Just a month before spring practice is scheduled to start, 2015 wide receiver Larry Dunnon has decided to switch schools.
Dunnon has transferred from John I. Leonard to Palm Beach Central, according to Broncos head coach Tino Ierulli. The news was first reported by PrepBuilders.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Dunnon is the second big name to transfer out of John I. Leonard this year, as 2015 Lancers wide receiver Tavares Martin, who holds offers from school like Florida State, Miami and Ohio State, transferred to Dwyer in January.
“Larry’s mother just wants him to go to a different school,” Lancers coach Kevin Fleury said. “I have been doing this too long to worry about kids that don’t want to be here. I don’t take it offensively. I wish him the best. I have no plans on fighting it. I’m trying to build a program with kids that want to play for me.”
In order to attend Central, Dunnon moved into the school’s zone. He enrolled at his new school Tuesday.
The Broncos plan to use Dunnon at multiple positions, including as a wide receiver, tight end and defensive back. He will team up with 2015 ATH Kemar Downer, 2015 TE Luis Peguero and 2015 LB Frantz Frezin at Central, as the Broncos look to win their third consecutive district title next season.
“With his height, his speed, his range and his hands, he would be a great safety,” Ierulli said of Dunnon. “I looked at his film and he’s very impressive. He’s a very good athlete.”
Dunnon, who is listed as a three-star recruit on 247 Sports, has received interest from schools such as Miami, FAU and South Alabama.
