He is a big target that it not a blazer, but he has good quickness and knows how to run routes and get open. Clarke Central plans to open the offense up this year so look for Micah's stats to really improve this season.

Hurst is starting to get attention from coaches in the college ranks.

"Ball State was the first to offer" Hurst said. Coach DeVane (Head Coach @ Clarke Central) says " I feel Virginia is very close to offering Micah also."

With one offer on the table at this time, which schools are showing the potential to offer in the future?

"Georgia, Stanford, Ball State, Boston College, Virginia and Florida are showing me the most attention. I get a lot of letters from those schools and both Stanford and Ball State called me not too long ago."

This summer Hurst plans to attend team camps at Georgia Southern and Presbyterian College.

I asked Micah about his strengths and weakness' and this is what he had to say...

"Some of my strengths would be, I catch the ball no matter where it is thrown, so I have very good hands, I run very precise routes and I feel I learn quick and pick up new offenses very well. My weakness is my speed. I don't run a 4.4 40 or anything like that. I am working to improve my speed the best I can this summer."

What does Micah aim to achieve this football season?

"As far as team goals, I want to get into at least the third round of the playoffs this year. I still think about the first round loss last year. I have no personal goals. I never have. As long as the team does well I am satisfied."

Does Micah have a top five or a leader?

"I don't have a top five really, but I do have a Coach I would love to play for. Playing for Lou Holtz is a dream of mine. If South Carolina offered it would be hard for me not to commit. South Carolina is definitely my leader."

Hurst said would like to stay in the South if possible. He also said, "I would like to commit early if the opportunity is there. I do understand I may need to play out the entire season to give myself the best options though."

Hurst is in great position academically. "I have a 3.7 GPA and have scored a 970 on my first SAT attempt. I will take the SAT again because I know I can do better."
