Hunter is an athletic and talented 2022 2-way prospect. At SS, Hunter is on time with his prep step and presents a low/early glove.

Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate, Hunter starts in a tall stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and hits off a firm front side. He needs to continue to keep a quiet head and attack the inside part of the ball. On the bump, Hunter gathers over the rubber, separates on time, and extends thru his delivery. He works downhill, but needs to continue to develop a secondary pitch, such as a changeup, to work off the fastball.
