ESPN 300 OL Hunt has visits in mind
By Brandon P. Oliver
One of the more intriguing recruiting story lines in the west is that of ESPN 300 OL Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial). While he is still committed to the Cal Bears, the Under Armour All-American has a busy January ahead.
"I have the Under Armour Game on January 4th, then the following week is when things get really hectic," Hunt said. "I'm going to Michigan on the 12th, Oregon on the 18th and Cal on the 25th. I'm going to visit Ohio State at some point to but I need to figure that one out."
Will ESPN 300 OT Cameron Hunt remain committed to Cal?
Michigan, Nebraska and Oregon offered the 6-foot-4, 274-pound Hunt after Cal fired head coach Jeff Tedford. Urban Meyer made a trip to see Hunt at his school last week, and while no offer was extended, it appears that is just a matter of time.
"I'm working on scheduling a visit to Columbus, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to make it happen," Hunt said. "Coach Meyer is a championship coach and a great guy, so an offer from them would definitely be something to consider."
About Oregon, Hunt said he doesn't listen to the negative recruiting about the spread and the lack of physicality.
"They run the ball as much as anyone does, just in their own style out of the spread," Hunt said. "I mean they pound the ball every game and they have a lot of success."
Hunt mentioned the tradition and the style of play in the Big Ten that have him eying visits to Ann Arbor and Columbus.
"There's nothing like it. the traditions and the history of offensive linemen is amazing and it will be great to get out there and see it."
