Hunter Chooses Cajuns
"I didn't realize the staff had changed over from my first initial contact with the program," Hunter stated. "Coach Lovings wanted me to come in on a visit and he said UL was a great place to play college football. I had offers from East Carolina, Temple, Middle Tennessee, Troy and a few others, but I wanted to take a look at the Cajuns before I made my final decision."
Hunter has received recognition for his senior season, being named 2010 All County Offensive Lineman (St. John County), ESPN Scout Inc. #92 Guards and Ranked #9 Guard in Florida by Florida Preps. What enticed the Florida prep athlete from St. Augustine to commit to Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns?
"Once I came in on the visit, I had a chance to talk with Coach Hudspeth about the direction of the program," said Jaylen. "Having the opportunity to talk with the coaches, tour the campus, football facilities and hang out some of players, it just felt right."
Jaylen didn't give his commitment to Coach Hudspeth before leaving Lafayette, he wanted a little time to think about it.
"Coached asked me if I was ready to commit to the Cajuns before I left," Hunter stated. "I told coach I needed a little time to think about it, so he said go home and take some time to think things over. I thought about and after talking to my mom, UL was the best place for me to play college football. My mom will be moving to Houston in a couple of years and it's only a few hours drive for he to drive in to watch me play."
Jaylen Hunter has qualified on the sliding scale, scoring a 970 on the SAT and currently holding a 2.6 GPA in his core.
