Walk Ons

Pat Hill is synonymous for producing top flight talent, and many of his best players were former walk ons. Logan Mankins, Stephan Spach, Garrett McIntyre, and Bryson Sumlin are just a few of the names Hill turned into great college contributors and legitimate NFL prospects.

Stockton Edison running back/defensive back Desia Dunn plans to join the Fresno State football team as an invited walk-on this fall. Could Dunn be the next great Bulldog walk on? His high school numbers are not eye-popping, but then again neither were Sumlin's. Dunn will probably redshirt if he sticks it out, but then again McIntyre was supposed to redshirt as a true freshman in 2002. Fresno State is thin at cornerback per se, outside of Marcus McCauley, no other cornerback is assured of playing time.
