Confirming reports that leaked out earlier this week, Cameron Hunt today announced his commitment to Oregon.
Hunt was rumored to favor Oregon for some time, and then officially de-committed from Cal earlier this week. Shortly thereafter Rivals reported that Hunt would sign his letter of intent with Oregon and play for the Ducks.
Hunt -- who paved the way for two 1,000-yard running backs at Centennial -- holds 19 offers, was named to the 2013 CalHiSports all-state football first team last month, and was honored as the Los Angeles Times Lineman of the Year in December.
At 6'5, 275 lbs Hunt is an Under-Armor All-American and four star recruit by most recruiting services. Bud Elliott of SBNation recruiting has praised Hunt's footwork and technique in the past, though suggested that Hunt could stand to get stronger. Hunt is agile and athletic and should do well in Oregon's up-tempo offense as he can get down the field quickly.
On the heels of the Rivals Report, our friends at CaliforniaGoldenBlogs had this to say:
There is no denying that having Hunt migrate over to the Ducks is a major blow. Many recruiting services had him as the best player in Cal's 2013 class, and the Bears will likely tumble a spot or two simply for losing him.
Hunt helps round out a very strong and much needed offensive line class, which also includes 4* tackle Evan Voeller and 3* linemen Jake Pisarcik, Elijah George, and Doug Brenner. He is Oregon's 18th verbal commitment in the 2013 class.
