6-0, 205 pound linebacker prospect Stanley Hunter has kept two offers under the radar until recently.
"Yeah, that is true. I actually got the offers about a month or two ago. I got offers from both Clemson and Georgia. It is all dependent on my grades. I told them to keep it quiet. Coach Bentley wanted to go ahead and put it out there," Hunter told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
"My grades are not where I want them to be. It's a personal thing. They are good enough for Clemson, but not where I want them."
Hunter's offer total now stands at three. "North Carolina was the first to offer," he said. "I am also hearing from Auburn, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech."
When asked if he has any favorites, Hunter responded, "Of course I have to respect UNC since they were my first offer. Where I really want to go is Clemson or Georgia. I breathe Clemson and Georgia," said Hunter.
"I'm trying to make my mind up with my family."
The Byrnes standout will visit his top two schools over the next two weeks. "I am going to Georgia on Saturday. Then I will be going to Clemson on April 8th for the spring game. I am also going to the Nike camp at Clemson," Hunter said.
The prize recruit also said he plans to make a decision before his senior campaign. "I have Prince trying to pull me to Georgia and Willy trying to pull me to Clemson. I can't really say when I will commit. It is going to be early. It will be before the season starts," he said.
What will be the most important factors when Hunter makes his decision? "It will be my family. I am a grandma and grandpa's boy. I will get homesick when I go to school. I really want to be close to home. That gives Clemson a little bit of an advantage," responded Hunter.
