It's been a long wait since Mufi Hunt signed with Michigan State and arrived on campus as part of the 2016 class.

Class of 2015 signee Mufi Hunt had plans to wait until 2017 before reaching the Michigan State campus. But an injury saw a change to his plans and he's part of the Class of 2016 early enrollees. Spartan Digest spent some one-on-one time with Hunt about his arrival.

A year ago Mufi Hunt had a plan on how he wanted his college athletic career to start.  After signing with the Michigan State Spartans on National Signing Day, Hunt's plan was to fulfill his LDS mission work in 2017 and then head to East Lansing.

But as Hunt learned, one can only control so much in life and an injury suffered while on his mission in Mount Vernon, Virginia changed his plans and his entrance to Michigan State.

As one of eight early enrollees, Hunt is on campus and ready to continue working on rehabbing his knee and to be ready for when the Spartans need him on the field.

What did Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio say about Hunt?

“Mufi Hunt was one of the most highly recruited players who came out of the West a year ago,” said Dantonio in a press release.  “He’s a long, rangy, athletic defensive end, with unlimited potential.  Mufi if a quick-bodied lineman, who can play multiple positions on our four-man front.  He has shown great acceleration off the football.  As a midyear enrollee, Mufi will be provided with the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge early on, both on and off the field.”

Spartan Digest spoke one-on-one with Hunt at the early enrollees press conference.
