Hunter Plays the Waiting Game
Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson three-star wide receiver Jerrard Hunter is a chiseled 6-2.5 and a 175-pounds and runs in the low 4.5's. He holds a cumulative 3.3 GPA and has scored a 1290 on the SAT. You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer young man who lives for school and football, so why is it that Hunter still holds no offers as we approach the end of September? Hunter tore up the competition at every camp and combine that he attended this spring and summer, but that still was not enough. Most schools have told him that they wanted to see some senior film. H.D. Woodson has played three games thus far. Hunter has played in two of them. He missed the second game of the season with a hamstring injury. In those two games he has amassed 11 catches for 212 yards and two touchdowns. "I have had schools like Illinois, North Carolina, Rutgers, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh offer me verbally," Hunter said. "They said they wanted to see senior film and they would put it in writing. "It gets kinda frustrating," Hunter continued. "I felt that I dominated at the camps and combines, but they want to see it on the field. I just go to school everyday and do my best and then when I am not doing school work, I am trying to become a better football player." Hunter has had his share of visitors swinging by the halls of H.D. Woodson high school including Illinois (Mike Locksley), North Carolina (Tommy Thigpen), Rutgers (Gary Emanuel), Virginia Tech (Kevin Sherman), Pittsburgh (Bryan Bossard) and Maryland (James Franklin). "They all came by to get some film of our first few games," Hunter said. "They all have the film now, so I expect to hear from them all very soon. I have been invited to a bunch of games, but we travel all the time to play, so I am usually playing on Saturdays or traveling home."
