PSU Back in the Hunt?

Over the last couple of years, Xzavier Hunter, who is 6-0 and 215 pounds, has basically just been known as Jeremiha's little brother. Jeremiha is headed to Iowa and now it's Xzavier's turn to shine. The Harrisburg, Pa., linebacker has already picked up an offer from UConn and interest from a number of teams.

UConn offered me at the end of last season,” Xzavier Hunter said. “I’ve been getting a lot of interest from Penn State, Iowa, Pittsburgh, Illinois, Kansas State, Northwestern and Rutgers.”

Hunter took a trip to Pittsburgh last weekend for the Panthers' Junior Day. He took an unoffcial visit to Penn State in January with his brother, where they attended the Nittany Lions' basketball game against Iowa.

Hunter will strut his stuff at the Scout.Com All-American Combine at Rutgers April 23.
