Recently picking up commitments from the Longview cornerback tandem of Hunter and Pierce, we wanted to grab a quick scouting report from Lobo head coach John King...

King on Pierce: "He's a big, tall corner that has good speed. He's physical, a good tackler, can play the ball in the air well, real well. Those tall, physical corners are hard to find. And he's one of those. They don't come around very often."

King on Hunter: "Great track speed, 21-second 200-meter time. He's a big, physical kid, probably 10 pounds heavier and an inch taller than Pierce -- just a physical kid who will come and hit you. And he's not done growing. He has a build that will mature. He may stay at corner, but he could grow into a safety, or linebacker.
