An open-ended question was posed to a few media outlets covering the University of Utah in regards to wide receiver/kick returner Reggie Dunn.
SB Nation's Block U, who graciously answered our questions via Twitter.
Asked very simply, why didn't Dunn get the ball more, the response is intriguing.
@nealcoolong Utah's offense has been inconsistent a great deal of the last two seasons and it's led to disappointing returns...— Block U (@BlockU) May 6, 2013
@nealcoolong at the receiver spot. Reggie Dunn is a talent, but Utah also hasn't had stability at quarterback - losing their starting QB— Block U (@BlockU) May 6, 2013
@nealcoolong to season-ending injuries early in both the last two seasons. Because of that, they've been a mess all around and no one— Block U (@BlockU) May 6, 2013
@nealcoolong has been spared overall limitations. Last year, Utah's offensive line also faced a great deal of struggle and that compounded— Block U (@BlockU) May 6, 2013
@nealcoolong the problem even more. But Dunn is a talent and with a competent offense, and quarterback, I anticipate he can be utilized— Block U (@BlockU) May 6, 2013
So a vote of support for the emerging Cult Hero Dunn.
The Steelers next scheduled full team portion of OTAs May 21-23. Subsequent OTAs are scheduled for May 28-30 and June 3-6. Minicamp is scheduled June 11-13. Perhaps Dunn can show a thing or two while there. He'll certainly be a player to watch, as competition for kick and punt return duties looks to be competitive this training camp.
