Friday afternoon former Georgia LB Jaden Hunter announced his decision to transfer to the Hill via his Twitter account.
Credit this grab to WKU Head Coach Tyson Helton’s ties at Tennessee (Hunter was heavily recruited by Tennessee’s head recruiter). In the class of 2017 Hunter was listed as a 4 star prospect by 247 sports and the #137 overall prospect in the class (This would be WKU’s best ever).
With the addition of Hunter, the linebacker position received a much needed boost. Look for WKU’s defense to be a strong suit next season with several key returners in the secondary and up front.
I don’t think this is the last news of the summer for WKU football. Sources have said to be on a lookout for Head Coach Tyson Helton to make an addition to his uptempo offense for next season.
