Football: San Diego State rescinds offer to Hunter

January 25, 2009 |  9:17 pm


San Diego State made -- and then rescinded -- a scholarship offer to L.A. Jordan receiver-defensive back Eric Hunter recently, drawing the ire of Bulldogs Coach Elijah Asante.

Asante said Hunter was OK with the reversal because he had already committed to New Mexico State, but Asante might have second thoughts about welcoming the Aztecs' coaching staff back to campus.

"It wasn't a good move by them because now it tells me not to trust them," Asante said. "For you to come down and offer a kid and renege the next day, I'm looking at them like I'm not" dealing with them anymore.
