2019 four-star defensive end Derick Hunter named his top ten schools on Saturday and the Tennessee Vols made the cut.

Hunter’s top ten includes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Maryland, Miami, Mississippi State, Oregon, Penn State and South Carolina, in addition to Tennessee.

Hunter is a 6’6″/281 lb defensive end from Fort Myers, FL (Dunbar). He’s rated by 247Sports as the No. 27 player in the state of Florida and the No. 15 strong-side defensive end in the nation.

So far there have been eight 247Sports Crystal Ball picks cast for Hunter. 62 percent of those picks have Miami landing the talented defensive end. But as we all know, it’s very early in the process for 2019 recruits. A lot can (and will) change over the next year.

I’d expect Hunter to be a huge priority for Jeremy Pruitt and his staff during the next recruiting cycle. Hunter is a big body that plays very physical at the line of scrimmage, which is exactly what Pruitt is looking for in his defensive linemen.
