Carson coach talks about latest Bulldog commit

Fresno State picked up the final piece of the recruiting class on Monday when it was announced by school officials that Carson (Calif.) Carson High School offensive lineman Matt Hunt had signed a letter of intent to play for the Bulldogs. On Tuesday morning, RedWaveReport.com caught up with Carson coach Michael Christensen to get his opinions on Hunt as a player.

"Matt is a very good prospect," Christensen said. "He combines size with great movement."

Hunt is what appears to be the final piece of a 23-recruit class for the Bulldogs and another three-star prospect, bringing the total to 10 for the year. He is 6-foot-2, 310 pounds and played both offense and defense for the Colts. His coach says that Fresno State had a huge advantage, because most other teams wanted Hunt to play defense.

"He did not want to play defense," Christensen said. "Washington State, ASU and Arizona all wanted him to play defense. In fact, he wouldn't even take a trip to those schools because he wanted to play on offense."

Hunt is rated the No. 48 offensive guard in the country by Rivals.com and the No. 87 overall prospect from the state of California. Coach Christensen had high praise for the two-way star from Compton.

"I think he will have a good chance to go in and play early," Christensen said. "He has a temper and a little bit of nasty-ness to him. Off the field he is quiet."
