Torii Hunter‘s son, Torii Hunter Jr., is one of the top high school football players in the country and the wide receiver from Prosper, Texas has committed to play for Notre Dame.

Hunter Jr. made the announcement last night after attending Notre Dame’s win over Michigan on Saturday, picking the Fighting Irish over Arizona State and Nebraska.

ESPN rates Hunter as the country’s No. 8 wide receiver and the No. 50 overall player and Keith Arnold of Inside the Irish notes that he also plans to play baseball for Notre Dame.

    Thank you Great Moments in Cross-promotion. I feel like I’m watching Fox baseball playoffs as they pan the crowd for the cast of Glee.

    Any idea what happened to the allegations of sexual misconduct against him? Were they unfounded?

      I was just about to ask the same question? Probably settled out of court and the person dropped the charges.

      That incident involved Torii’s other son, Darius. Not Torii Jr.

    I personally hope he succeeds in both sports, I want to see another big dual sport athlete like Jackson or Sanders

      …and Danny Ainge, of course.

    That’s odd. A kid that didn’t want his dad to play for the Rangers because people would make fun of him, is going to a school that everyone in college football makes fun of for not being relevant in decades.
