FL LB Visiting Wake This Weekend

Hunter Haynes, from Nease High School, is a tackling machine from his middle linebacker position. Since the loss to Hoover (Ala.) the Panthers have recorded two to back-to-back shutouts. Haynes will travel to Wake Forest and then to Tuscaloosa for the Alabama-Florida game along with several teammates.

"I know Charlie [Kirschman, Alabama verbal commit] and Tim [Tebow] plan on going to the Alabama-Florida game next weekend," said Hunter Haynes. "I am going to the Wake Forest-Maryland game this weekend."

"I have not been to any other games. I still have not set up any official visits," Haynes added.

The Alabama-Florida game is shaping up as one of the top college football games in the country when the first day of October arrives. Haynes is excited about the big match-up.

"It's going to be a really big game. Alabama has a great, great defense. Florida's defense is starting to come around as well. They played very well against Tennessee. Florida's offense is always good, and Alabama is really starting to roll on offense too," said Haynes.

When asked of the college coaches calling Haynes replied, "I have received a good bit of calls this month. I have talked to Coach [Buddy] Wyatt from Alabama, Coach [Al] Borges from Auburn, and a coach from Ohio State. I have talked to a few schools who have offered me as well. UCLA, Stanford, Colorado, Georgia Tech and UConn have called."

"I don't have any favorites right now. I am waiting to see what a few of these schools do before I narrow down my list," Haynes added.

The Panthers have been successful since the loss to Hoover, and Haynes continues to shine from week-to-week.

"The season is going really good," he said. "We beat Sanford Seminole 40-0, and we beat Fleming Island 53-0. We just have to keep playing good."

"I have either 49 or 50 tackles so far. I had 12 tackles in our last game. I have four sacks as well. We build a very big lead before half-time. I usually don't play in the third quarter. Hopefully, I will get to play a full game," Haynes added.

The 6-2, 226-pound linebacker holds offers from UConn, UCLA, Colorado, Wake Forest, Stanford, Air Force, Army, Navy, Toledo, Florida International, Ball State and Southern Miss.
