In recent years, Princeton (N.J.) Hun School has produced several top BCS level recruits. The Class of 2013 also has a few intriguing prospects, one of which is 6-foot-6, 265-pound defensive tackle Hunter Knighton.
"Recruiting is pretty good," said Knighton. "I'm looking to hear back from some schools. Army, Pitt, West Virginia, Navy, Princeton and Brown have showed some solid interest so far."
Knighton is in the process of scheduling a few visits.
"My coach and I are looking at what junior days I want to go to this week," said Knighton. "I'm pretty sure I'm set on going out to Pitt and Navy."
One of the intriguing parts of Knighton's game is his versatility.
"Pitt was talking to me about playing a stand up end position last spring, but with the new coaching staff they seem to like me inside more as a defensive tackle," said Knighton. "Navy likes me as an offensive tackle or defensive lineman."
During this off-season Knighton has a few goals in mind.
"I've been trying to get bigger and faster," said Knighton. "I'm working out with Wendy Laurent and David Dudeck, who have a pretty good formula for that. I've put on twenty or so pounds since I came into the school. I'm looking to be around 280-pounds by next season."
Knighton transferred over from Hill School in Pottstown, Pennsylvania and explained his decision.
"My brother, who also went to Hill was looking into a postgraduate year at Hun," said Knighton. "After contacting Coach Dudeck, he wanted me and my brother to come together. At the time my brother just got offered by Holy Cross, so he ended up taking that, but after seeing the type of coach Coach Dudeck is and the players Hun has here, I knew this was a great place to improve my game."
