After two weeks of spring practice, new Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen has this assessment of Cowboys running back Kendall Hunter.

Hunter’s better than he thought he was.

“Yeah,” Holgorsen said when asked if the Cowboys senior was even better than expected. “I didn’t know how good he was. We had faced him twice (when Holgorsen was at Houston) but I don’t watch the opposing teams offense. So, I knew of him by reputation. Then you watch him in space, he can stop and start, he’s as good as I’ve seen.”

All appearances point to Hunter being back to 100 percent healthy. Tales of Hunter leaving defenders grasping for air have been commonplace this spring.

“The old adage of making people miss in a phone booth, he can do that,” Holgorsen said. “I’ve seen it with my own eyes at practice.”
