Five schools coming hard after Hunt

Five schools are coming after former UCLA commit Dashon Hunt the hardest and the Westlake Village (Calif.) Westlake cornerback is seriously starting to consider visits.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound four-star prospect said Cal, Nebraska, Oregon State, Washington and Arizona are showing the most interest and he's thinking about two trips so far - an official to Nebraska and an unofficial to Cal.
"It's really been the same schools that have been coming at me hard, the same top five," Hunt said. "I'm going into practice starting up this Friday with kind of the same list.
"I have some visits in mind. I know Nebraska is probably going to be one and then I'll probably take an unofficial visit to Cal. The other four official visits I don't know where I'm going to take them yet."
Nebraska is an intriguing school to Hunt, who committed early to the Bruins but has since backed off and looked at all his options. He has heard positive things about the coaching staff and the experience in Lincoln and wants to see it for himself.
No date has been finalized for Hunt's trip yet.
"I like how the coaches are interacting with me and some other California kids who have taken visits there have been saying good things about it," Hunt said. "It's a mixture of a little bit of everything so I want to see it for myself."
Hunt said he remains open to all programs and doesn't plan to make a decision until he takes his visits. After committing early the first time, the Westlake standout wants to make sure he's doing the right thing when he makes this pledge.
Rivals.com rates Hunt as the No. 23 cornerback and No. 224 in the 2013 class. He's No. 24 in the California state rankings.
In his junior season, Hunt finished with 63 tackles and six interceptions along with 1,274 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns.
