Class of 2018 Tindley guard Eric Hunter is a four-star prospect, according to the 247Composite, and a core Indiana junior all-star.

The 6-foot-3 guard led Tindley to a Class A state championship in March and is starring for Indiana PROS this year in the adidas Gauntlet silver division this spring and summer.

We’ve compiled more than two minutes of video from his play on the Gauntlet circuit this spring:

    decent athleticism, great lefty stroke, hard to tell about defense abilities in a 2 minute highlight video. Hey, if he grows 3 more inches, perhaps another Calbert C. in the making? Seriously, part of a state championship team, he knows about winning, whether its class 1 or 5. He looks like a 4 year player, go get him Archie! Personally, I prefer solid 4 year players to a one and done. Not impossible, but its very hard to win national championships with a one year player, unless they are introduced into the perfect situation and buy into winning and the team concept instead of worrying about getting their points.

    He’s my kind of player. Good shooter from the outside and looks for it.

    Sarasota I knew Calbert Chaney and I tell you, he is no Calbert Chaney… Courtsey of LB. Obviously, I’m just kidding but I felt like I had to say that.

    I watched Calbert from the sidelines at every one of his home games at Harrison HS in Evansville, and Eric Hunter is no Calbert … for real. 🙂

    His shot is really sweet, though maybe a little slow?? Maybe somebody who knows more about the mechanics can speak to that.

  • VOXAC30

    I was just goofing.

    I have met someone who went to school with Calbert and she said the entire Chaney family was the nicest people you could ever meet. The entire family supported the school and attended almost every event the school hosted.

    I was thinking the same thing about the slow shot. Looks smooth though.

  • John D Murphy

    I rewatched the video. He brings the ball down below his waist and then back up. That is what makes it so slow. Hopefully someone helps him fix that, he seems to have nice touch.

  • Maybe it’s just the style of coaching, but he has very little movement without the ball

  • TomJameson

    I got it Vox, no problem. My wife and I sold/took tickets at every home game at Harrison, so I really did get to watch him all the time. Calbert was fast .. had a very quick first step .. but he was so smooth his speed was deceptive.

    My wife’s Uncle (Jim Giovanetti) was the Athletic Director at the time, but he coached Calbert in some sport (I think track) his freshman year. They stayed friends for many years before Uncle Jim passed. He’s told me a thousand times how good of people Calbert and his entire family were. They were very fine folks, and gave back to the community.

    Calbert going to IU is why I became an IU basketball fan. Haven’t slowed down since. 🙂

    Hey Calbert was no Calbert before his senior year in high school, there is hope for Mr. Hunter!

  • TomJameson

    Hahaha … You are absolutely right Sarasota. Everybody has a right for a chance to develop into who they are. Let’s see what we all are saying at the end of his first season. 🙂

    Calbert was no Calbert DURING his senior year in high school. He had a broken leg and couldn’t play.
    I can’t remember who the assistant coach was who recruited him, (Felling or Waltman maybe, but I don’t recall,) but Knight took him upon the assistant’s recommendation alone. When he broke his leg and Knight couldn’t see him, he told the assistant, “you better be right.”

    When will IU actually offer him?
