The Baldwin standout already has an impressive offer list that should continue to grow over the summer. "I have seven offers right now. I have offers from Mississippi State, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Florida, Oklahoma and LSU. Georgia, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State and Tennessee are all showing a lot of interest.

"Most schools are looking at me as an offensive guard. Some of the teams are looking at me for defensive tackle also."

When asked if he has any early favorites, Hurt responded, "No, everybody is wide open. All the schools that have offered are number one on my list."

The prize recruit plans to visit several schools this summer. "This summer I want to go to some schools that I haven't been to yet. I want to go to LSU and Oklahoma. I also may go back to Florida and Georgia."

What will the Baldwin lineman consider when selecting a college? "I will look at the atmosphere of the school. I want to see how I fit with the coaches and the system. I want to see if they are looking for my kind of guard or defensive tackle. I want early playing time, but it's not a big issue."
