Dennis-Yarmouth head coach Paul Funk confirmed tonight to ESPNBoston.com that rising senior athlete Michael Dunn received his second Division 1 FCS offer yesterday, from the University of Rhode Island.
The 6-foot, 185-pound Dunn was a jack of all trades in 2013 for the Dolphins, who lost to Doherty in the MIAA Division 4 State Championship. He lined up at every skill position on the offensive side of the ball; defensively, he established himself as one of the state's premier cornerbacks in man-to-man coverage.
Dunn is also a cousin of former D-Y quarterback Matt Montalto, who made ESPN Boston's All-State Team in 2011 after leading the Dolphins to their first MIAA Super Bowl Championship.
New Hampshire was the first D1 program to offer Dunn, back in May. UMass, UConn, Boston College, South Florida, Colgate, Cornell, Brown and Villanova have also expressed varying degrees of interest in his services, at a variety of positions -- cornerback, safety, slot receiver, running back, and even outside linebacker.
Below is Dunn's highlight tape from 2013:
