Whitehouse Sophomore Justin Dunning Invited to Three Events

Whitehouse sophomore safety Justin Dunning is already hearing from multiple college programs. (Christopher Vinn,

Justin Dunning could be one of East Texas’ top recruits in the 2015 class. He’s already showing why.

The 6-foot-4, 200-pound safety has been invited to this weekend’s Mississippi State junior day, as well as two spring games: Texas on March 30 and Texas Tech on April 20. Dunning won’t make it to Starkville this weekend, but will attend the Texas spring game and hopes to attend the Texas Tech spring game.

Dunning said that SMU has also shown interest.

Dunning is a key part of a Whitehouse secondary that returns three starters in 2013. Dunning joins fellow sophomore Nate Brooks and junior Isaiah Burton, both cornerbacks, in the Wildcat defensive backfield. The only graduating secondary starter is safety Colby Campbell, who signed with Lamar.

Dunning, who was also recently invited to the Rivals/UnderArmour Camp in Cedar Hill on March 17, had a strong sophomore season in 2012, when Whitehouse finished 10-2 with a Class 4A Division II Region II area playoff appearance. He accumulated 61 tackles, five interceptions, and two fumble recoveries for a Wildcat defense that surrendered two touchdowns fewer per game than the 2011 unit, which yielded more than 43 points per contest.

Troup sophomore quarterback/receiver Blake Lynch has also been invited to the Mississippi State junior day and plans to attend. Lynch and Dunning are parts of a 2015 East Texas class that, in the early stages of its recruitment, appears to be strong. Gladewater defensive tackle Daylon Mack (6-2, 297) holds offers from TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. Lufkin athlete KeKe Coutee (5-10, 170), Longview tailback Ja’Mycal Hasty (5-9, 185), Lufkin offensive lineman Erik McCoy (6-3, 270), Sulphur Springs safety Larry Pryor (6-1, 185), and Tatum linebacker/safety Kyshaun Smith (6-1, 185) could also be among East Texas’ top players in the 2015 class
