Dunn is Ohio State's third player to enter the transfer portal after the 2022 regular season, joining safety Jaylen Johnson and linebacker Teradja Mitchell.

Dunn was a four-star safety out of Bowling Green, Kentucky, enrolling into the program in January 2021. He was the No. 10 safety in the 2021 class and the second-ranked player out of Kentucky behind offensive lineman Jager Burton.

Dunn held offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Texas and Southern California, among others.

After playing in two games as a freshman in 2021, Dunn appeared in four games for Ohio State in 2022, not appearing in a game after the Buckeyes' win against Penn State.
