Alabama preferred walk-on tight end Richard Hunt is going to go viral over the next 20 hours or so thanks to the beautiful head of hair that he showed off in his Alabama announcement photo that will cause people to think they’re seeing Andy Samburg in a Bama uniform. Nope, that’s really Richard Hunt, a tight end out of Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis where the 6-7, 232 pounder played basketball and football.

“Extremely excited to say that I am continuing my athletic and academic career at the University of Alabama,” Hunt said on Twitter Sunday night. He was also offered a preferred walk-on at Arkansas, but it’s hard to turn down that Alabama offer so that’s where Hunt’s headed.

Hunt had 9 receptions, 142 yards and 4 touchdown catches during his senior season.
