Impact:

Immediate Future:

Given the youth (and depth) Notre Dame has at receiver, Hunter Jr may not see much action right away in South Bend outside of possibly special teams. While he has decent size (listed at 6' to 6'1") for a wide receiver, he probably needs to add 20-25 lbs to be an every down receiver at the college level.

Long Term/Career:

Torii has some great qualities for a wide receiver-good acceleration, precise route running, willingness to go over the middle, and excellent hands. While he might not have elite level straight line speed, he does have the ability to stretch the defense vertically and potentially blow the top off of the coverage. His highlights remind me a bit of current Irish WR TJ Jones and will likely be utilized in a similar fashion during his college career.
