Is wide-out Broderick Hunter the next great Humble, Texas, receiver to follow Miami star David Boston?
“We never see those guys around here anymore,” Hunter said. “I’ve seen him on television, but don’t know that much about him. He’s a big dude, but I’m trying to do my own thing.”
While Boston was one of Houston’s all-time great athletes, Hunter is hanging his own shingle.
Hunter (6-1, 211-pounds) is looking to improve on his junior season, which earned him second-team all-district honors and several scholarship offers. The north Houston wide-out has been offered by Nebraska, Kansas, Arkansas, Wisconsin and Texas A&M to date, and currently favors the Huskers and really likes Oklahoma.
“I like both of those teams because they have programs that are going to throw the ball,” he said. “And those two programs have some great offensive-minded coaches there right now.”
Hunter also favors Texas Tech and LSU, which have not offered.
One of the area’s star wide-outs will be featured in a high-octane offense with senior quarterback Jamaal Pettiford and junior receiver Jerrod Johnson – a 6-6, 210-pound future prospect.
“We are preseason ranked pretty high right now,” he says. “I think we can live up to the hype if everyone takes care of their business. I’m really looking forward to the season.”
