Player Overview

Quarterback Ryan Nassib had a lock on the Syracuse starting quarterback job from 2010-12 and left the Orange with school records for career passing yards and completions. But after his departure, Scott Shafer's squad has struggled to find consistency at quarterback.

Hunt took over the top spot on the depth chart the past two seasons, but has been a more impressive runner than passer and missed most of the 2014 season with a broken leg. He returns healthy for his senior year at Syracuse and one final season to prove he has next level skills.

Strengths Weaknesses

Hunt has more rushing touchdowns (13) and interceptions (12) than passing scores (11) over his career and with only 60 percent completions at Syracuse, his downfield accuracy has not been a strength. The consistency as a passer just hasn't been there, but with his size/athleticism profile, Hunt could be tabbed as a developmental option if he shows improvements in 2015.

09/09/2015 - Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt had surgery on his injured Achilles tendon on Tuesday, and coach Scott Shafer said the school would petition the NCAA for a sixth year of eligibility for the senior captain. "We've already started the process," Shafer said Tuesday. "It'll just be a wait and see with the NCAA, so the ball will be in their court, really. I'm not sure how quickly they'll act on it." Hunt, who missed the last seven games of 2014 with a broken calf bone in his left leg, suffered a tear in his right Achilles last Friday night in the Orange's 47-0 victory over Rhode Island in the opener. He played one series before leaving the game midway through the first quarter after rolling to his left and stepping awkwardly as he began to dive forward. He got up on his right foot but then dropped to the turf and walked to the locker room on crutches.

"Terrel is a very strong young man. He's overcome a lot in his life," Shafer said. "It's just a horrible situation for such a great young man. I think he's a strong enough individual that he'll find his way through it. "More than anything, I'm going to miss his presence, his spirit. But that'll be back in good time. I expect him to come back and help us out as a leader and a captain." With Hunt out for the season, freshman Eric Dungey is now the No. 1 quarterback after completing 10 of 14 passes for 114 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions against Rhode Island. - AP Sports
