Army Jr Combine: Pa. LB Lists U-M 1st

Linebacker Jeremiah Hunter from Manheim, Pa., Central was probably the fastest linebacker prospect at the U.S. Army Combine.<br><br> And guess who leads for him (okay, we gave it away!).<br>

Manheim, Pa., Central linebacker Jeremiah Hunter is no stranger to Michigan.

Jeremiah was a Michigan Camper last summer, where he was the fastest 'backer at camp, and where he was offered a U-M scholarship.

At the U.S. Army Combine this past weekend, the 6-2, 200-plus pounder was hampered by a cast (and a lot of tenderness) from a broken arm he suffered in Manheim Central's State Semi-finals game.

But Hunter still ran an excellent 4.7 (electronic) sec. 40 yard dash at the Combine, and he displayed the speed and 'smooth quickness' that gives him the 'look' more of a 'big-speed' running back on the field than a linebacker.

In fact, Hunter plays both linebacker and running back for his high school team. But he worked out with the 'backers at the Combine and told us, "Linebacker is where I plan to play in college."

GoBlueWolverine chatted with Hunter on and off through out the Combine. And he made no bones about his mutual fondness for the Wolverines:

"Michigan is definitely my leader," he told us.
