson, who coached Dunkley in high school, said Friday the Bulls are one of five schools Dunkley is considering, and that the player made a visit to the USF campus Wednesday to check out the program.
“He said he enjoyed is visit and could see himself going there. He said it was a very positive experience for him,” said Thompson, who added he anticipates Dunkley making a decision on where to transfer within the next two weeks. “I think he could play for anybody as a wide receiver, but I think it’s a good fit. USF is a quality team, and I think it’s a good fit. I think he can make a positive experience out of it.”
Dunkley, who redshirted last season at Florida, was one of the nation’s top receiver recruits as a high school senior in 2009. The 5-foot-11, 174-pounder was ranked in the top 10 nationally at his position by both Rivals.com and Scout.com.
Reports out of Gainesville stated Dunkley was suspended this spring over academic concerns, but Thompson said from what he’s been told – both from the player and officials at Florida – Dunkley is on track to be in good academic standing with a 2.0 GPA following the spring semester. If Dunkley transfers to another Division I school, he would have to sit out the 2011 season per NCAA transfer rules and would have three years of eligibility.
“He’s a really talented football player,” Thompson said. “Academically he’s capable of succeeding wherever he goes. He just has to apply himself.”
