Virginia Dual-Threat Standout Talks Terps
The question, though, is whether the Terps can lure from the Commonwealth a prized prospect who has offers from Virginia and Virginia Tech.
"Maryland's just about an in-state [school], so it's not a [matter] of in-state," Hunter said.
when asked about the importance of location.
Hunter has been to Maryland twice, once for the Boston College football game last season and recently for Junior Day. He's toured the facilities and met with the staff, and he plans to possibly make another trip to College Park.
Hunter on his recruiter, offensive line coach Tom Brattan: "He's a great guy. When I first met him, I was already interested because of the way he talks."
On the Terps facilities and Gossett Team House. "They gave me a tour of the place with all of their hall of fame guys, the auditorium, the gym and everything. It's all right there, it's not spread out. And you've got the football field right there. It's nice."
Hunter is being recruited by the Terps as an athlete on offense with the possibility of playing quarterback. Virginia likes him at wide receiver, while Virginia Tech has mentioned quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back. Stanford, the other program to have offered him, likes him as a quarterback.
"I'm a dual-threat kind of guy on offense but I can play defense, too. But I don't think Maryland wants me for defense," Hunter said.
Hunter said his top priority is getting onto the field early on. Other than that, he's not sure what he'll find the most attractive or when he'll make a decision. But he doesn't think it'll be soon.
"It's going to be a while before I know where I want to go," he said.
