Hunter into double digits

CLIFTON, Va. -- Devon Hunter is one of the top 2017 prospects in the country. The Chesapeake (Va.) Indian River standout, who already has double-digit scholarship offers, spoke with Scout.com at last weekend's NFTC.

"I'm up to 12 offers," said Devon Hunter. "My last offer was from Clemson. I was extremely happy about it."

Along with the Tigers, Marshall, Maryland, Massachusetts, Navy, North Carolina, Old Dominion, Temple, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest have all offered the 6-foot-2, 207-pound Hunter.

However, those are the not the only schools pursuing the Indian River star.

"I'm also getting recruited by Alabama, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina State and James Madsion," he said.

Hunter has not taken any college visits lately, but is looking forward to the summer.

"I'm camping at West Virginia, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, maybe Alabama, maybe LSU and some other schools down South," he said.

While he is enjoying the recruiting process, Hunter's main focus is preparing for his sophomore season.

"This year, I have to work harder because I'm going to be playing a lot on both sides of the ball," he said. "I just want to become a better all-around player.

"Team-wise, we're ready to bounce back from last year. We want to make the playoffs. It's going to take hard work and dedication."

As a freshman, Hunter finished with 681 yards passing, 604 rushing, 115 receiving and 14 total touchdowns. Defensively, he had 36 tackles, an interception and five pass breakups.
