Hunter is a team player RHP/SS out of Wisconsin in the class of 2026. Defensively, he showed the ability to make the routine play while being able to throw from multiple arm slots across the diamond. Offensively, he had a balanced set up with relaxed hands which helped him whip the barrel through the zone and work to all fields. On the mound, he worked with good tempo from a 3/4 arm slot. He threw a fastball which topped out at 66 mph and a breaking ball that ranged from 55-58 mph with an 11/5 action.
