Corona (Calif.) Centennial players have gone to Arizona State in the past and that's one reason why offensive tackle Cameron Hunt likes the Sun Devils early on.
The 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect who has already been offered by Arizona State is heading to its junior day this weekend and he's excited to meet the new coaches and get a feel for the campus.
Arizona State is the early leader but Washington State and Colorado have also offered and Hunt said he's still open to all options.

"I haven't gotten to know the schools yet but if I had to choose a leader it would be Arizona State," Hunt said. "There is a pipeline there from Centennial. Our coaches and their coaches are really familiar with each other even though they got a new coaching staff.
"Especially with Michael Eubank being there and all the Centennial players being there it's kind of like a second home. I'm still very interested in Washington State and Colorado. Their coaches have been great and I'm open to all options right now."
The visit to Tempe this weekend is crucial to Hunt as things pick up in his recruitment and more schools get involved.
"It's really important because it's all about how the coaches react with their players and the environment out there," Hunt said. "I'm just going to go to their junior day, see how it feels and meet with the coaches and talk with them in person."
Recruiting has picked up quickly for Hunt, who said all three Pac-12 offers have come in the last few weeks.
USC is also showing interest and Hunt said he's planning to visit Colorado in April and could also stop by UCLA at some point.
"Once the first offer came I think a lot of schools were interested and they saw I got an offer so they decided to either offer me or not offer me," Hunt said.
