Tennessee defensive end James Pearce Jr., Ohio State cornerback Caleb Downs and running back Quinshon Judkins, Georgia safety Malaki Starks and guard Tate Ratledge, and Michigan defensive tackle Mason Graham were among the other players rated 95 overall.

But Hunter being the top-rated wide receiver sparked discussion on social media.

In his first season with the Buffaloes, Hunter had 57 catches for 721 yards and five touchdowns. He also had 30 tackles and three interceptions. He was an All-American last season.
