"It's down to Miami, Florida State, and North Carolina State," Hester said. "They're all in the race. It's tough to tell who's on top because I still have two important visits left."
At 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, Hester is now getting ready for track season, in which he competes in the 55m, 65m, and 100m. He ran a 10.7 at the state meet a year ago, which was electronically timed. Clearly, he's one of the fastest players in the state.
"N.C. State gives me a good opportunity to play right away," he said. "Florida State has a lot of young players that I could play with, and I think I could really fit in that way. Miami has the best team and they have great coaches. Plus, they put a lot of guys into the League."
Hester, who spoke to UM Coach Curtis Johnson on Wednesday, had something interesting to say.
After saying all year how much he wanted to play wide receiver in college, it now appears Hester could end up playing cornerback afterall.
"Everyone is recruiting me as an athlete now," he said. "I'm definitely interested in playing defensive back. Wherever I can get a chance to play and make an impact."
Hester will receive in-home visits from N.C. State (Tuesday), Georgia (Wednesday), and Miami (Thursday) next week.
"I'm going to Florida State this weekend," he said. "Then I got Miami the week after. By that time, I think I'll probably know where I'm going."
Personally, it continues to sound good for Miami fans. I think this is a UM/FSU battle all the way and I think we will win it over the next couple weeks.
