Aaron Dunn to Leave Washington State, Play Hoops at WWU

SPOKANE, Wash. -

Mead High graduate and current Washington State football player Aaron Dunn is leaving Pullman, and leaving football.

Dunn, who has two years of experience as a Cougar, accepted a scholarship offer to play basketball at Western Washington, the school reported Wednesday.

Dunn redshirted his first year at Washington State after breaking his wrist, and then played 10 games for the Cougars last season as a tight end and special teams player. This year, he could have seen his playing time diminish because of the new spread offense put in place by new head coach Mike Leach. Dunn's blocking ability is his greatest strength, but there is not much need for that skill set in the Cougars' new system.

In high school, Dunn played both football and basketball. He led the Panthers to a Greater Spokane League title while averaging 17 points per game. His first two years of high school were spent at Shadle Park, where he averaged 15 points and helped the Highlanders to the 3A state tournament.
