Hunt looking to add more offers

El Campo, Texas tight end Cole Hunt currently has one offer from Rice and hopes to add more in the near future; including TCU.

El Campo, Texas tight end Cole Hunt is one of the more intriguing prospects in the state. There's likely not any other tight ends from Texas that go 6-foot-7, 234-pounds with 4.6 speed.

Hunt is drawing interest from several in-state programs including Rice, Texas Tech, Baylor and TCU, where his older brother Joey signed as part of the 2012 class.

Rice has offered Hunt and more could be on the way; including TCU. Coach Eddie Williamson was in El Campo last Thursday to watch Hunt and according to the big tight end, his workout certainly impressed the coach.

"It went well," he said of his workout. "I talked to Coach Williamson (later that night) and he said he loves me a lot and says I run real well especially with all of the weight I've put on," he said. "He said I should have at least six offers from some big time schools and that I should be able to choose wherever I want to go."

While he impressed the TCU coach, an offer has not been extended just yet. However, according to Hunt, that news could change later this week.

"He said they were going to have a coaches recruiting meeting because all of the coaches were going to be in the office," he said. "He just said he loves me a lot and he definitely wanted to offer me but they had to discuss it. He said I definitely have his vote and Coach Sharp loves me a lot. That was pretty much it, he said they were going to give me a call but they only have one call but they haven't called me yet; so we'll see."

Hunt says four schools are showing him the most interest for now and are currently the schools he's looking at the most.

"Texas Tech, Baylor, TCU and Rice are the main schools in the running right now," he said.

As for camps, Hunt says he may attend Texas Tech's satellite camp in Pearland this summer but others are still up in the air.

With big brother heading to TCU this weekend, Hunt plans to accompany his family as Joey makes the transition to college life. It will also give him the opportunity to get some more time with the TCU coaches.

"He's leaving this weekend, he's getting real excited and ready to roll," Hunt said of older brother Joey.
