🚨 INTERVIEW 🚨 With Michigan DB Hunter Reynolds
In 2017 as a freshman, Reynolds did not see game action; however, he was named the scout team special teams’ player of the week for his work in preparation for Air Force. His sophomore year, Reynolds made his Michigan debut against Nebraska, along with tallying achievements like scout team player of the year (defense) and scout team player of the week in preparation for the Michigan State game—all of which earned him his first varsity letter. As a junior, Reynolds made an appearance in twelve games, two on defense, and totaled five tackles and one tackle for loss. His career highs came against Maryland in 2019, as he recorded three tackles and a tackle for loss. Reynolds will be a senior in 2020.
Q: What was the recruitment process like for you? What convinced you that Michigan was the right fit for you?
A: I did not have any offers going into my senior year (I was only 16), so halfway through I decided to do a postgraduate year. I went into that year as a wide receiver, but I started playing corner too. That is what schools eventually started looking at me for. I still did not have any other scholarships, so I came to Michigan as a preferred walk on.
Q: What is your favorite place to play outside of the Big House?
A: Penn State because of the song that they play when they are coming out of the tunnel and after big plays, and the crowd is jumping the whole game.
Q: What is the environment like as a player when you play in the Big House?
A: It is surreal; you never really understand how big it is until you’re on the field looking up at everyone.
Q: What was your first time playing in Michigan stadium like for you?
A: It was the Cincinnati game three years ago, and I remember everyone having a lot of energy.
Q: If you could relive any one moment so far as a Michigan football player, what would it be?
A: My first snap at Michigan, because I proved everyone who said I would never play at Michigan wrong. (PT. 2 in comments‼️)
