A member of one of Georgetown's most distinguished recruiting classes, David Dunn was a two-sport star from Mableton, GA who joined the Hoyas in the fall of 1982. Averaging 19 points, 18 rebounds and six assists a game at Pebblebrook HS, Dunn was more skilled in football than basketball but posted impressive numbers as an undersized 6-7 center who selected Georgetown over offers at Alabama, Creighton, and Memphis State.

A pre-season injury kept Dunn out of the lineup until early December and he struggled to get past two minutes per game alongside fellow freshman Victor Morris. His four points against Syracuse in the Big East tournament was a season high and represented nearly half his point production for the season.

Citing a need to be closer to home, Dunn transferred to Georgia, missing the Hoyas' national championship season but earning a productive career in the SEC. He led the Bulldogs in rebounding in 1985-96 and was an SEC All-Academic selection, shooting 55 percent from the field as the Bulldogs' starting center for parts of two seasons.

Despite rumors that Dunn and coach John Thompson did not see eye to eye, Dunn refuted such assertions. "I respect Coach Thompson. I'm not going to put the man down," he told the Associated Press in 1985. "The atmosphere's a lot looser here [at Georgia] than it was at Georgetown. Everybody's got rules and regulations and Coach Thompson's got his. It's just that he's got more of them."

After tryouts with two Philadelphia sports teams (the 76ers for basketball, the Eagles for football) Dunn played overseas for four years and served as a graduate assistant at Kennesaw State before entering a career as a high school teacher and coach in Woodstock, GA.
