He's only a rising sophomore but Class of 2017 Atlanta (Ga.) Riverwood defensive end Jaden Hunter has already picked up his first two offers, courtesy of Indiana and Louisville. Now he's hoping he can add some more schools to his list by the time summer is over.
"Georgia, Auburn and Florida are all talking to me now," the 6-foot-3, 200-pound lineman said. "They've been sending me mail and talking to me on Twitter so I think they're interested."
Hunter, who will compete at the Rivals250 Underclassmen Challenge presented by Under Armour this weekend, said he has some on campus camp events scheduled as well.
"I'm going to go to camp at Georgia and Florida State by the end of this month," said Hunter, who has family ties to both programs. "My dad Brice Hunter played at Georgia in the 1990's and my brother Tyler Hunter plays for Florida State."
Hunter said he plans to visit his brother as well as camp with the 'Noles.
"I will do some football stuff there but I'm going to go see my brother and hang out with him," he said. "But I have a lot of interest in Florida State because I know a lot about the program so hopefully I can impress them, too."
Following his Florida swing, Hunter will be back in North Georgia for a closer look at the 'Dawgs.
"I'm just looking forward to learning stuff and meeting some of the coaches," Hunter said. "I want to meet some of the defensive coaches. I know Coach Pruitt from Florida State but I want to know the other guys who will be coaching me at my position."
Hunter said an offer from Georgia would vault the nearby program up his list.
"It really would mean a lot because my father played there," Hunter said. "I think if I do well they will offer me so we'll see what I can do."
