2017 4-star Linebacker Jaden Hunter Breaks Down His Visit To Florida State

One of the top linebackers in the 2017 class took a visit to Florida State last weekend. Find out how it went here.

Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake 2017 4-star linebacker Jaden Hunter took a visit to Florida State for the Miami game. It was Hunter's second visit to Tallahassee in the last three months after he attended the Jimbo Fisher Camp in July. Hunter was able to take in a game this time and came away extremely impressed with the atmosphere and the visit overall.

"It was a great visit," Hunter said. "I got to spend some good time with the players, and got to see the FSU atmosphere. It was great."

Hunter is the younger brother of Florida State defensive back Tyler Hunter, who is a redshirt senior for the Seminoles. The two talk frequently and Tyler has talked to Jaden about coming to play for Florida State.

"Yeah he has," Hunter said. "He wants me to make the best decision for me though."

Having his older brother on the team does help Florida State for Hunter though.

"It does a lot," Hunter said. "It shows me the image of me playing there with my last name on the Jersey."

Hunter was able to talk with Florida State linebacker's coach Bill Miller before the game.

"We talked about how he's gonna use me at LB and what they have planned for the team," Hunter said.

Hunter came to the Florida State game with 2017 4-star defensive back Jamyest Williams and 4-star defensive end Malik Herring. Herring and Hunter have both expressed the desire for all three to play together at the next level.

Hunter, 6-foot-3, 220-pounds, is the No. 4 linebacker and No. 106 player overall in the 2017 Scout 300. He does not have any other visits planned at this point, but does have high interest in Alabama and Georgia as well as Florida State.
