One of the biggest stock increases of the LSU NIKE camp came from Lafayette (La.) St. Thomas Moore quarterback John Hundley. Everyone knew what Ryan Perrilloux brought to the table, but Hundley proved on Sunday that he is a big time quarterback prospect in his own right. He put a crisp spiral on the ball and had the second strongest arm there on the day behind Perrilloux.
“I felt like I had a good camp,” said Hundley. “Things went very well and I was happy with my performance. That’s the first time I’ve had a chance to go against a guy like Ryan Perrilloux and I felt I hung right in with him. I knew going in that if I was on, I could.”
The 6-foot-3, 208 pound Hundley ran a 4.8 40-yard dash and did 10 reps on the bench press. His bench press max is 250 pounds while squat is 350.
“The last two weeks a lot of schools have been coming by to the school and talking to my coach. I don’t have any offers yet, but I am getting a lot of interest right now. Auburn, Tulane and Baylor are the schools that are on me the hardest right now.”
As a junior he earned all-district honorable mention behind Early Doucet. He completed 59 of 110 passes for 900 yards and 11 touchdowns in an injury shortened season.
“My top five right now would have to be Ole Miss, Auburn, LSU, Tulane and South Carolina. I have been an LSU fan my whole life so that would be my dream school, but I don’t really have a favorite right now.”
This summer Hundley plans to attend camps at Auburn and Ole Miss.
“I’m looking for a school with high academic standards. The coaching staff is also very important to me as well as the style of offense they run. I want to go to a school that wins a lot, no one wants to play for a losing team. Distance from home is not a big factor for me.”
