Hulick not ready for commitment

Carl Hulick lists SMU as his favorite but the Anaheim (Calif.) Esperanza offensive lineman said he doesn't want to commit yet because more offers could be coming in by the start of his senior season.
The 6-foot-2, 280-pound prospect who shined at the B2G Elite Camp earlier this summer is expected to visit Nevada this weekend and then take a trip to SMU in two weeks but doesn't expect to commit yet because he doesn't want to limit his options.
"SMU is leading right now," Hulick said. "You could say that for sure. They're leading and then hopefully the Cal State Game will give me some more recognition. That should get me out there a little more but I'm definitely leading toward SMU. I really like coach (Adrian) Klemm.
"I like how he's no-nonsense. He told me I'd be able to play center and I've talked to so many people about SMU and they've got nothing but great things to say about SMU. I hope what I've heard is true when I go out there to visit.
"Coach Klemm has been putting some pressure on me to commit. I have three offers right now and I feel like I could get a few more. I don't really want to close any doors by committing."
Army, Stony Brook and SMU have offered Hulick, who also lists interest from San Diego State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and others. He said those trips to Nevada and SMU are planned and then he's going to get ready for his senior season.
Maybe he could commit to SMU during his trip there in a couple weeks but Hulick said he'd like to see which other schools offer and he doesn't want to back out of a commitment later if better offers come.
"I've been talking to coach Klemm and it's pretty much all the same," Hulick said. "I'm just talking to some schools and getting some e-mails here and there. I'm about to put my head down and get my grind on for my season."
