Hunter waiting for MRI's #59 nationally rated running back received a big scare last Friday night against MUS.

"I got the ball and ran for about 10 yards," added Gabriel Hunter. "Then someone hit my legs from the blind side. I fell and twisted my leg and it hurt real bad/real bad. I did not hear anything pop, but the next morning it was real swollen. Luckily, it has gone down."

Hunter went to the doctor to check out the injury the day after Labor Day.

"I did some X-rays, and he said it looked alight, but I am going back today to do a MRI. He said he could not tell what went wrong so he wanted to get some more tests on it."

The Ole Miss commit heard from the Rebel coaches on Sunday.

"Coaches Nutt and Nix called and told me that they wished me well. I was suppose to have been at their game on Saturday, but I was on crutches the next day. I couldn't walk. They just wanted to wish me well and make sure that I am still strong with my commitment. And of course, they told me to stay on my books (laugh). They are always staying on me about my books (laugh)."
