John Dunmore Jr, former UA All-American, transfers to Oregon State


The Oregon State Beavers have dipped into the transfer portal again. 

John Dunmore Jr., a former Under Armour All-American and Penn State wide receiver verbally committed to transfer to the Beavers with four years of eligibility remaining.

As a signee of the 2019 class, he saw action in one game as a Nittany Lion against Purdue later that year. He did not record a statistic.

His recruiting profile tells a different story, however. 247Sports composite ranking listed Dunmore as the nation's No. 120 overall player and No. 20 wide receiver in his recruiting class. 

Had Dunmore signed with Oregon State out of high school, he would be the fifth-highest rated prospect to sign with the Beavers in program history. 

The 6'2", 179-pound wide receiver was compared to Rashad Greene coming out of high school by John Garcia, who projected him to be a Day 3 NFL Draft pick.

"Thin, wiry frame with long arms and plenty of room to fill out. Some classic slot receiver ability with ability to win routes shortly after the snap," wrote Garcia Jr. in November 2018.

"Developed route-runner who can set up defender with quickness and fails to telegraph cuts or lose speed in and out of breaks. Smooth runner. Strong hands. Can make contested catch but plays slightly smaller than listed. Competitive at point of attack. Length enables above-average long speed but burst far from elite. Plays faster than testing results suggest. Not very physical on or off the ball. As mass is added could result in consistent play on outside but polish should lead to fairly early playing time at high-end Power 5 program. Projects as consistent, productive threat between the hashes with added third-down value who could rack up numbers tough for the NFL to ignore later in the draft when his eligibility is exhausted."
