Early Life


Hunt was born on August 6, 1995, in Elyria, Ohio. He went to South High School in Willoughby, Ohio, where he played for the Rebels football team. He rushed for 2,519 yards and 39 touchdowns as a junior and 2,685 yards and 44 touchdowns as a senior. Hunt was rated by Rivals.com as a three-star recruit and committed to the University of Toledo to play college football.



As a freshman at Toledo in 2013, Hunt made an impact right away for the Rockets. He played in 12 games with three starts and rushed for 866 yards on 137 carries with six touchdowns. As a sophomore, he played in 10 games, missing three games due to injury. In the ten games he appeared in he rushed for 1,631 yards on 205 carries with 16 touchdowns. He was named to the All-MAC First-team and was the MVP of the 2015 GoDaddy Bowl victory over Arkansas State. In that bowl game, he rushed for 271 yards and five touchdowns, tying him with Barry Sanders’ NCAA record.



Hunt was suspended for the first two games of his junior year in 2015 due to a violation of team rules. He returned for the third game, but was injured during the game and missed the next two games. Overall, in the 2015 season, he finished with 973 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. In 2016, Hunt played all 13 games, leading the MAC in both rush attempts (262) and yards (1,475). His 4,945 career rushing yards broke a Toledo school record and made him third all-time in MAC conference history. In addition, he holds career school records for yards per rush (6.3, with a minimum of 100 rushes), and total yards from scrimmage (5,500).



Despite his record-breaking career at Toledo, Hunt dropped to the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs with the 86th overall pick and was the 6th running back selected. In Hunt’s NFL debut in the Chief’s first regular season game against the Patriots, he fumbled despite never doing so in college. After he brushed off his first snap jitters, Hunt didn’t look back for the rest of the season. He would finish that game with three touchdowns and 246 total yards, the most yards ever in an NFL debut. By the end of his rookie year, he had 1,327 rushing yards, 455 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns.




Kansas City Chiefs can’t re-sign Kareem Hunt. He has reportedly sought help for both alcohol issues and anger management.
