Dunn played on the scout team all last year and improved as a running back. In addition to improving on the field he also got in better physical shape in the weight room according to position coach Stan Drayton. And he learned the plays better, allowing him to play quicker this year. He hopes to come out of spring as the number one back, which was wide open after Hyde departed.
He has good size for a running back 6’ and 220 lbs., he is able to stay in and block on different plays when needed. He had success as a freshman, being the Big 10 freshman of the week against Illinois. He hopes to continue on that success this year now that the top spot at his position is open.
