Devils Offer Top SC WR

Last year Reynaldo Hunter played second fiddle to Duke bound teammate Jomar Wright. Heading into his senior season, Wright looks to be the featured receiver for Duncan (S.C.) James F. Byrne High. Like Wright he's also getting major Duke interest early on.

"Duke was my first offer," said Reynaldo Hunter. "I've also got Georgia, Wake Forest, Clemson, Louisville, Kentucky, Duke, Vanderbilt, Maryland, North Carolina, NC State, and Michigan sending me stuff all the time."

The early interest is certainly warranted as the 5-foot-11, 175 pound Hunter has developed a reputation as one of the nation's fastest players, who is able to break away from his opponent with relative ease.

It showed during his junior season when Hunter recorded 42 catches for an amazing 856 yards and nine touchdowns. If you're scoring at home, that's a 20.4 yards per catch average.

Hunter's success on the field is a product of his work in the weight room where he's able to bench 265 pounds while squatting 365. He's also been timed at 4.4 in the forty.

Earlier this year Hunter had a chance to visit the Duke campus for junior day, and the experience gave him a chance to become more aquainted with the Blue Devils' new look program.

"It was a good experience," Hunter said of his visit to Durham. "We had a chance to watch the basketball team against Maryland, which was really cool."

The interest by Duke may be paying off as Hunter is listing the Blue Devils among his top five choices at this point.

"My favorites are Georgia, NC State, Clemson, and Duke, but the only one that as offered is Duke."

Hunter is willing to go anywhere to display his talents, including a variety of combines such as the MSL Combine in Atlanta.

"I've been invited to the Adidas Camp at NC State, and I'm debating if I should go to the Bowden QB/WR camp in Alabama. I'll go to two or three day camps like at Duke and Appalachian State and other schools."

So what is important for Reynaldo as he begins to move forward with his recruiting process?

"I want to go somewhere that I fit in; somewhere I fit in. I'll also look at all the usual stuff like facilities, coaching staff, and overall college atmosphere."
