UGA Recruiting Daily Thread


Derick “Rambo” Hunter is a four-star defensive end from Fort Myers, Florida. He’s 6-4 276 pounds and ranks as the No. 14 SDE and No. 27 2019 Florida prospect in the latest 247Sports Composite Rankings. Hunter currently has 40 offers with the latest coming from Clemson on March 24. He recently went to Florida on April 7 and Miami on March 31. Hunter participated at Florida’s Junior Day on February 24. Georgia offered back on February 14, and since then, Hunter’s been high on the Bulldogs. After talking with him, he’s still high on Georgia and Bulldog fans should be excited about this one.

Lucas Rogers and I spoke with Hunter back on February 23 and decided to catch back up with him for an update on his recruitment.
