Recruit Update: Gerald Munns

Gerald Munns has had a busy summer preparing for a state title run with his fellow Hamilton High School teammates. Amid all the hard work and training, Munns must also find time to deal with college recruiters who are interested in the services of this all-state linebacker.

Hamilton High School is known as a football powerhouse throughout the state of Arizona. Coming back this year after a state championship season, the team is once again drawing attention for their talent. Of the many talented players on the team, one that should be noted by Cougar fans is linebacker/defensive end prospect Gerald Munns.

"I have been getting lots of calls, lots of emails and letters," said Munns. "I've had calls from BYU, Utah, San Diego State, OSU (Oregon State), UCLA, and Colorado State has already offered me."

Of note is that Oregon State contacted Munns inquiring about his willingness to play defensive end. At 6'4" and 226 pounds, Munns is certainly able and willing to play D-end should he get the call.

"I love playing Linebacker, but I love the game and will play wherever I could in college," he said.

Regarding the contact that he has had with BYU, Munns said: "I've spoken with coach Tidwell several times; he seems like a great coach and guy. I think BYU is a great school with a great football program, and I definitely could see myself playing there."

Munns is LDS, but at this point has no plans to serve a mission.

Munns boasted impressive numbers as a junior recording 122 tackles and 4 sacks. He noted that these numbers could have been even higher.

"We only played one half, by the third quarter we were up by so much that the second team would take over," said Munns.

The Hamilton defense was recognized as the best in Arizona last season. Munns earned all-region, and all-state honors, and is an all-American candidate for the upcoming season. He has spent the summer working hard and attending team camps, as Hamilton High coaches prefer to keep the team together during the summer.

Munns Lists his top five schools as BYU, Utah, UCLA, CSU, and OSU. He plans on taking his recruiting trips and seeing how each school pursues him.

"The Utah schools are definitely at the top of the list," Munns confided. "In the end though, I will go to whoever shows me the most interest."
