08/26/2023 - National Showcase - Salt Lake City, UT This is our third viewing of Hunter since we first met him in August 2022. He continues to make improvements across the board every time we see him. His overall body strength is evident currently ranking 3rd nationwide in the 2025 class in the standing broad jump coming in at 9'9" and 13th in the country in the 2025 class for grip strength with 291 total pounds squeezed (140 pounds left hand and 151 pounds right hand). Arm strength increased 9mph now up to 81mph with pop times as low as 2.07 seconds. He shows flexibility, sticks pitches with a firm wrist and deadens balls in the dirt properly. At the plate, exit velocities were as high as 85mph and he showed a rhythm during his round. Hunter has time and the athleticism to make his college baseball dream a reality.
