Jacobi Hunter was the District 17-5A MVP for CY Falls...as a defensive tackle. One of my favorite prospects in the class. #BearRaid2013— Marc Tausend (@ManBearCal) February 6, 2013
Hunter supposedly comes in at around 6-0/6-1, weighing in at about 285 pounds. You have to figure at some point he'll be ready to plug the interior and be part of the solution inside to holding opposing offenses down. Hunter was the defensive MVP of the CFISD District in the Houston area, a very competitive hotbed of Texas football.
Here are the rankings for Hunter. Rivals listed him as a two star talent. ESPN put him at three stars, ranked him as the 71st best defensive tackle and he was also listed as the 158th best recruit in Texas. 247Sports has him at three stars, ranks him the 68th best defensive tackle, and the 187th best recruit in Texas. Scout had him at two stars, 92nd best defensive tackle
Here is a video highlight reel of Hunter if you want to see him on tape. However, I figure you'd be more interested in this. I cannot confirm whether this is Jacobi or not, but if it is this makes him my favorite recruit of the last billion years.
Welcome to Cal, Jacobi! Go Bears!
