A third baseman and righthanded pitcher, Hungate has a higher ceiling as a position player with a powerful bat. He has present strength with a 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame and scouts believe he will develop above-average or plus power down the road. A Florida State commit, Hungate has average bat speed and some moving parts to his swing, including an arm bar and a long stride, with a long follow through and finish after contact. A below-average runner, there is some concern that Hungate might eventually have to move from third base to first base, in which case there becomes more pressure on his hit tool. On the mound, Hungate has been up to 92 mph, but teams seem to be more interested in him as a hitter.
