2017 Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake four-star linebacker Jaden Hunter has five official visits planned, including Michigan.

In January, 2017 Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake four-star linebacker Jaden Hunter made a commitment to the University of Georgia.

Now June, Hunter is open to the idea of another school swooping in to steal that verbal commitment away from the Bulldogs.

Currently holding 33 offers, Hunter made his way to one of Michigan's satellite camps in Georgia last week.

"Really (just here) to just see my boys out here competing and trying to get that offer they all want," Hunter told The Michigan Insider.

"Just, it's a good thing to see my teammates out here trying to compete. It's what I want to do."

Hitting camps this summer, come fall, Hunter says he'll take five official visits including USC, Georgia, Michigan Wolverines, Alabama, and LSU.

Which weekends those visits will be remains to be seen.

"I actually don't (know) but I'm going to plan to make the dates some time before the season," Hunter said.

As for the Wolverines, Hunter says the coaching staff, particularly defensive coordinator Don Brown and head coach Jim Harbaugh, keep in close contact.

"They talk to me probably every week," he said. "I feel love from all of the coaching staff."

Still verbally committed to Georgia, Hunter believes the odds are against all the other programs to successfully flip him by national signing day.

"More than likely I'm going to see but I'd say it's a 90-percent chance I'm going to stick with it," Hunter said.

"I'd have to see something, I don't really know. It's just a feeling,"

As far as the factors that'll play into Hunter's decision to firm up his commitment to Georgia or head elsewhere, it'll pretty much come down to comfort.

"I'd say scheme and if it feels more like home than my decision that I've already made."

Hunter says distance is not a factor in his recruitment.
