Shortly after he decided to transfer from the Florida Gators, wide receiver Chris Dunkley singled out the South Florida Bulls as his destination of choice and appears to have made his decision final.
According to the St. Petersburg Times, South Florida is waiting to receive Dunkley’s formal transcript from Florida in order to begin the process of getting him enrolled.
Speaking with Dunkley’s high school coach Blaze Thompson, the Times’ Greg Auman reports that Cincinnati, Marshall and West Virginia also inquired about the player’s availability. “Honestly, I believe it’s going to happen with USF,” Thompson said, noting that Dunkley finished his final semester with a grade point average between 2.5-2.6.
Just weeks after Dunkley decided to transfer, the Gators also found out that freshman running back Mike Blakely has decided to move on and play for another team. The Bulls have already been in contact with hopes of bringing him on board as well.
Blakely, whose release notes that he cannot transfer directly to Florida State, Miami or another Southeastern Conference team, has become a top target for USF, which Auman reports “has already received a release to speak with Blakely.”
