Hunt focusing on three

Although the season didn't end the way he hoped, Corona (Calif.) Centennial offensive lineman Cameron Hunt said he has no regrets and has nothing but positive memories of the past season.

The Centennial program is easily among the best in the entire West region. Every year they lose 4-5 key players who sign BCS level scholarships, not much is expected and then they still go out and win 12-13 games.

After an early loss to Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure this year, expectations were low but the Huskies ran off 14 straight wins and made it to the Open Division State Championship before losing to Concord (Calif.) De La Salle over the weekend.

"I can't even be disappointed right now, we played great this season, no one expected us to get this far," Husky OL Cameron Hunt said following the game Saturday night. "We did our best, we made some mistakes and you can't do that against these guys. We played hard though, we battled to the end and that's all you can ask."

Hunt is probably the nastiest lineman in the region and fittingly ended the night and his high school season with back to back personal fouls.

"I had to go out in style," Hunt joked. The first one, they put a guy in for his first play of the game and he drills me in the back after the play was over. I got a late hit for retaliating and the next play, I guess my hand kind of got caught in his facemask a little too long. They're a good team, I have nothing but respect for them, they play hard and know how to win."

Hunt has been a California commit since last July but will take a few official visits. He now refers to himself as a soft commit.

"Sometimes I don't know what to call myself," Hunt said. "I just want to take a few visits and see where the best fit for me is. I've talked with Coach Dykes at Cal a few times and I'm still learning more about him and the direction he's going. They still haven't hired an OL coach yet so I'm waiting on that.

"I'm going to visit Michigan the weekend after the Under Armour game (Jan 11). I know David Dawson re-committed but the OL coach said they want to take six now. He's a good guy, I've talked with him a few times but I still haven't talked with Coach Hoke."

After Michigan, Hunt's next visit will likely be to Oregon and the Ducks are coming on strong.

"I really like Oregon a lot," Hunt said. "Coach Kelly has called me personally and it seems like I'm a real priority to them. I'm not just needed I'm wanted there and they're obviously a great football program. I would like to take the visit there the next weekend after Michigan and then finish it off with Cal but I still need to lock in these dates. By that time, I should have a good idea of what I want to do."
