Hunter Jr., the son of Los Angeles Angels outfielder and Pine Bluff native Torii Hunter, has been recruited in football as a wide receiver and cornerback prospect, and has received offers from Arkansas, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.
The visit to Fayetteville this weekend had more of a baseball focus, however.
The Prosper, Texas native said he arrived in Fayetteville around 6 p.m. on Saturday, but the visit really took place on Sunday, during Arkansas' 7-4 victory.
"We got to Baum (Stadium) around 11 to watch a little batting practice, talk to the coaches and walk around and look at the facilities," Hunter said.
"In January I was here to see all of the facilities and they're great – some of the best in the nation. Plus they're working on a new baseball facility, so that should be pretty nice, too," Hunter said.
"I really wanted to see the atmosphere of the game, though. I've been up here before, but this is the first time I really get to see the atmosphere of a baseball game."
Hunter has a .424 batting average and has hit six home runs so far this season for the Prosper baseball team. The Eagles are 15-2 this season after making the second round of the playoffs a year ago.
"Last year we had a young team and we overachieved from what people thought we would do," Hunter said. "They didn't think we were good enough to make the playoffs, but we ended up beating the number one team in the state and making the second round.
"This year, we're experienced and we're hitting, playing good defense and ready to make another run."
On the football side, Hunter said he did not get a chance to meet with Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino during his visit, but plans to make an official visit after baseball season and would like to get a chance to meet with him then.
Hunter racked up 701 yards and 12 touchdowns during his junior season with the Eagles' football team. He said he would like to play both football and baseball at the collegiate level, but knows it could be difficult to do.
"I want to play both sports, but if I really think about it, it might be too hectic," Hunter said. "I'd still like to try it and see how it goes for a year."
Hunter, whose mom went to the University of Arkansas and dad signed with the Razorbacks baseball team before being drafted out of high school, said he was born in Pine Bluff and he has a familiarity with the area.
"Growing up, I had Arkansas everything," he said. "I had Arkansas pillows, clothes, pajamas, everything."
