Tucker’s Isaiah Dunson posted six receptions and a game-high 121 receiving yards in the Tigers’ matchup against Buford at last year’s Corky Kell Classic. The breakaway speed of Dunson and the athleticism of the 6-foot-2 four-star recruit took center stage during a 69-yard touchdown catch midway through the third quarter. While crossing the goal line, Dunson gave a tomahawk chop with his FSU gloves in an ode to the Noles. Just one week following the Corky Kell, he made it official and committed to play for the Seminoles.

“The first time I stepped foot on their campus, it was just that feeling,” Dunson told 247sports. “I had that feeling.”

While Dunson will be playing cornerback and receiver for Tucker, Florida State defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett sees Dunson’s combination of size, quickness and speed as an ideal fit for the Noles’ secondary.

Dunson received his first SEC offer (South Carolina) early into his sophomore season and concluded the year by playing in the Georgia Elite Classic Sophomore Game where he posted a pair of tackles and receptions. Committing early into his junior season is something that Dunson sees as a blessing and a visit or two to Tallahassee this season will be something he can look forward to, already confident in his choice.

Dunson has all the skills needed to exceed at the next level and he’ll be entering the 2019 GHSA season as the No. 26 cornerback in the country and the No. 31 overall prospect in the state according to 247sports. He was also clocked at a 4.22 shuttle at the Opening this past March—highlighting his quickness and ability to cover ground.

This year, Tucker will be opening the season against Class AAAAAAA powerhouse Archer at Coolray Field in Gwinnett County. It will be the first-ever matchup between the schools and a great opportunity to see Dunson patrolling the perimeter against an experienced Archer offense.
