Logan Hunt, who plays for Washington County High School, chose to visit Vanderbilt despite his verbal commitment to Georgia Southern since last August.

"The first thing that comes to mind (with Vanderbilt) is academics," Hunt said. "I'm actually driving to the school right now so I can start my official visit in the morning so I'll know a lot more after the weekend.

"I just received the Vanderbilt offer last Thursday which was January 8th from Coach (Kenwick) Thompson. I'm excited to go up there and see what it's like. I know a little about the football side and Coach Mason, but what I know most about the school is the high academics.

"I play on both sides of the football (At Washington County), but Vanderbilt likes me for defense. They saw my film and told me they loved how I was flying all the the field making plays. That it's rare to find someone who can drop back in pass coverage but also lineup with his hand on the ground and rush the passer."

Hunt gave his committed to Georgia Southern in August, but wanted to make at least one other official visit than Georgia Southern in January.

"I'm just going to take one other official visit," Hunt said. "Next weekend I'll be at Georgia Southern, then I'll be done. I'm still committed (to Georgia Southern) but I wanted to take the Nashville trip and kind of see what (Vanderbilt) has to offer."

Washington County played in the GHSA Class AAA championship game for the second year in a row on December 13th at the Georgia Dome, but fell to Calhoun by a touchdown. Hunt was named first team all-state and first team all-region for a second straight year.
