NW NIKE camp report - Adam Hunter

There are a glut of incredibly talented linebackers this year in the Northwest. Kentwood's Tahj Bomar is getting plenty of early attention, but Fife's Adam Hunter is a name Husky fans should remember. The 6-2, 232-pound LB prospect is making the rounds this summer to make sure he isn't a player that falls through the cracks during the recruiting process.

"It was cool getting out there, covering the running backs and receivers," Adam told Dawgman.com after the NW NIKE camp in Eugene, Oregon last Saturday. "That was the best part, mixing it up and talking a little trash."

Hunter ran a 4.87 40, 4.49 shuttle and repped 185 pounds 12 times. The testing phase of the camp gave Adam an idea of what he's going to focus on during the off-season. "My speed and agility, mostly," he said. "I'll still be lifting weights a little bit to keep my strength up, but mobility is what I want to work on the most."

Adam attended Oregon's mini-camp last Sunday and is scheduled to attend the Husky camp starting the 22nd and then will travel to Pullman to check out Washington State's camp for a day.

Who is recruiting Hunter the hardest right now? "U-Dub, Oregon, Oregon State, Wazzu and Arizona State," he said. "I've talked to Coach (Randy) Hart and Coach (Rick) Neuheisel and a guy from Nevada came by my school. A coach from Washington State came by my school too."

The first scholarship offer is still eluding him. "I'm still waiting," he said.
