As a junior Hurst racked up 40 tackles in ten games including 30 solo stops and two sacks. Coach Klees believes Hurst has the potential to be a Division II scholarship football player at the very least.
"Hunter is an outside linebacker for us. He is 6-foot-1 and 220-pounds. His forty-time will hurt him a little, he runs around a 5.0-forty. I would rank him as Division II type kid," said Coach Klees of Hurst as a college football prospect.
Coach Klees also says that while Hurst may not have all the measurable college recruiters are looking for he is a productive player who plays faster than his forty-time.
"Hunter plays faster that what his forty-time says he is. I think he can play at a Division II school like Valdosta State or North Alabama," finished Coach Klees.
