Hunt plans to visit Michigan on Jan. 11 after he returns home from the Under Armour All-America Game, Oregon on Jan. 18 and Cal on Jan. 25.

He’s also considering Ohio State, though he has yet to set a visit. It has been a long road for Hunt, who drew little recruiting interest before a breakout camp circuit last spring.

ESPN 300 OL Hunt will be busy

Until a couple of weeks ago, the Oregon Ducks had been looking at three offensive linemen in order to round out their class with one or two more players at that position. Then two new recruits came into the picture and received offers almost immediately.

Both of the new offers were big, as one led to a commitment and the other has one of the top players in the West seriously considering the Ducks.

California commit and Under Armour All-American OL Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial) recently began to explore other options after Cal had a coaching change. Hunt remains committed to the Bears but is giving a good look to three other programs. Nebraska, Michigan and Oregon all offered the ESPN 300 prospect within days of Jeff Tedford being let go. Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer also stopped by the week before Hunt and his Centennial squad took on Concord (Calif.) De La Salle in the state championship game.

'Tis the season of giving, but there are still a few recruiting gifts that Michigan fans would like to receive this year. As we wind down the 2013 recruiting season, WolverineNation looks at five gifts Michigan fans would like to receive on signing day.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comDerrick Green would be a great holiday present for Michigan fans.
1. The gift of running - Michigan already has two running backs committed, but the addition of Derrick Green (Richmond, Va./Hermitage) would give the Wolverines some outstanding options going forward. Green is the No. 5 running back in the country, so it would be a huge boost to Michigan's run game. Green also happens to be good friends with offensive line commit David Dawson (Detroit/Cass Tech), who has been recruiting Green to Michigan once again. All Green has said as far as when he will make a decision is "soon," which could mean anything.

2. Interceptions - Safety Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) is still on the board, and as of now is expected to make his announcement at the Under Armour All America game on Jan. 5. He plans on enrolling early, and is likely deciding between Michigan, USC and Vanderbilt. All three schools seem to have him interested, and have something a little different to offer. If Michigan lands the talented defensive back he could be used in a variety of ways within defensive coordinator Greg Mattison's defense.

Centennial (Corona, Calif.) OT Cameron Hunt committed to Cal in July. But since the Golden Bears fired coach Jeff Tedford, Hunt has scheduled three visits elsewhere. Brandon Oliver talks with the nation's No. 13 offensive tackle at the Cal State Game.
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."

2013 recruiting timeline: OL

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- As of the beginning of the 2012 football season, it seemed as though the Wolverines had pretty much secured the best offensive line classes they could’ve hoped for in the 2012 and 2013 classes. But when No. 1 offensive guard David Dawson (Detroit/Cass Tech) and Michigan parted ways, a few questions emerged. But even without Dawson, the O-line commits in Brady Hoke’s first two full classes still seem very strong.

Since that point the Michigan coaching staff has extended offers, re-extended offers and reached out to players who hadn’t been on the radar for months. To break down the search, here’s a timeline of O-line recruiting for this class.

Michigan had parted ways with offensive line commit David Dawson (Detroit/Cass Tech) a short time ago for planning a visit to Florida. The two parties spoke tonight, however, and Michigan is once again recruiting the No. 1 guard in the country.

"I spoke to Coach [Brady] Hoke tonight and he said they are re-offering me," Dawson said. "We had a heart to heart, and I don't want to put everything out there but I was dealing with some things and I might have jumped the gun a little bit.

"We talked about everything and he said that if I want to be there they have a place for me."

Conley decommits; what's next?

Michigan has lost the commitment of defensive back Gareon Conley (Massillon, Ohio/Washington), the No. 9 ranked cornerback prospect in the 2013 class. With 22 commitments for Michigan, there are roughly three spots open in this class.

The Wolverines have a few main targets out there, and a few prospects who could find themselves with a Michigan offer depending on how things play out.

Running back Derrick Green (Richmond, Va./Hermitage) is still a main target and has an in-home visit with Michigan running backs coach Fred Jackson and defensive line coach Jerry Montgomery on Tuesday night. Green has seen two schools in his top list, Auburn and Tennessee, fire their head coaches, which can't hurt Michigan. The coaching staff has also reached out to former target and current USC commit Ty Isaac (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Catholic), who also could be getting an in-home visit from the coaching staff.

Michigan to visit ESPN 300 OT Hunt

When Jeff Tedford was let go from his position as head coach at California, offensive tackle Cameron Hunt (Corona, Calif./Centennial) didn't rush into any decision, but did say he was happy to have plenty of options available to him. The nation's No. 220 recruit could be close to adding yet another possibility to his long list of scholarship offers as Michigan offensive line coach Darrell Funk will make an in-home visit Tuesday.

Mason KelleyESPN 300 OT Cameron Hunt, a Cal commitment, is seeing a lot of attention this week.
"As of right now, he just wants to meet with me, visit with me and see what type of person I am," Hunt said. "He said he likes a lot of my film and said I don't need to send him any more -- especially playing against Jojo (ESPN 300 DE Joe Mathis) last week, I did pretty well against him. It kind of showed him that I could play at a major DI level and compete early."

A scholarship offer from Michigan would likely give Hunt plenty to think about as he continues through the recruiting process, but the Wolverines aren't the only program pushing hard to steal the 6-foot-4, 267-pound tackle away from Cal.
