Four-star WR, son of Angels outfielder, commits to Notre Dame


We don’t cover recruiting a lot here on CFT unless the athlete is either 1) a four or five-star recruit or 2) the son of an athlete/celebrity. In the case of Prosper (TX) wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr., it’s both.

Hunter, the son of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, committed to Notre Dame following the Irish’s 13-6 “win” over Michigan Saturday night. Both Hunter and his father took to their respective Twitter accounts to announce the news.

Hunter Jr. is a four-star receiver and the 35th best at said position, according to He also had scholarship offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, among plenty others. With his verbal, non-binding commitment, Hunter becomes the 21st member of Notre Dame’s 2013 recruiting class.

    Is everyone going to complain that hunter is rich and shouldn’t recieve a scholarship. The kid earned it. Doesnt matter howuch is father makes.

    I’ll complain about a scholarship. He may have the stuff required to earn the scholarship, be it academic or athletic, but he sure as pie doesn’t meet the financial requirements.

    What financial requirements?

  6. olebubba says: Sep 24, 2012 8:14 AM

    WOW…there is no financial requirement for an athletic scholarship!

    I hope the kid enjoys his future Sun Bowl ring. That’s not an insult to ND, but the truth about the last 3 yrs for anyone that actually follows CFB.

    xlax1306 — I heard the young lady recanted her story, and no further legal actions were pursued.

    dmvtransplant — Sounds like a ND hater to me. If you can’t see the progress they have made on the field, you don’t know football.

    @ olebubba

    It’s easy to show what you define as “progress” when you’re playing teams that are less talented, like Navy and 3 bad B1G teams. If you can’t recognize that you don’t know anything about football. If they went 2-2 against BYU, USC, Oklahoma & Stanford I could say I see progress, but not against Pitt, Wake Forest or Boston College.

    My point was always if ND doesn’t go 10-2 at the end of the year they’ll end up in another 3rd bowl game like they keep going to since 2007. You know like the Sun Bowl and that doesn’t make me a hater, for telling the truth.

    I meant 3rd tier bowl game

    Not sure what you mean when you talk about financial requirements, what does that mean?

    Why is that even being brought up? I think once the future college athlete says “yes, I accept your offer,” then the financial requirement has been meet.

    That isn’t the same Hunter. It’s his brother.

    I agree with you. ND has woefully underperformed the past few years. The schedule this year is brutal though. You can say they’ve beat 3 bad B10 teams, but two were ranked in the top 20. Yeah, preseason rankings are stupid, but they’re there. ND was supposed to be a year or two away, so I am excited to see such a young team playing so well. If they manage to go 10-2 this year, they deserve a BCS bowl, considering their SOS.
