Signing Day Capsule: Mufi Hunt

Michigan State won't get the services of this commit for two years, but picked him up on signing day

Mufi Hunt – Salt Lake City (Utah) Taylorsville

Height, weight: 6-foot-6, 215 pounds

Commitment Date: February 4, 2015

The Skinny

Hunt is one of the more unique recruits in the class – and in recent memory for Michigan State. It is not often a Big Ten school lands a player that will be headed on a two-year Mormon mission before enrolling, but that is the case with Hunt.

He committed to MSU on Wednesday and signed his NLI. It will be some time before he gets to be on the field, though.

When he arrives, it will be with an impressive maturity gained from his time wherever his mission takes him – an asset, surely. Two years away from home in a structured environment will allow plenty of time to grow.

His game needs more strength to it, but he has a lot of athleticism and quickness that he brings to the defensive end spot. He is another tall, rangy defensive end that plays basketball – seemingly the new mold for Michigan State.
