He started all 211 games the Wildcats played in his four years with the program and led the team this past season with a .340 average. He totaled 230 hits over the course of his career with Northwestern, making him ninth all-time in that category for the purple and white.

The key part missing from Dunn’s playing capability is power at the plate (one HR in four seasons), but he makes up for that flaw in his game with speed and consistency. Dunn recorded clutch hit after clutch hit throughout his senior season, driving in a team-best 36 RBIs and leading the team with 43 runs scored as well.

Figured i'd make a FTP as he's currently the starting SS at Rochester and is off to a hot start. 1.194 OPS through his first two games with a HR.
