BREAKING: Penn State WR John Dunmore Announces Transfer to FAU

Post

Hopefully he will be good and Iíd love to be wrong.

But the story didnít end at him being one of the best receivers in the country. He couldnít work his way up the depth chart at PSU.

No doubt  you develop the new kids . But these guys already know college football. . If available and if they can fill a void , bring them in. And as delta  suggested,  I treat transfers with cautious optimism.  I hope for all involved that they make an impact.

Some of these kids may not make an impact right away but some are young. Dmarcus adams, and the wr from kentucky are all sophmores or below. Lots of opportunity for development.

I am not really talking about those guys. They still have time. I am speaking more about Kyle Davis, Chris Carter's etc

To add to this, Adams did not even get his wavier to the right before the season.

During camp they had to get the guys they thought were going to play the most reps.


When Javon Durante was here, he had a full season sitting out learning the offense every day working with Chris before playing.

As I have pointed out from the 2017,2018, and 2019 classes under Lane, only two WR's played in 2020- Wright and Merrell.

Dunmore has 3-4 years left and can be developed like any high school player.

Except he was was one of the most talented revivers in the country.

This gives you an example of dunmoreís talent level.

Dumore has a .9469 composite on 247.

Scratching my head at anyone who has ever made our roster that has been rated higher.

Robison was .9272, and think that was the best prior.

BJ Emmons was definitely north of that composite and Iím sure there is a couple more. Not to take away from Dunmore, he looks legit, but Iím really enjoying this recruiting thought exercise.

This signing period is the beginning of a run of winning years for fau  and FAU fans. Two  weeks ago I had lost my confidence a bit. I'm now excited again. Coach t did what he needed to do to help us forget the other qb that decomitted. Great job to the staff and to the staff of FAU  owls nest. You guys have gotten better every year. Nice to see the way you work with the university while keeping us informed.

Nice pick up! Love to see talent brought into the program like this. But I am going to hold up some enthusiasm just due to the fact so many power 5 transfers have never seen the field or didnít live up to expectations. But hopefully this one does!†

A lot of those guys -like many of Lane's acquisitions- had issues off the field.

The transfer portal used to be filled with guys that had those issues, but now has guys just looking for better situations.

Any mid-level three-star has just as much of a chance of not working out then a tranfer.

As Shane said earlier, getting transfers like Adams, Dunmore and Johnson Jr. is just like getting High School recruits since they have four year of eligibility and really can not be judged by what they did at Penn State or FSU. These players are more like signees than transfers.

Also we are getting Greene who has all of his eligibility still, he should be able to develop into one of the best LBís in the CUSA in no time
