2019 Season Countdown: #56 Hunter Reynolds

2019 Season Countdown: #56 Hunter Reynolds


July 8, 2019

Name: Hunter Reynolds
Height:
6’0″
Weight:
191 lbs.
High school:
South Orange (NJ) Choate Rosemary Hall
Position:
Safety
Class:
Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number:
#27
Last year:
I ranked Reynolds #109 and said he would be a backup defensive back and special teamer (LINK).
TTB Rating:
N/A

Reynolds went into last year as a well regarded walk-on defensive back, and he got a little bit of playing time. He was also named Scout Team Defensive Player of the Year.

This spring I started to hear some more buzz about Reynolds. He was supposedly outpacing some of the scholarship guys, and he’s also expected to become a contributor on special teams. He doesn’t have a great resume so far – although obviously he stands out on the scout team – but I think his special teams coverage will at least be significant in 2019.

Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer

    That’s quite a run for safeties in the countdown. Makes sense to put prominent special-team contributors in this range.

      Yeah, they’re all here in the middle chunk, because they’re not super-important as individuals…but they are fairly important as a group.

      Tomorrow’s guy is not a safety.
