Harrisburg, Pa. linebacker Jeremiha Hunter recently returned from his second official visit as he took in the sights and sounds of Knoxville, Tenn. and the Tennessee Volunteers. Although the Vols were upset by South Carolina, Hunter still had a great time.
"It was cool, the crowd was crazy there," he said. "They lost but that happens, I still had a lot of fun there."
Hunter was hosted on his visit by Roshaun Fellows and met linebackers Kevin Simon and Omar Gaither.
"Gaither is a beast, that kid is huge," said Hunter. "They were all cool and they're losing three senior linebackers so playing time is available if I work hard enough. They want me as either a SAM or WIL there which is fine with me."
There are rumors making rounds regarding the future of certain coaches at Tennessee, including Hunter's recruiting coach Jimmy Ray Stephens. Has that affected him at all.
"Not really, I mean if something happens it happens," he said. "But it affected me when coach Snyder left Michigan, it just wasn't the same after that. So I guess it might affect me, I'm not sure."
Hunter, a 6-foot-2, 220-pounder, has already visited the Vols and Iowa on official trips and hasn't named a leader. Who will he visit for his last three?
"Georgia and Florida for sure, I'm not sure of the dates yet though," he said. "My last one will be either Penn State, Ohio State or UConn. It will probably be UConn. Penn State is still in there for me but there's no need to take an official I don't think. I can go there anytime. Iowa, Tennessee, Penn State, Georgia and Florida are in it for sure."
