Weight: 230 lbs.

2015 Stats: According to Cuse.com, Dunkelberger didn't record any stats last year but he did make his debut against Rhode Island.
2016 Projections: Dunkelberger is currently listed as a backup defensive end in the post-spring depth chart behind Kenneth Ruff. Syracuse is extremely thin at DE, so Trey is sure to see some time. The Orange currently only have three scholarship players at defensive end.

What’d Recruiting Sites Say?: Three stars across the board!
Money Quote: ‘Dunk’ spoke on his transition to defensive end with Syracuse.com 's Nate Mink:
“Over the summer, I’m going to work on weight and strength. Once fall comes I’m coming for No. 1 and I want to play. I made the switch because I want to help the team and I’m going to do whatever it takes.”
