Tajarvis Fuller

Two players hold D-1 offers in the 2012 class: Christian Brown(DT) and Tajarvis Fuller(S/LB). Brown is blessed with terrific size at 6'2, 290 and that comes with plus athleticism. Not many DTs with his size can run players down sideline to sideline, but he can. He looked in great physical condition and should get nothing but better from here. His best days are still a few years out.

Fuller, nicknamed "Monster", plays MLB for Dunbar, but the 6'0, 200 pounder is getting a lot of looks as a potential Safety. Dunbar likes a swift defense and Fuller fits right into that with his ability to get sideline to sideline. He is a physical kid who seems to like contact. In board drills he took on whoever would line up against him. His stock should continue to rise.

Some other 2012 players who are on the radar include S Ryan Welch, OT Matt Stillman, OLB Jontae Jackson, CB/WR Kenny Dawson, CB Keddrick Weatherspoon, and CB Mike Green.

Welch is an honor student that will start at Safety. He was also taking snaps at QB and the athlete could see time there as well. He has attracted a lot of lower division attention thus far and is poised for a strong season. Stillman has prototype size at 6'5, 320, but is very raw in only his second year of football. Long-term project, but one that could pay off because the tools are there. Jackson was out with a minor injury, but he would be the player who puts pressure on the QB. Jackson will play DE, but figures to slide back to OLB at the next level. Dawson, Weatherspoon, and Green will be DB/CBs and each is capable of playing at the next level.

Looking out to the 2013 class is Athlete Jonnell Barnes and LB Anthony Gordon. Barnes played some QB last year, but has moved to WR where he should be a play-maker. He has great hands and quickness. Gordon is a transfer from South Ft. Myers that caught our eye last year. At 6'1 he will fill out considerably over the next couple of years. He should fit right in at Dunbar.

If you are looking for a potential "national recruit" in 2014, remember the name Reysheed Bronson. The 6'3 freshmen WR has run sub 4.7 already and has nothing but upside remaining. He is a fluid athlete that will just get bigger, stronger, and faster over the next three years. He had a very productive season in 2010 and is at his best when the lights come on. Another WR, Joe Williams, has a lot of potential as well. He is close to 6'0 already and is regarded as one of the area's top young athletes.
