Hunt played his collegiate football at the University of Oregon. He and Justin Herbert crossed paths with the Ducks for just one season when the former was a senior and the latter was a freshman. The 6’4, 305-pound Hunt became the first true freshman to start for the Ducks in 16 years during the 2013 campaign before going on to start 43 total games in his career.
Upon completing his final season for Oregon, Hunt was named the team’s recipient of the Ed Moshofsky Trophy, given to the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman while also taking home the Pancake Club Award, given to the offensive lineman who records the most pancakes during the season.
