Tenn. RB Talks about His Committment

Gabriel Hunter, 5-11, 190 pound running back from Memphis-Kingsbury (Tenn.) made his commitment Monday. Find out where he is going and what he thinks about the recruiting process from this step forward.

Gabriel Hunter said of his commitment to Ole Miss, "I have a lot of offers but they were the school that was recruiting me the hardest. There are other schools, but they weren't recruiting me like Ole Miss has been. I went with them because they have shown me the most love."

He explained the timing of his decision, "I was going to make it Saturday at the camp but I didn't get a chance to go to the camp."

Coach Nutt and his coaching staff have really stood out in the process. Hunter commented, "I like the coaches a lot. I think they have some good coaches. I think Houston Nutt is a good coach and I like him."

The athleticism and versatility Hunter offers allows the Rebels staff to possibly look at him to play several spots. He explained, "They are going to try me at different positions. I don't have a problem with that and I don't really mind redshirting."

Another SEC School that seemed to show a lot of interest in Hunter and cooled off was Alabama. He said, "I was really interested in Alabama, but they said they were going to offer me but they didn't send the paper."

Hunter is solid on his commitment but wants to take all of his visits. He commented, "I still want to go on my visits and take all of my visits. Right now I told Texas Tech I was going to visit them, so I'm going to visit them."

Hunter said of the Ole Miss coaching staff's reaction to his commitment, "They seemed pretty excited, Coach Nix, the running backs coach he said they have wanted me for a while and they think I'm a good player."

Just like many teams in Tennessee this week is the beginning of two a day practices and fall camp. Hunter commented on his team and the preseason, "I feel pretty good. We go to camp on Thursday and I'm feeling good. I think we are going to be alright and I think we should win more games than we won last year."
