2014 Outlook: Excellent secondary player in pass coverage who returns for his redshirt junior season. Only two years removed from tying for the team lead with three interceptions in 2012, joining current Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes. Has earned time as a safety and nickel back during his career. Gives Florida State a veteran voice in the secondary to go along with a high football IQ. Has worked feverishly to rehabilitate ahead of schedule from last year’s season-ending injury.

2013: Missed final 11 games of the season with a neck injury...started the first three games of the year at safety...posted a new career high with five tackles in the season opener against Pitt...returned an interception 27 yards and had two pass break-ups against Nevada.

2012: Nickel back who played in all 14 games and made three starts...starts came against Boston College, Duke and Florida...tied with All-ACC first team defensive back Xavier Rhodes for the team lead with three interceptions...tied for eighth in the ACC in interceptions...had a monster game in FSU’s road win on a Thursday night at Virginia Tech recording a career high four tackles and two interceptions, including one that sealed the win for FSU...first Seminole to pick off two passes in a game since Greg Reid did it versus Virginia in 2010...Hunter’s first career interception came against Miami in another big Seminole ACC road win...returned his interception against the Canes for 37 yards, the second longest interception return by a Seminole on the year...second on the team behind Rhodes for tackles by a cornerback despite making just three starts...also returned eight punts on the season and averaged 15.8 yards per return...posted a career-high five punt returns for 122 yards against Duke which included a 75-yard return for a touchdown, which was the first of his career and tied for the ninth longest at FSU.

2011: Played in 11 games primarily on special teams as a true freshman...tallied three tackles, one each against ULM, Charleston Southern and Boston College.

PERSONAL: Was fourth member of the Lowndes County High School football team to commit to Florida State in two-year span, joining Greg Reid, Gerald Demps and Telvin Smith...ranked No. 116 in the ESPNU 150 and the No. 10 safety...rated the No. 33 safety by and the No. 43 safety by a three-star rating from 247Sports...No. 39 on the SuperPrep Georgia 83...No. 34 on the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Top 50 Recruits...his father, Brice Hunter, was a receiver and a University of Georgia legend before his untimely death in 2004...the elder Hunter was the Bulldogs’ top receiver in the early 1990s and still ranks among the school’s career leaders in several offensive categories...he played for highly-respected Lowndes County coach Randy McPherson...Hunter has run a 4.50 40 and boasts a 4.33 shuttle time...he chose the Seminoles over offers from Florida, Louisville, Mississippi State and Tennessee...born March 24, 1993.
