Arkansas State has a new commitment that fills one of the Red Wolves remaining scholarships for the 2013 recruiting class.
AStateNation.com spoke to Money Hunter Wednesday evening, only a few minutes after he got off the phone with ASU New Head Football Coach Bryan Harsin.
“I just got off the phone with Coach Harsin, he offered me a full scholarship and I told him tonight I accept his offer,” Hunter said. “I spoke to Coach Baker last night and told him I thought that I wanted to be a Red Wolf, he told me that he would run it by the head coach.”
Hunter, the son of pro baseball player Torii Hunter, from Prosper Texas, is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete plans on playing either free safety or safety for the Red Wolves.
“They are telling me either safety or free safety or a hybrid position that they have,” Hunter said. “I have been tweeting with Coach Baker for a couple of weeks. They liked my film and decided to offer me a scholarship.”
Hunter had offers from SMU, West Virginia and Utah before signing day, apparently the talented athlete waited too long before making a final decision.
“When I got ready to pick a school, those schools filled up at my position,” Hunter said. “I’m very excited and thankful for the offer from Arkansas State. It feels great to konw that someone wants you to play on their team. It feels amazing. I get to continue my football career, a lot of high school athletes don’t get that opportunity.”
Money has two brothers that play college football, Torey Jr who plays for Notre Dame and Darius who plays at Southeastern Louisiana.
“I will be going up to Jonesboro as soon as school is out,” Hunter said. “I can’t wait.”
