Gunter Still Drawing Interest

Stephenville, Texas receiver Brice Gunter is committed to Texas State but teams continue to pursue the talented 2013 prospect.

Stephenville, Texas wide receiver Brice Gunter committed to Texas State in June and with his commitment the Bobcats landed one of the best hidden gems in the state.

At 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, Gunter was named his district's most valuable player in 2011 after hauling in over 1,000 receiving yards and 15 scores while helping the Yellow Jackets to an 11-3 record.

Gunter received an early offer from Air Force while receiving interest from Baylor, TCU, North Texas and Tulsa among others. When Texas State offered, Gunter felt comfortable in making his commitment to the Bobcats.

"It felt like it was the right thing to do and they have some big opportunities for me," he said. "I can go in and get some playing time. I feel good about my commitment right now."

In what has become the norm, once one school offers many more usually fall in line. Gunter says he's received interest from several more schools but is holding steady with the two offers.

"A little bit, some of the other schools that Texas State has played have contacted me," he said. "I don't have any other offers right now but we're kind of waiting around to see what happens."

TCU has a connection to Stephenville with Greg Winder (former TCU QB coach Dick Winder's son) and Gunter says he hasn't heard much from the Frogs lately but would definitely like to.

"Yes, I would love to hear from TCU but I haven't heard anything since they came down," he said. "I'm not really trying to wait on it. The day that Tyler went to go throw I was going to go with him but I wasn't able to go and I wasn't able to go to any other camps."

Another school high on Gunter's list is Baylor which is no surprise since Art Briles is now the Bears coach and considered a legend in Stephenville. The Bears continue to show him interest and in return, Gunter is listening.

"I made it to their camp after the 7on7 tournament and they're real interested but they're just kind of waiting to see the first couple of games to see how I do," he said. "They're still high on my list."
