QB Hunt makes his choice

Syracuse is on a roll recruiting of late and the Orange picked up another verbal commitment on Wednesday.

Terrell Hunt has flown under the radar thus far but we will be hearing a lot more about him in the months ahead as he begins his senior season at Middle Village (N.Y.) Christ the King.

The 6-foot-3, 186-pound prospect is a dual-threat quarterback in the truest sense of the term, as he put up almost identical rushing and passing yards last season for Christ the King.

Syracuse offered him a while ago but Hunt waited until after the school's most recent camp to make his decision.

"Yeah it's true," Hunt said of his commitment to the Orange, also adding that it is currently a solid verbal pledge.

"The camp went real well. I loved all the coaches. It just felt like I was at home. My mom loved it and it felt like a big family. The coaches get along. They love each other and they work well together."

Prior to making his decision Hunt had been hearing from Boston College, Rutgers, UConn, Temple and Villanova, so while he hadn't registered on the national recruiting radar several schools in the region were intrigued by his ability.
