01/13/2012 - 2012 Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament
Hunter improved in a few areas of his game during his time at the All-America tournament. He improved his top velocity on the mound, now topping out at 88 mph. His FB shows slight action and is thrown for strikes. His slider is an excellent pitch and has a sharp/powerful break. Defensively, he has active feet and makes consistently accurate throws to his target. Defensive abilities will improve if he can become more aggressive to the ball and get better pre-pitch rhythm. Offensively, he has a level swing, he makes consistent contact and he creates extension thru contact. He can create more power if he can use more of his lower 1/2.

Hunter is a lanky shortstop and also spends some time on the mound. Hunter has a very quick and accurate arm with a clean exchange, but needs to work on getting into a better fielding position with a more consistent pre-pitch routine. At the plate, Hunter tracks the ball well enabling him to make consistent solid contact with his level swing and shows some ability for power in the gaps. To improve his hitting skills, Hunter needs to get his front foot down early so he can maintain his balance throughout his swing. On the mound, Hunter is quick to the plate and works with a good tempo. His skills on the mound should continue to develop as he learns to control his delivery and keep his body weight back over the rubber before making his move to the plate. Hunter projects more as a second baseman at the next level and shows the ability to play the game at a fast pace
