Andre Hunt: I'll Be Ready

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers thrust walk-on Andre Hunt into action in two straight games when adversity struck at the safety position. Hunt answered the call with solid play and limited mistakes in wins over Navy and Tulane. With the chances good that responsibility comes his way against Michigan, Hunt said he will be ready.

Andre Hunt can expect a key role when Rutgers takes the field Saturday night against Michigan. The walk-on from Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military Academy could star against the Wolverines, said coach Kyle Flood during his Sunday teleconference.

Hunt replaced an injured Delon Stephenson for key reps and a game-saving sack against Navy. He did the same against Tulane when referees ejected start Johnathan Aiken for targeting.

Hunt comes from a Big Ten family -- his father Leon Hunt played running back at Wisconsin -- and knows what a game against Michigan means personally and for the program. Hunt broke it all down 1-on-1 with, including a visit from family to see him log 16 plays with the first-team defense against Tulane.
