Michael Hunter is the cousin of Louisiana Tech target Chuck Hunter and will join his cousin's West Monroe Rebels as his father takes over as the head boys basketball coach at West Monroe.
With written offers from Louisiana-Monroe and Southeastern Louisiana and verbal offers from Baylor and Duke, Hunter's recruiting is really starting to heat up. Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech, and Louisiana-Lafayette have begun recruiting the tall cornerback heavily lately. After speaking to Chuck Hunter, Michael's cousin, he said that TCU was also interested in them both. Michael said he mostly hears from them through Chuck. So, to echo a previous article, Mississippi State, Louisiana Tech, and TCU vie for both Chuck and Michael Hunter's services.
Coach Rob Likens is Hunter's recruited from Louisiana Tech. "I love coach Likens to be honest with you." If Louisiana Tech were to offer they would be one of Hunter's front runners.
Michael said it was kind of important to play with Chuck, but said they would make the best decision for them personally first and foremost.
Michael is a shooting guard for his dad's team at West Monroe.
Michael says he strength as a corner is man, but is learning more about zone while being at West Monroe.
Hunter will not make a decision until during the season so he can see how many offers he gets.
