Name: Trey Dunkelberger
Position: Tight end
Hometown: Shillington, PA
High School: Governor Mifflin
2014 Stats: Trey played for the Los Angeles Pierce College Brahmas last year, which sounds awesome.
2015 Projections: Trey is currently fourth on the TE depth chart behind Josh Parris, Cameron MacPherson and Tyler Provo. But, given the way Syracuse likes to shuffle TEs to Hybrid and Hybrids to RB and RBs to WR...who the hell knows how this'll shake out.
How'd He Get Here: Dunk got a lot of looks after that one season at JUCO. He chose SU over offers from Akron (JUST LIKE OLD TIMES!), USF and Cincy. He was also apparently getting looks from Louisville, Clemson and Ohio State.
What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Three stars across the board
Money Quote: "The direction they want to go just seems like an exciting place to be at this time."
