"Unfortunately my coach leaked it out," Hunt said. "I told most of the coaches who recruited me but not everyone. I felt I owed that to them and didn't want them to have to hear it second hand.
"As for my commitment to USC, I'm very excited about it. Like I said yesterday, I think it's a great fit for me. I love the football team there and the staff. I think the offense will be great to play in and they have a big need for running backs next year.
"I think my style will fit in well there. I'm a big back with speed who can run with power and they told me that's what they were looking for. Socially, I think it's a good fit as well. I like the city and it reminds me of home. It's a great place and the distance won't be a factor for me."
