Hunter was named the MVP at Nike's The Opening over the summer after flashing his elite route running skills, great hands and elusiveness at the wide receiver position in front of scouts.

Hunter becomes Notre Dame's 21st pledge for the recruiting class of 2013, where he joins three other players at the same position.
