Reynaldo Hunter Talks Clemson Visit

Reynaldo Hunter, one of the quickest receivers in the South, is waiting to see how the Tigers will fill their 2005 receiving class. How did the prize recruit enjoy his visit to Clemson over the weekend? has the latest in this recruiting update.

The 5-foot-11, 170 pound prospect visited Death Valley on Saturday to see the Tigers defeat the Wolfpack. "I liked it. I liked the atmosphere. The crowd really got into the game," Hunter told in a recent interview.

When asked who his current leader is, Hunter responded, "North Carolina State is my favorite right now. It's between North Carolina State, Clemson and North Carolina."

Although the Pack has the lead, the Tigers are the team to beat if they want the Byrnes High standout. "I like Clemson, we run the same offense. I am familiar with the system. I wanted to see how they run their system," said Hunter. Would the talented receiver choose Clemson over State if the Tigers removed the condition from their offer? "Yes, I would go to Clemson if they give me a unconditional offer."

Coach Swinney spoke extensively with Hunter during his visit. "I talked with Coach Swinney. He wanted me to come Saturday. He said there was one more slot open as far as receivers go. He said he was going to recruit me even harder."

The South Carolina standout is having an impressive senior campaign while leading Byrnes to an 8-1 record. "I have 46 catches for 650 yards. I have six touchdowns receiving and two rushing."

Hunter will wait on the Tigers before making a decision. "I will wait it out. I want to see if they come along with an offer."

The star receiver would love to play in the Clemson offense. "I love it. I like the pass happy offense. I like the out routes and the quick slants. I'm use to that. I see myself playing a role similar to Currie's role. I am a smaller, fast receiver."

Hunter will be back in the Valley later this month to see the Tigers. "I will be coming up to the Clemson game against South Carolina," stated the speedy wide out.
