Hunter Still Wants To Visit Oklahoma State

Defensive tackle Chuck Hunter of West Monroe, La., said his visit to TCU was good and that committing to the Horned Frogs over the weekend was something that he was wanting to do. But he says that he still wants to make his official visit to Oklahoma State later this month.

"Yes, I like Coach (Rusty) Burns and I went on my visit thinking that I was going to commit," said the 6-1, 290-pound Hunter.

Asked what stood out on the visit and Hunter said, "everything."

Hunter had been recruited by a number of schools in the southeast and in Lousiana, but he had said before Christmas that he was looking for a "big" school, something special.

Baylor has continued to show interest and Hunter has visits set up with Missouri (Jan. 21) and Oklahoma State (Jan. 28).

Asked about the status of those plans and whether he was going to shut down his recruiting, he said, "I'm not going to Missouri now, but I want to visit Oklahoma State. I'm just want to see Oklahoma State."

Last fall, Hunter was named Class 5A Defensive MVP and first team All-State. He led West Monroe to a perfect 15-0 mark as a junior. As a senior, Hunter collected 82 tackles, including 14 in a pivotal regular-season game against Neville and nine each in the semifinals versus Westgate and the championship against Acadiana. He suffered a high ankle sprain but played through it in the state championship game.

"It's not healed yet," said Hunter. "I still need to go for rehab and treatment."

Hunter said he still plans on participating in track and field this spring. Hunter throws the shotput.
