After long talks with my family, friends, and coaches I couldn't be more proud to announce my commitment #D1Bound pic.twitter.com/zY4WvLdcBX— cj hunt (@D1BOUND_CJ) May 15, 2016
The Falcons continue to pick up what appear to be strong and sought after verbal commits. This young man is CJ Hunt. He's a D-tackle from Avon, Indiana, which is west of Indy.
He has offers from Miami and Buffalo, but appears to be a high-upside player. He's 6'2" and 275 and that's entering his senior year. He is ranked as the #2 DT in Indiana, and while Indiana is not known as a football hotbed, we did get a pretty good DT from there (cough, cough, Chris Jones and in fact Jones is from Brownsburg which is about 10 miles north of Avon.)
The 24/7 composite is a 2-star. There's more here, as Hustle Belt had a chance to talk to him...interesting stuff, including a camp where he did well.
The other interesting note is that he compliments the Falcon coaching staff and says he loves "the vision Coach Jinks has for the program." He's not the first to say it, and you know that at this blog the jury is out on our new staff, but this seems to be something that Jinks is winning at....and it is a needed skill.
As a fan, I'd be interested in hearing what his vision is for the football program, for that matter.
Anyway, welcome to the Falcons, CJ!!
