Four-star WR, son of Angels outfielder, commits to Notre Dame

We don’t cover recruiting a lot here on CFT unless the athlete is either 1) a four or five-star recruit or 2) the son of an athlete/celebrity. In the case of Prosper (TX) wide receiver Torii Hunter Jr., it’s both.

Hunter, the son of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, committed to Notre Dame following the Irish’s 13-6 “win” over Michigan Saturday night. Both Hunter and his father took to their respective Twitter accounts to announce the news.

Congrats to my son @thunterjr for his commitment to Notre Dame to play football and baseball. #proudpapa
