Quintin Hunter

Orange (VA) star Quintin Hunter is one of Virginia’s most versatile recruits, having starred at defensive back, wide receiver and, for the past two years, quarterback for the Hornets varsity football squad. The 6-2, 190-pound senior earned first-team AP all-state honors in 2008 for his play as a defensive back, but he projects as a quarterback/wide receiver for the Cavaliers.

A two-sport star, Hunter has helped the Orange varsity basketball squad to a 7-5 record so far this season. He scored 32 points in a loss to Courtland (which features top Duke recruit Josh Hairston ) last week.
