When he told me that he snubbed Utah to come to Boise, I had to know more. “As soon as I visited I knew that was the place for me,” Dunn said. “I can’t wait.”
I work for a newspaper in Eastern Idaho and I spoke with a young man named Brennyn Dunn, a tight end/defensive end from Preston, Idaho. He accepted a preferred walk-on offer from Boise State after turning down full scholarship offers from Idaho State, Weber State, Utah State and Utah.
At 6'4" and 220 lbs., there is a lot of room for the kid to grow. He told me so himself. "I'm excited to get over there and get beefed up."
Dunn said that he will pay his through his first year of school at which point the coaching staff hopes to have a scholarship available for him. He is a complete beast and a freak athletically (does high jump, sprints, hurdles and relays in track as well as plays on the basketball team at Preston).
He runs a 4.6 40, has a 33-inch vertical leap and benches 285. Imagine what he will do when he indeed gets beefed up.
I've seen him play and it gets me excited to see what he will do on The Blue. I bet he will sit out this year as either a redshirt or grayshirt, but then find a place on special teams. Eventually, I think he will contribute nicely as a tight end and be another one of the unsung, great local players that Boise State seems to always get.
