Hunter is the real deal, and he’s just the beginning
It’s July which means football is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to take a closer look at Oklahoma State’s roster, so over the next week I will be taking a in-depth, position-by-position look at the Cowboys heading into the 2010 football season. Yesterday was quarterbacks, today is running backs:
#24 Kendall Hunter, 5-8, 197, Senior
Analysis: Hunter is one of the most overlooked players in America and his name is rarely mentioned for postseason honors including All-American and All-Big 12. But Pokes fans shouldn’t worry about Kendall Hunter. If he stays healthy, he’ll make people look silly for overlooking him this summer much like he makes defenders look silly one-on-one in the open field.
Impact: Starter and the face of OSU’s offense, 20-plus touches per game.
#31 Jeremy Smith, 5-10, 203, Redshirt freshman
Analysis: Smith burst on the scene by rushing for 160 yards in his record-setting debut against Grambling State last season. But a shoulder injury the following week resulted in a medical redshirt season. Smith returns this year looking to make a mark. With his excellent feet and good vision so he should be a solid option behind Hunter.
Impact: Co-No. 2 running back, 4-8 touches per game.
#32 Travis Miller, 5-9, 192, Redshirt sophomore
Analysis: Miller has a similar skill set to Kendall Hunter. He has quickness, speed and elusiveness but he wasn’t as physical and tough as the coaches would have liked last season. This spring, Miller showed improvement in that area and earned high praise from Dana Holgorsen as a legit option. Expect Miller to have a impact this fall.
