Hawkins Excited about Recruiting Process
Hunter Hawkins profile "I am getting some letters from Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Tennessee," said Hunter. "I am planning on going to Mississippi State's junior day." Hunter made the move from Jackson Academy to Presbyterian Christian earlier in his career. Headed into his senior year, he is optimistic about his team's chances. "I think we have the chance to be better all around this year," said Hawkins. "We lost some good players, but we have some guys stepping up. "We will need a couple of guys step up and help out at wide receiver, but I think we can be better than we were last year." Hunter has spent some time playing receiver himself, but it looks like he is going to outgrow the position. "Tight end is where I feel like I fit in," said Hawkins. "I think that's the right spot for me. "I feel like it's going to be easier to put on the weight to play tight end rather than drop my 40 time to play receiver in college. "My goal is to get up to around 225 and drop my 40 time into the low 4.6s." While Hunter may not end up becoming a blocking tight end who essentially serves as an extra tackle, he feels that certain offensive schemes use the tight end in a way that utilizes his skills. "I really want to go to a winning program," said Hawkins. "The coaches are going to be real important and the type of offense they run. "I feel like the spread is a good fit for me. I really like the spread offense a lot."
