Torii Hunter, Jr. seems to have inherited his father’s Gold Glove-caliber hands along with his name.
The wide receiver out of Prosper (Texas) High School can make just about any catch, whether he’s stuck in traffic or wide open in the end zone. Once he gets the ball in his hands he’s adept at finding the gaps and outrunning his opponents, but he doesn’t shy away from contact – although primarily an offensive player, his high school highlights include a bone-jarring tackle.
Hunter committed to Notre Dame in September, but it might be a while before Irish fans get to see him in action. He suffered a gruesome broken leg a month ago during one-on-one drills before the Army All-American bowl and still has five to seven months of recovery before he can play again.
