Dunlap (6-5, 285 lb) played in four games as a true freshman for North Carolina. He made four tackles and was credited with 0.5 sacks for the Tar Heels.
Dunlap was a three-star prospect out of Charlotte, when he signed with UNC. North Carolina officials confirmed that Dunlap was leaving the program on July 20.
Dunlap will have to sit out for the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have three years of eligibility remaining and will help Florida’s depth along the offensive line.
