When Warhawk Nation went to track down Michael Hunter, it was Mr Michael Hunter(dad)that we ran into first.
"Michael has had a good spring", said his father. He has put on some weight as well. I think he is up to 175 pounds now and a little over 6'0 tall. The best thing about Michael is he is qualified with a 4.0 GPA and a 21 on his ACT".
Father and son have had a huge summer traveling to camps all over the south and turning some heads in the process.
As for official offers Mr Hunter informs us that his son has quite a few already.
Duke, Baylor, Southeastern Louisiana, McNeese, and just about all of the SWAC schools have offered along with the hometown ULM Warhawks".
As for choosing a school Mr Hunter says that is all on his son but did throw in his two cents about ULM.
"I know he wants to major is pharmacy and ULM offers one of the best schools for that major. Of course watching him play on Saturday's would be good too".
It wasn't long after we hung with dad that Warhawk Nation caught up with Michael to get the scoop on what he is looking for in a school.
"The coaching staff has to be one that I am comfortable with. I also want to visit with some of the players that are already in the program and see how their experience has been and how I would fit in with them".
"Being able to get my education and graduate is my first priority followed by getting a chance to play".
While Michael says he doesn't have a clear cut favorite he does have three schools that are standing out right now.
"ULM, Baylor, and Mississippi State", said Hunter. I really like the coaching staff at all three schools".
"I want to have my list of schools trimmed down to 4 or 5 in the fall so that I can start taking my official visits".
As for the Warhawks, Michael left us with his thoughts on possibly playing for ULM.
"Coach Todd has been talking to me about staying close to home and getting a good education at ULM as well as getting a chance to possibly play early". "They got my boy Justin Ginyard out at Ouachita", joked Hunter. "I know if I did decide to stay close to home I would have a lot of family to look out for me".
With forty times of 4.6 and 4.4 flat at various camps, Michael is sure to turn even more heads as the summer goes on.
