Former Florida Gators receiver Chris Dunkley officially joins USF Bulls

We've been making it incrementally more official for days, but USF coach Skip Holtz sent out a statement on Tuesday afternoon confirming that former Florida Gators receiver Chris Dunkley has joined the Bulls on scholarship as a transfer.

"We're really excited to have Chris join the program," Holtz said. "He's very talented, has a lot of ability and we think he'll be a positive addition at USF."

Dunkley, a five-star recruit out of Pahokee in 2009 who redshirted in his only season at Florida, will sit out the 2011 season as required and will then have three years of eligibility with the Bulls. He started taking classes Monday as the summer semester opened at USF.

If you want to get excited about his potential at USF, just consider the schools he considered before signing with Florida: Alabama, Georgia, Miami, West Virginia and Michigan, according to his Gators bio page.
