"I verbally committed to North Carolina State," said Hunte. "I actually committed to them Monday after my practice, but didn't talk with coach O'Brien until last night.
"Coach O'Brien is a great guy. We talked about me taking my visit up there in the fall and keeping my grades up in school. I like a lot of things about them... I can't wait to get up there for a visit."
A 5-foot-10, 175-pound defensive back, Hunte also held offers from Boston College and South Florida. As a junior he totaled over 60 tackles with two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
"I'm a physical player," said Hunte. "That's what coach Archer said he liked about me. They've been on me since February and they came down and watched my film. Once I got the offer I knew I was going to be serious about them and I started to check them out even more.
"I think it's a good fit. The coaches said I'm a physical football player that is a great tackler for a corner so I fit their scheme well."
Hunte is being recruited by Wolfpack defensive coordinator Mike Archer.
"Coach Archer is a very nice guy, and I like the relationship we've been building," he said. "He has a history with players going to the NFL, and I like what I've been hearing from him. Like I said, we're building our relationship."
Hunte is NC State's fourth commitment in the 2013 recruiting class. Pack Pride will have more on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
