There was an old saying that stated go west young man, go west. One of the east coast's top prospects could be hearing that western siren song that many adventurous people before him heard and with that pioneer spirit left the east for the promise that the west represents.
The player with his eyes toward the sunset is linebacker/running back Jeremiha Hunter (6-2, 220, 4.55) from Manheim (Pa.) Manheim Central.
Hunter visited Arizona State when the Sun Devils were participating in spring ball and took in a couple of practices and he liked what he saw in Tempe.
"I love the state of Arizona," Hunter said. "I have family who live 10 minutes from Sun Devil Stadium."
"I likes everything about the state of Arizona," Hunter said. "I could see myself living in Arizona."
Arizona isn't the only state out west Hunter is interested in. He love to hear from UCLA and USC.
Look for more western schools to put their feelers out for Hunter and why not?
Hunter is an outstanding two-way performer who was a one-man wrecking crew for Manheim Central.
On defense, Hunter racked up 143 tackles, five sacks and four picks. Two of his picks he returned for touchdowns.
On offense, he rushed for 1,100 yards and showed a nose for the end zone scoring 24 touchdowns.
Some schools like Ohio State, Georgia Tech, Georgia and Florida like Hunter as a running back. While other schools like him as a linebacker and a bunch more don't care what side of the ball he plays on as long as it is for them.
Hunter already has over 30 offers and once western schools find out that Hunter has some interest in the west, look for more offers for this talented football player.
Hunter is very open at this and his list of schools could go up before he starts to narrow things down.
Hunter has a relative playing football for UConn and he mentioned interest in the Husky program, too.
