Auburn added some depth to its running back room on Friday with the signing of 2021 3-star running back Jarquez Hunter.
Out of Neshoba Central High School in Philadelphia, Mississippi, Hunter is listed at 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds. He is rated as the No. 36 running back in the 2021 class, according to 247Sports composite rankings.
In 2020, Hunter was Mississippi’s Class 5A Mr. Football after rushing for over 1,767 yards and scoring 22 TDs in his senior season.
Heading into the offseason, Auburn needed to add depth to its running back room after Mark-Antony Richards and D.J. Williams entered the transfer portal.
Hunter is the 18th signee in Auburn's 2021 recruiting class.
