is now up to eight offers: Duke
, New Mexico
, North Texas
, Oregon State
, Texas State
, and Stephen F. Austin. Bigger programs such as TCU
and Boise State
are also showing interest and have been in contact with the 5'11" 170lb athlete.
Earlier this summer he posted a 4.3 40 time and that created even more of a recruiting buzz. Some schools are recruiting Hutchison as a running back, while others at wide receiver. Texas State likes him in the slot position and he could also see some carries from the RB spot. Bralon was just on campus last Wednesday and gave his visit really high marks.
"It went pretty good, I really like it. I liked the campus and the school. Academically I like what they offer, they have what I want to major in. Athletically, they have a good football program and they're saying I could get early playing time. It's only about 1 hour and 45 minutes away and I'm kind of leaning to being closer towards to home. Closer to home, to be close to my family," said Hutchison.
He also visited Houston later on in the week, on Friday, and has camped with Baylor and Texas over the summer.
Hutchison would like to play RB at the next level, but is open to playing wide out or even defense if he has too.
Like most seniors this time of year, with the month of August in his cross hairs, Hutchison is getting ready to make a huge decision and Texas State is one of the top 3 schools he plans on choosing from.
"It's winding down, getting ready to hopefully make a decision before the start of the school season. I kind of like the Texas Schools. My top 3 would be Texas State, Houston and North Texas."
Bralon reassured our staff that he's set on having that decision soon. He wants to focus on his senior year and also have a decision in case something happens and he gets hurt.
Secondary Coach Jason Washington is leading the charge for Hutchison.
