Devin Hester Likes Miami

Devin Hester is one of the top prospects in the entire nation this season. In this interview he talks about the outstanding season he's having so far, why Miami is one of his current favorites, and more. "Miami's always been a favorite of mine," Hester said.

At 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, Riviera Beach (Suncoast) standout Devin Hester is one of the elite wide receiver/cornerback prospects in the entire country. In three games this season, Hester has 178 yards and four touchdowns rushing, 160 yards and one touchdown receiving, 24 tackles and four interceptions on defense, and has also thrown for a touchdown. He's fully qualified inside the classroom with a 950 SAT score. Hester might be the fastest player in the state. He ripped off a 4.36 on grass at the NIKE Camp. On track, he's a 4.29 kid.

Which schools have been calling you this month: A lot of them. Florida State, Miami, Virginia, Purdue, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Michigan State, there's a lot.

Which schools have sent you scholarship offers in the mail: All of those schools and more.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: The three main schools I'm considering are Florida State, Miami, and Virginia.

Have you scheduled any visits yet: Not yet. I'll start doing that around the 8th game of the season. I'll definitely visit Florida State, Miami, and Virginia. I'm going to try to be at the Florida State/Miami game here coming up.

There were published reports saying you were no longer considering Miami: Oh, that's BS. I never said anything like that. Miami's always been a favorite of mine.

Talk about the Hurricanes: They're doing real good. They could be on their way to having a great season.

Which position are you being recruited to play: Pretty much everyone is leaving it to me. I'm being recruited as an athlete.

Personally, I think this will definitely come down to a UM/FSU battle and will come down to the very end. The winner of the game on October 13 might have the upper hand heading into the home stretch run. Perhaps the No. 1 defensive prospect in the state has big time written all over him, so stay tuned!
