Travis Hunter evaluation at Under Armour All-America Game
All American Practice
+ He’s ranked as an athlete, but Jackson State signee Travis Hunter (No. 2) primarily worked as a corner at Under Armour. Hunter took things relatively easy over the course of the week and is still nursing an ankle injury from his senior season. Hunter views himself as a cornerback first and certainly has the ability to be a great player there. With that said, I’ve been of the belief his highest upside is at receiver. What we saw at Under Armour confirmed that thought. Hunter has elite and perhaps transcendent ball skills. Along with A.J. Green, Hunter’s ball skills are the best I’ve seen from a high school prospect. That ability is maximized at receiver while any perceived questions about him as a prospect (slight build, lack of verified long speed) are minimized relative to corner. Make no mistake, Hunter was among the better corners at Under Armour, but he was not flawless. TCU signee Jordan Hudson got behind him twice during the game and he got caught flat-footed a few times in practice.
