Irish offer still good for Torii Hunter Jr. 

January, 6, 2013
Notre Dame commit Torii Hunter Jr. (Prosper, Texas/Prosper) didn’t watch much of Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Not because he didn’t want to. While lying in a San Antonio hospital bed, Hunter admitted to dozing off during the first quarter, and when he woke up, doctors had cleared him to return to Prosper.

Sunday is the start of what Hunter believes will be a long-but-productive rehabilitation process. Hunter sustained a broken left femur during a non-contact, 1-on-1 drill at U.S. Army All-American Bowl practice Tuesday. The ESPN 150 wide receiver had successful surgery the following day and is expected to miss no less than six months of action.

“It takes 12 weeks to completely heal, but there will be a full six months to rehab and be back running,” Hunter said. “I'm trying to come back before.”
