Torii Hunter Jr. had an eventful hour or so on Thursday.
The wide receiver from Prosper High School (Prosper, Texas) was returning to class after talking with the coaching staff at Arizona about his most recent offer when his coach, Kent Scott, texted him to inform him that the Wildcats were no longer his most recent offer. Notre Dame was.
“It was kind of like bang, bang,” laughed Hunter Jr. “I started cheesing in class and my teacher asked me why I was smiling. She was excited too.”
The Notre Dame offer was special for Hunter, who already had offers from Arkansas, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and West Virginia heading into the day.
