Scouting Report: (5/27/2020) As I write this scouting report, Javion Hunt is one of the most underrated players in the 2021 class. He has a natural running talent and an elusive style that you simply can’t coach. He has good speed, but he is more sudden and quick than top-end fast.
Javion is quick to see the cracks of daylight and pick and dart his way in and out of traffic. He also has an excellent feeling for setting up defenders in the second level. His stop-start ability to freeze defenders is at a premium level. He can make a defender miss quickly in a hole and bounce outside without gearing down much.
Javion is not a power back but can push the pile and break tackles with his quick twitched body movements and his ability to avoid direct hits. He consistently slips out of would-be tacklers and has enough wiggle to make people miss in space.
Overall, Javion is a strong, durable running back with speed to be a playmaker at the next level. I also like his tough mentality as he plays linebacker on defense.
