In light of yesterday’s news that Vol freshmen wideout Justin Hunter was cleared by the NCAA, I’m reposting his amazing highlights video and the text that ran with it:
With the return of Volunteer senior wideouts Gerald Jones and Denarious Moore this year, top wide receiver recruit Da’Rick Rogers signed and early enrollee Matt Milton on campus, it’s easy to overlook wide receiver Justin Hunter – a one-time LSU signee.
Hunter’s signature was a signing day coup for Derek Dooley’s Tennessee Volunteers and one that shouldn’t be overshadowed by the signing of Rogers and Milton. Hunter, an Under Armour All-American, was a standout athlete in basketball and track, to go along with football, and will likely test his abilities for the Vol track team in the spring as well.
Hunter is in the same mold of tall, athletic wide receivers as Rogers and Milton, but a bit on the lighter side. Nonetheless, he makes up for that with his speed and leaping ability. The 6’4 receiver was categorized as this by Rivals: “His leaping ability is off the charts, and he is a long strider, so his speed is very deceptive. Hunter also has big, strong hands and knows how to catch the ball away from his body.”
