22 Days to Purdue Football: DaWan Hunte

With kickoff to the 2013 season rapidly approaching, day 22 brings us to freshman DaWan Hunte.

DaWan Hunte - Fr.

Miami, FL (Miami Central)

5'10", 180 pounds

Defensive Back

2013 Projection: Redshirt at DB

Hunte comes to West Lafayette from a recently familiar territory, Miami. Hunte played at Miami Central, the same high school that former Hurricane Willis McGahee starred at, and also a national powerhouse. In addition to an offer from Purdue, Hunte also held offers from Marshall, NC State, and Syracuse, securing a 3-star rating from Rivals and 2-stars from Scout.

Hunte was initially a member of the NC State Wolfpack after committing on May 10, but he later decommitted in December after Tom O'Brien was let go. Hunte figures to be a likely redshirt candidate with the Boilers current depth at corner, but hopes are high he can continue Purdue's recent streak of successful Florida defensive backs.
