A 6-foot-3, 177-pound righthander and outfielder, Hunt is a legitimate two-way prospect and would be able to play on both sides of the ball if he reaches campus at Mississippi State. Hunt is extremely athletic and is also a talented basketball player who likely could have played at some collegiate level on the court as well if his focus wasn’t on the baseball field. On the mound Hunt has a loose, clean arm action and good feel for throwing strikes with a fastball that’s been up into the low-90s, a curveball and a changeup. He also throws a knuckleball, and while scouts have seen plenty that are mostly just gimmick pitches in high school, Hunt’s could be a legitimate offering in the future. As a hitter, Hunt has some feel for barreling the baseball and some sneaky pop, but is likely a corner outfielder down the line. Hunt’s brother, Shooter, was a first round pick as a pitcher in 2008.
