4/5/16
- KC Hunt stands at 6-feet-1 and plays SS and pitches. A top performer at last fall’s Underclass Showcase Hunt possesses plus bat speed for a freshman, and utilizes a leg kick. Against Indian Hills, Hunt barreled an Alex Havlicek (Virginia Tech) slider for a single to left field, then lined out to straight away center.

9/20/15 --
K.C. Hunt is already 6-foot, 150 pounds and is only a 2019 graduate. He's a left handed hitter, right-handed thrower. He hits from a tall, open stance and utilizes a leg kick. He generates bat speed and his feel for the barrel is far advanced for a player his age. He occasionally loses balance and stability, spinning off to the pull side, but this will be a non-issue as he gets stronger. Defensively, he showcases good glove skills. He has long strides and is light on his feet, which means solid range. He plays a little too upright at times and will be better off bending more at the knees. K.C. may have been one of the two or three most projectable arms at the event. He pitches with easy, fluid mechanics and plus-plus arm speed from a 3/4 arm slot. His velocity was 78-81 miles-per-hour and he had some arm side bite to his fastball. His slider was tilted and two-plane at 68-72 MPH.
