Buckeyes In Top Group for 4-Star Florida Receiver John Dunmore

John Dunmore Ohio State Recruiting Buckeyes

Four-star Hollywood, Florida (Chaminade-Madonna Prep) wide receiver John Dunmore released his Top 7 Friday night. As expected, the Buckeyes made the cut, as did Florida State, Penn State, Miami, Florida, Auburn, and Michigan. Florida State is currently sitting with the Crystal Ball lead, with 69% of the 13 projections pointing at the Seminoles.

Dunmore (6-2 172) is the No. 18 wide receiver in the 2019 recruiting class according to the 247Sports Composite. He is ranked the No. 107 player overall and the No. 15 player in the state of Florida.

Rivals likes Dunmore quite a bit, ranking him as their No. 7 receiver and the No. 41 player in the nation. They also named him the best receiver to have attended their regional Rivals 3 Stripe Camps this spring. The No. 2 receiver on that list is Ohio State commitment Garrett Wilson.

Here is Rivals’ breakdown of Dunmore’s performance.

Dunmore set the tone for receivers in the camp series by making a variety of acrobatic catches in routine fashion at the first camp in Miami. This year’s series included some changes to the format, and in that first camp, one-on-one reps weren’t quite as plentiful, but Dunmore took the chances that he was given and made the most of them. Miami also featured several other top receiving talents – most notably Clemson commit Frank Ladson – but Dunmore was as consistent as he was eye-catching and his results on the afternoon allowed him to take top honors in South Florida.

Dunmore visited Ohio State in April.

The Buckeyes are also very involved with 4-star St. Louis receiver Marcus Washington. Washington is the No. 9 receiver in the nation and the No. 58 player overall. He is set to decide in August and currently Ohio State holds 80% of the five Crystal Ball projections.

Ohio State is also remaining close with No. 16 receiver David Bell (Indianapolis, IN), who has had 1,000 yards receiving each of the past two years.
