"Maryland, Duke, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Nebraska, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Michigan, Auburn and Purdue have all show interest," stated Hunter in a recent interview with CUTigers.com. "South Carolina has sent a questionnaire. I haven't heard from Clemson yet."

When asked who the early favorites are, Hunter responded, "North Carolina State, Georgia, Florida State, Florida and Miami."

Hunter traveled to Durham earlier this month to enjoy Junior Day at Duke. "I went to Duke's Junior Day. I got to see Duke play Maryland in basketball. It was a great experience," said Hunter.

All schools are recruiting the 5-11, 175 pound speedster as a wide receiver at this time. Hunter had a very impressive junior campaign as he caught 42 passes for 857 yards and 9 touchdowns.

"I have good speed. I catch the ball well. I also block well down the field away from the ball. I plan to work on my agility this year. I want to get faster going side to side."

Hunter grew up in Florida and pulled for the Florida State Seminoles as a youngster. "I would love to get back to Florida," stated the prize recruit.

What will the Byrnes star consider when selecting the college of his choice? "First of all I will look at academics. Then I will see if I fit in at the school. I want to go where I fit in and feel comfortable."
