The NIKE camps give some prospects that may not be receiving much attention from colleges an opportunity to raise their stock and impress college scouts. On the entire NIKE camp tour it would be hard to argue that anyone raised their stock more than Lafayette (La.) St. Thomas Moore quarterback John Hundley. Hundley was receiving very little interest before the camp, but could now be nearing some major scholarship offers.
“I don’t have any offers yet, but right now I would say that I am getting a lot of attention,” Hundley said. “I got calls from Florida, Nebraska, Tulane, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Tulane last month. Texas A&M and Florida sound like they might be close to offering. They told me I would fit in well with their program and that they wanted to see me in camp.”
Hundley checked in at 6-foot-3, 208 pounds and ran a 4.8-second 40-yard dash. He has a 250-pound bench press and 350-pound squat.
“Right now I would say that my favorites are Florida, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Nebraska and Tulane,” Hundley said. “Florida is recruiting me the hardest, but Texas A&M is right there with them. Coach Zaunbrecher from Florida called and coach Fobbs from Texas A&M.”
As a junior, Hundley completed 59 of 110 passes for 900 yards and 11 touchdowns with only five interceptions.
“The week after the NIKE camp my coach that a lot of schools were calling and asking about me and wanting film,” Hundley said. “I started getting calls from colleges and they started coming by the school. Florida, Nebraska, Tulane and TCU all came by.”
Hundley earned honorable menion all-district honors behind Early Doucet as a junior.
