Get To Know Your Orange Man - #10, QB Terrel Hunt

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Which two QBs have the highest completion percentage in Syracuse history? If you answered Greg Paulus (67.7) and Terrel Hunt (61.2), please collect your prize.

Name: Terrel Hunt

Position: Quarterback

Year: Redshirt Junior

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 233

Hometown: Rosedale, N.Y.

High School: Christ the King

2013 Stats: Hunt passed for 1638 yards with 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions.  On the ground, he scrambled for 500 yards and seven touchdowns, making him the second leading rusher for Syracuse.  After taking over for Drew Allen, Hunt went 7-3 and won Texas Bowl MVP.

2014 Projections: That's the million dollar question, isn't it? Athlon recently projected the top ACC quarterbacks heading into 2014 season.  Hunt came in at No. 8.  But, four of the QBs ahead of him are first-year starters (at Clemson, Louisville, NC State and Pittsburgh) and another (Duke's Anthony Boone) racked up 13 interceptions last year. Between Hunt's high completion percentage and scrambling ability, he will be a top five ACC quarterback and NFL prospect heading into the 2016 Draft.

How'd He Get Here: Terrel's only other offer came from Boston College, but he got interest from several schools in the region. That includes Connecticut, Rutgers and Temple.

What'd Scout/Rivals Say: Three stars from both.

Money Quote: (After scoring 52 points on Tulane)

"At the moment, you feel on top of the world.  You're scoring with ease," Hunt said. "I just went over and told the defense, keep giving us the ball."

Links of Wonder: Nate Mink reveals some of the hardships Hunt has had to endure, which include the loss of both of his parents even before he committed to Syracuse.

Twitterfeed: Your fearless leader can be found here, @Rel_Hunt10.

Tweets of Wonder:

If you gave up on Syracuse after its 0-2 start, you are a disloyal idiot that doesn't honor your contract.

That one was a few days before Syracuse played Florida State. (Sigh)

Did you need me to explain the context for this one? I didn't think so.

What Does Shafer Think of Him: (From April) "We have a young man with Terrel Hunt at the quarterback position that understands how key it'll be that he takes full ownership of that offense and full responsibility for making sure those kids improve when no one is looking this summer. I've been pleased with his progress as a leader."

Interesting Nugget O'interest: Hunt is one of the active FBS leaders in game-winning drives in the fourth quarter, as the Post-Standard noted this week.  His three drives only trails Ohio State's Braxton Miller (6), Navy's Keenan Reynolds (5) and East Carolina's Shane Carden (4).
