Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla High School head football coach Scott Kless talks about the potential and ability of rising senior outside linebacker Hunter Hurst.

Crawfordville (Fla.) Wakulla High School head football coach Scott Klees has two national recruits on his roster in sophomore’s Feleipe Franks, a quarterback, and Keith Gavin, a safety, that are sure to be headliners in the class of 2016. However, Klees thinks he has two rising seniors that may be sign scholarships as part of the class of 2015 including outside linebacker Hunter Hurst.

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.
