Haynes Liked Visit

Hunter Haynes, from Nease High School in St. Augustine, Florida, attended the Alabama-Florida game Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Haynes joined teammates Tim Tebow and Tide commit Charlie Kirschman in Tuscaloosa and all left impressed.

"The visit went great," said Hunter Haynes. "The game was awesome. I went up there with Tim and Charlie. The atmosphere was great."

"Alabama out-hustled and out-hit Florida. They wanted to win the game more than Florida. It was a great display of defense, and the offense played good as well," Haynes added.

Haynes spoke with several Tide coaches after the game, and he is anxious for their arrival in St. Augustine Friday night.

"I talked to Coach [Mike] Shula, Coach [Buddy] Wyatt and Coach [Joe] Kines. I talked to everybody. They are coming to watch us play Friday night against St. Augustine. Hopefully, I can do well. I think I am second on their board right behind Toryan Smith. I am going to impress them Friday night. We'll see what happens after that. Maybe I will receive an offer," Haynes said.

The St. Augustine game is the biggest game of the year in the eyes of the Nease players. They have been looking forward to this game for a long time.

"This our biggest game," Haynes said. "We have been preparing for this game since the summer. They are one of the best teams in the state. This is the type of game we can't wait to play in."

Tide linebacker commit Charlie Kirschman injured his ankle three weeks ago, but is expected to return to action this Friday.

"Charlie is doing well," Haynes said. "He is going to play Friday night. This is the game he has been waiting on. He might not play every down, but he will play."

When asked of a return visit to Bryant-Denny Stadium Haynes replied, "I don't have any plans right now. I talked to Charlie the other day. He wants to go back to an Alabama game. He and Tim (Tebow) both want to go back, and I will probably go with them."

Haynes is having a monster senior season, and he has acquired several new offers as well.

"My latest offers are from Oregon, Michigan State and Arizona," said Haynes. "I'm still hearing from a lot of the same schools, but they are going to wait and see me in person before they offer."

"We won our game last we 76-0. I only played about three series in the game. I have about sixty tackles this season. I recorded nineteen tackles in two games. One of those games was against Hoover (Alabama)," Haynes added.

Haynes remains open with his list of favorites.
