Hunter still on Mizzou's radar
Victor Solomon Hunter expects to receive some at the beginning of the season.While he doesn't currently have any offers,
"A lot of schools said they just want to see me play a couple of games this fall," Hunter said. "I should be receiving offers from schools after that, or at least that's what they told me."
Hunter currently attends Roosevelt High School in San Antonio, and he plays both running back and linebacker. At 6-foot-2, 213-pounds, he says that many college coaches see him as a linebacker. Some schools, like Missouri, see him as a running back.
"Because of my size, Mizzou thinks I would be a good fit at running back," Hunter said. "But honestly, I'll play anywhere I'm told to play."
Hunter said Missouri assistants Cornell Ford and Craig Kuligowski have recruited him, and he enjoyed the coaches visit down to his high school in the spring. Growing up a fan, Hunter said Missouri always interested him, especially after their receive conference shift.
"I always liked Missouri as a kid and how that they're in the SEC, the appeal is even stronger because of what that conference represents," Hunter said.
Hunter is expected to name his top five schools in August, and that list could include schools such as Missouri, New Mexico, Wake Forest, North Texas, UTSA, Purdue and Oklahoma State -- all of which have shown interest. He is already planning on visiting Wake Forest in the fall, but says Missouri will get a visit from him for sure.
"I just have a good relationship with the coach that came down to see me," Hunter said.
Hunter said he expects to make his decision during football season, but he would prefer it to be early in the year so that he can remain focused on the season.
