BREAKING: Penn State WR John Dunmore Announces Transfer to FAU

Post

Iíve seen high school players a receiver in particular who looked amazing but couldnít make it in the P5.

We want everything to work out but high school receiver recruits have a better chance of being successful here than the P5 transfers.

These guys are coming here as failures on the big stage. Obviously you want to think itíll work out. But it could also be 4 years of nothing.

How good they looked in high school is meaningless. Thatís not where the story ends. The story ends at them not being good enough for P5.

None of our WR Play has been good over the last couple of years. Not HS, Juco, or transfers… Our best WR here is a P5 transfer in chase.†

Again, Coaching??? Player development is on THEM! Team preparation and team readiness and play calling is on THEM!

I will add to that post however, player coachability IS on the players. I HAVE experienced in my time excellent, very talented players who would not be Coached up to become even better. Fortunately, I have experienced MANY more lesser "ability" players who WOULD take coaching, apply it and work with it and just blow past the more talented ones and become PLAYERS!

You said the past couple years receiver play has been bad?

In 2019 the receivers were great. They were all recruited here out of high school.

The only transfer was Antoine from USF. And he made big plays at USF which is the rule I have for a transfer to have any chance to be successful.

Antonie only had 25 catches and under 300 yards in three seasons before coming here.

Research your own rule.


FAU has had one true break 800 yards in the last four seasons

Durante, who was a transfer and never broke 400 yards in two seasons at WVU.

I said big plays not total yards. Antoine had multiple 80 yard tdís at USF.†

You canít just look at stats with Durante. He was undependable with no hands and only put up those ďnumbersĒ because there were no other receivers to throw to. Itís not exactly like Wright is dangerous on intermediate to long routes.


Durante is as awful as all of them have been except Antoine. I donít see any of these P5 transfer receivers playing on Sundays. You have to admit at some point that you still have a lot to learn. It takes a lot of experience to be able to judge how these things happen. You need to have followed college football not only bad teams but seen the best players of all time in person on a regular basis to be able to judge who is good.†

I do agree with JFG, as I do prefer developing our own players, but if a top local kid spends a year up north and misses home and wants to spend 3-4 years down here.

WELCOME HOME! :Big-Grin:

At this point Iíve been right about every single transfer.

He had a 64 yard kickoff return. I wrote before the 2019 season that Antoine could be good because of that. Just so Iím being accurate Iím going to find that post.
