A number of schools were pursing Dunn including Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC, Louisville, Miami, Ohio State and Georgia Tech. Reports had Dunn going to Oklahoma a week ago and then a sudden flip to Ohio State. Coach Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma, made a post on Twitter over the weekend indicating that Dunn was a done deal going to the Sooners.
