Jeremiha Hunter has decided which high school he'll be attending his senior year. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder with 4.55-second speed is headed to Harrisburg High School in Harrisburg, Pa. The linebacker just met up with his new team this week, what does he think about the change?
"I'm still getting adjusted to the new school," he said. "It's not too hard and I just got done with my first day of training with them and everything went good. The coaches at Harrisburg are pretty cool and really nice guys. They are coaches with a good amount of history and they work hard. They also have nice facilities there."
Hunter starts two-a-days with Harrisburg on August 15th.

The Rivals100 linebacker is planning to wait until the beginning or middle of the season before naming his official visits, but the prospect does have a few schools he's considering.
"I have some schools in mind I'd like to visit including Tennessee, Iowa, Florida and Georgia," he said. "I haven't decided on the other one quite yet. All these schools are recruiting me hard and they all want to show me first-hand what they have. Those are also the schools I'm very interested in going to.
"On the visits I'm going to be looking at how I fit in the program. Also how comfortable I am there and how I interact with the players, coaches and campus as a whole."
The No. 67 player in the country went on to discuss what he likes about each school.
"Iowa is like the perfect situation for me because they are graduating their top three linebackers this year. I like the coaching staff as both coach Wilson and Ferentz are really nice guys," he said. "I'm a little shaky on Florida because the coach down there talked about moving me to fullback. I'm not really down with that, but I do like what they've got going on with the facilities and their new coach from Utah who I think will make Florida better.
"Georgia has had a pretty solid defense the last few years and their players get drafted well. That's a really great school if you play defense."
One school surprisingly absent from Hunter's list of officials was Michigan.
"I still like Michigan a lot," he said. "I've seen Michigan so much though. I might take an official there, but I can go up there anytime and look around."
With Hunter most likely getting his visits out of the way during the season, when is he considering a decision?
"I think it'll be on Signing Day," he said. "If it's sooner I have no problem telling anybody, but we'll see."
The No. 5 outside linebacker in the country says his broken arm is nearly to full-strength.
"I'm working that back and I'd say it's at about 97-percent," he said. "By the time the season comes it should be good to go."
The four-star prospect compiled 1,100 yards rushing and 24 touchdowns along with 143 tackles, five sacks and four interceptions. He was named first team AAA all-state by the AP and Pennsylvania Football News and all-conference on both sides of the ball.
Hunter boasts an impressive 3.2 GPA.
