WKU running back commit Caleb Huntley was on The Hill on Saturday

After committing to WKU last month, Locust Grove, Ga. running back Caleb Huntley made his first visit to The Hill on Saturday.

Huntley visited with the coaching staff, toured the program facilities, visited campus and spent time around Bowling Green.

"It was breathtaking," he told WKU Insider.  "It was more than I expected, I can say that."

The 5-foot-11, 215-pound three-star prospect shares an equal excitement to suit for the Hilltoppers and join the team's electric offense. Known as a pass-happy, high-octane offense, WKU's ground game has also produced 1,000-yard rushers each year during Jeff Brohm's tenure. In fact, WKU has enjoyed a 1,000-yard rusher for six consecutive seasons.

The expectation is the Huntley will follow the trend of high production running backs at WKU.  The staff continued to express their excitement to see him work in a HIlltopper uniform.

"That they are glad to have me and they wish I could suit up right now," he said.  "I could be the next running back star at WKU."

Huntley also held scholarship offers from Minnesota, Georgia State, Mercer and Elon before committing to WKU.  North Carolina, Miami of Ohio, Chattanooga and Appalachian State are among the others that expressed a high interest.

While unsure of any dates at this point, Huntley is already looking forward to returning for another visit.

"I'm not sure which ones, but I'll be on campus again for sure."
