There’s a rumor floating around that Royal Palm Beach wide receiver Chris Dunkley has a silent verbal commitment to the University of Florida. How do these silent verbals work anyway? What do they do, give a head nod? Then again, there’s also the rumor that if Ohio St. offers him at their spring game which he allegedly will be attending, Dunkley will accept on the spot. Sounds like a Buckeye contrived rumor to me.
