Hunt was a four-year starter for the Ragin' Cajuns after a strong high school career at Burkeville, Texas. He started all 13 games at left guard as a redshirt freshman, and then split time between left guard (nine starts) and left tackle (two starts) the following season. Hunt moved to right tackle for all 14 games in 2018, and Sun Belt coaches considered his play good enough to vote him second-team all-conference. He only started the first seven games of his senior season due to a groin injury but still was named first-team All-SBC for his play at right tackle.

Cody Ford
Overview
Like Cody Ford in last year's draft, Hunt is a plus athlete with a big man's frame who could be considered at guard or tackle. Inconsistent footwork and pad level are the primary culprits when he fails to win the rep, but there aren't any physical limitations that should prevent him from improving in both areas. Pass protection traits are present but getting the skill level up to par is going to take time. He's a little raw but has the necessary talent to become a solid future starter at right tackle.
Strengths
  • Rare combination of bulk and athleticism
  • Carries weight on well-proportioned frame easily
  • Offers two-position experience at both guard and tackle
  • Ease of movement out of his stance and into it
  • Plus lateral scoot to make blocks a gap away
  • Looks to make a point with aggressive first contact
  • Works to sustain blocks on the second level and even beyond
  • Physical tools to become plus run blocker in all schemes
  • Possesses slide quickness to square half-man rushers
  • Able to recover and redirect rush past the edge
  • Hands are like clamps once they take root into defender's frame
Weaknesses
  • Loses hand technique and placement when trying to mash down-blocks
  • Footwork is a little raw and undisciplined
  • Pass sets can turn into gallops with heels close together
  • Will need to incorporate more flat-footed punch for anchor
  • Gets caught leaning with nose over toes at times
  • Hands land high and ride up and off the frame
  • Can bend but allows pad level to creep up tall during the rep
  • Instinctive reactions to unexpected moves is below average
