Westlake junior Jaden Hunter has had a busy month. He’s spent the majority of a week at Florida State, missed UGA’s Dawg Night and also visited LSU during July.
Those travels caused the UGA legacy to re-think his recruiting leaderboard this summer. Alabama’s down. Way down.
The Crimson Tide fell four spots to fifth in his pecking order. UGA stays third in Hunter’s mind. He listed the Bulldogs at No. 2 on his Top 10 he released via his Twitter account yesterday, but the school his parents played for are now behind Florida State and LSU instead of Alabama and LSU.
The 6-foot-3, 212-pounder rates as a 4-star recruit and as the nation’s No. 122 prospect for the Class of 2017 per the 247sports composite. He’s also regarded as the eighth-best outside linebacker for his signing class.
