Hunter is officially a Golden Gopher!

Vitals:

Position: Wide Receiver
Hometown/School: Lafayette (LA), O. Comeaux

Rating: - 0.8386 Composite Score

How he fits:

The staff has also changed their approach to wide receiver recruiting, opting for taller wideouts in recent classes with either great raw athleticism or more natural receiving skills. They are clearly targeting a mix of receivers who can leap and make plays in traffic or break through arm tackles on flanker screens, the former of which is more Register's game. He can use his big catching radius to adjust to poorly thrown passes, shield defenders using his frame and make tough catches over multiple DBs.

Chances to play in 2015:

Very likely that Register and/or Still earns some playing time this fall because 1) depth is not great and 2) the staff wants as many tall playmakers at flanker on the field allowable.
