Just over two months after their recruiting explosion, Kansas has landed another prospect in Texarkana Texas receiver Tevailance Hunt. Hunt is the 7th player to join the 2018 Jayhawk’s class and the second receiver. The first receiver, Devonta Jason, is the highest ranked player in the Kansas class, and fans could see these two catching passes in Lawrence sooner rather later. Hunt is familiar with one future Kansas player already: 2017 signee Quan Hampton is a former, and now future, teammate.

Hunt is one of those guys who is only ranked where he is due to of a lack of exposure. He’s unrated on 247Sports, but a three-star on Rivals. If he participates in the summer camp circuit, he should shoot up the rankings. This kid is a gem, and if he starts getting noticed, Kansas may have to fight to keep the top dogs (or horses/cowboys) away. As of right now, Hunt holds ten offers, from Iowa State, Tulsa, Nevada, Louisiana Tech, and a few other G5 and FCS schools.
Hunt committed to Kansas while on a visit today, for the Jayhawk spring game. He had the following to say about his commitment, via JayhawkSlant:
“I made a decision and I told coach Beaty. He was fired up. We were all in the room meeting together.”
He also gave some insight as to what Kansas was pitching to him:
“They told me they liked how I get to the end zone and score touchdowns, they said I can be a difference-maker.”
Hunt’s skill on the field really can’t be understated. He’s got great athleticism for someone his size, and while his route running isn’t very refined yet, he’s got soft hands, and once he gets the ball, he’s extremely dangerous in the open field. He has all the makings of a stud receiver, Kansas just needs to develop his technique, and mold him into a Big 12 ready receiver. Well, after they hold on to his commitment until he signs on the line next February and faxes it in, of course.
