Christmas has turned into the day for numerous top prospects to release their top five lists.
Jaden Hunter, a 2017 4-star linebacker from Westlake High School (Atlanta), is the latest to reveal his top five schools. Hunter has Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida State and Clemson at the top, in no particular order.
Hunter, who is the son of the late Brice Hunter, a former star wide receiver for Georgia, has been vocal with his father’s alma mater hiring Kirby Smart. Here’s what he had to say about the hiring.
“He’s already like an uncle to me,” Hunter said of Smart. “Every time I see him he treats me like his own and we have a great time.”
Smart made a recruiting pitch to Hunter recently that consisted of only three words: “Come home, son.”
Hunter is rated as the nation’s No. 8 outside linebacker and the No. 16 overall prospect in Georgia for next year’s recruiting class.
