Plyler on Hunter: "This is a clone. He looks like current Clemson linebacker Scotty Cooper in the face and his height, weight, and demeanor all remind you of Cooper. Hunter is just a football player. He is one of the most productive high school player I have ever seen. He played defensive end at Byrnes so he will have to make an adjustment and learn to play in space but his closing speed will help him with the transition. He will be a tremendous edge rusher. Hunter's instincts will give him a chance to play early."
