Scouting Report on Tyler Hunter

by Barry Every - 06/03/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Ball SkillsBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Has the look of a speedy outside linebacker. His build is similar to USC signee Dion Bailey.
Needs Improvement: Is he fully recovered from his back injury, which limited his play in 2009? Hunter is usually lined up near the line of scrimmage, and there are some doubts about his coverage skills. Would like to see him work on his backpedal and coming out of his breaks.
Most Impressive: He is as pretty as they come physically, and plays downhill. Hunter is not afraid of contact, and could possibly grow into a linebacker with the skills to run with almost any back at the next level.
Conclusion: If he is fully recovered, then expect him to be a steal for the school that signs him. He plays against a very high level of competition, and the transition to college ball should be easier for him than most prospects.
