Gunter helps Stephenville to UA title

Stephenville, Texas wide receiver Brice Gunter helped his team win the Under Armour 7-on-7 tournament last Saturday. He currently holds one offer.

Stephenville, Texas wide receiver Brice Gunter can be described with two simple words; fiery competitor. Any fan of the Yellow Jackets or their opponents has witnessed his competitiveness the last two seasons and is a big reason his team has been successful.

That competitiveness was evident again this past Saturday at the Under Armour 7-on-7 tournament in Cedar Hill. The Jackets won the 32-team tournament in a field that featured some of Texas' best 7-on-7 teams; Desoto, Cedar Hill and Abilene Cooper (played in final) just to name a few.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder had a spectacular junior campaign hauling in 69 catches for 1,099 yards and 15 touchdowns while helping the Jackets to an 11-3 record.

Several colleges are showing interest in the receiver and he already holds an offer from Air Force.

"Baylor, SMU, North Texas, Tulsa, quite a few big schools and little schools," he said of schools showing interest. "We're thinking Baylor may offer and Tulsa also."

Gunter says one team stands out above the rest at the moment, mainly because one of his best friends, Aiavion Edwards, signed with the Bears as part of their 2012 class.

"One of my best friends is going to Baylor so there probably my favorite for right now," Gunter said.

Another school that Gunter says could enter the picture this week is TCU. He admits he hopes to start hearing more from the Horned Frogs.

"They haven't said anything to me but they told my coach they were coming to my school in the next couple of days but other than that I haven't heard from them," he said. "I would like to hear more."

Although Gunter doesn't know much about the school, Gunter knows TCU's program is one of the best out there.

"I watched their football team and they're real good," he said. "I don't know much about the school but I really like the football team."

Gunter says he plans to attend a camp at Baylor next month and is still making plans for others.
