Sorry for the delay on the post. I'm off work today and frankly I was overwhelmed with other responsibilities you simply wouldn't understand. (I forgot)

#50 Khalil Hunter

Class: Junior

Ht/Wt: 6-4/300

Position: Offensive Line

Hometown: Orlando, FL

Twitter: @Ball4Chelsea

Thoughts: Khalil comes to the Cards via Eastern Arizona College and has two years of eligibility left. Hunter is a big boy who has the skill to play big boy football right away. Hunter was getting lots of love in the offseason from multiple SEC and ACC schools but Mizzou and Louisville jumped on him early. Hunter committed after his visit to Louisville and said the opportunity to play immediately was a big factor in his decision. Hunter could play guard or tackle while at Louisville but my guess is he ends up sliding out to right guard after Epps moves to the left side. Klenakis had a big challenge last year on the recruiting trail trying to replace three lineman going pro as well as a transfer he didn’t expect and he did pretty well in my opinion. Hunter and Mahoni can have some instant impact up front and Chandler Jones, Geron Christian, Kevin Austin, and Kenny Thomas should all be solid pieces on the line moving forward. Klenakis has some skill as a recruiter so it was just a matter of time before he started pulling in some talent and his abilty to teach proper technique has helped him put over 15 players in the NFL. Everyone breathe easy. Coach K will get the O-line rolling soon enough.

Sweet Tweet:

I’m a pretty passive guy but I’ve let some things go long enough. I can’t hold it in anymore…

People that say “the bomb dot com”. Stop.

People that say “jelly” instead of jealous. Stop.

People who aren’t in high school that frequently use emojis in conversation. Stop.

People that orally say “righty tighty, lefty loosy” when using a screwdriver. Stop.

People who toss trash out of their car on the freeway. Stop.

People who don't wave at me after I let you merge. Stop.

People who didn’t realize today is Day 50 and that we are HALFWAY THROUGH THE COUNTDOWN! Wake Up!

It’s all downhill from here.
