Ruskin FL, In this small city, the friday night lights shine bright, however, thats not the only thing shining in Ruskin,FL RB Prospect Tino Hunt 5'11" 200 (Lennard High School) has made a name for himself there, rushing for over 1600 yds and 16 Tds as a junior. Now with his senior year approaching he's determined to leave his mark on the Longhorn program. Hunt believes he can be that complete back that D1's are looking for. He prides himself on his ability to break tackles and make the extra yards after contact but, he is looking to become more of a home run threat.
Right now with a verbal offer from #Bowling Green University and strong interest from several other suitors he's looking to add to his offer list. Proving he can amass he stats total from a year ago he knows it wont be easy feat. Hunt will merely lean on a combination of a strong Oline and his ability to become more of a home run threat.
Things to know: Hunt earned a few accolades last year with a player of the week honor coming in week 9. He also won offensive player of the year. Hunt when asked; who did he mimic his game after he mentioned his favorite back Saquon Barkely (NY Giants) but he admitted that his running style was more of the great AP (Adrian Peterson Washington Redskins). He also admits hes not at their status yet but soon one day he hopes he can compete at that level. One thing about hunt is hes a team guy. Everything is about the team and making them better.
As summer approaches Hunt plans to train hard working on lowering his forty time and looking to attend some camps that would hopefully boost his ranking as he believes hes one of the top backs in the state. As of now hes ranked no. 26 in the St FL in total yards gained.(MaxPreps)
Stats: 233 car 1607 rushing yds 160.7 ypg 16 TDs
Insider Take: Hunt is a downhill back with a dose of "come get some" behind him. North south runner that's a one cut and go back from what i see on film. I believe he can play at the next level and with another solid yr become a lower FBS, FCS type prospect.
