Position: RB
Class:  4Sr
Conference: Big 12
HT: 5-7.5
WT: 199

Biography: "Three-year starter awarded all-American and all-Conference honors after his senior and sophomore campaigns. Rushing totals last season included 271/1548/16 with 20/101 receiving. Struggled with injuries throughout his entire junior season, playing in only eight games and finishing with 382 yards rushing and one score. Sophomore totals included 241/1555/16 on the ground to lead the Big 12 in rushing."

Positives: "Elusive and creative ball carrier with a variety of skill. Runs with a compact style, quick footed and sets up defenders then makes defenders miss. Easily bounces around tackles, will pick and choose his way on the inside, and squirms through the small openings of the defense. Displays terrific running vision, instincts and follows blocks everywhere on the field. Possesses the speed and agility to beat defenders around the corner, can turn it on a single step, and shows a burst of speed. Patiently waits for blocks to develop and does an outstanding job following them. Natural receiver out of the backfield and effectively adjusts to errant throws."

Negatives: Lacks strength in his running and easily brought down by the first defender. Limited by a lack of growth potential.

Analysis: Hunter was a complete back on the college level and produced any time he handled the ball. He projects as a third-down back/rotational player at the next level and should be very effective in that role.

Projection: 2nd
