Class of 2018 Pickerington Central and Ohio Nova forward Jerome Hunter is a four-star prospect, according to the 247Composite, and is one of the top prospects in the midwest.

Hunter held a scholarship offer from Dayton during Archie Miller’s tenure and has interest from the Hoosiers.

We’ve compiled more than 90 seconds of video from his play on the adidas Gauntlet circuit this spring:

    Moves well for a big man…and looks comfortable with his left. Not bad!

    Not flashy, but looks like yet another of CM’s favorite “type”: a player who plays tough, physical basketball inside, and who can shoot from outside. Several really good programs have offered him, including Xavier, Michigan, and West Virginia, all of whom have been to Elite 8’s (or better) recently, and two of whom play the rugged style of basketball CM has promised. Hopefully CM’s relationship with Mr. Hunter brings him to Bloomington.

    I think Hunter should be near the top of IU’s want list. He has a long frame that looks to be filling out and can add more weight. Watching him around the rim he looks comfortable; good positioning, instincts, and tracks the ball well. It seems that wings that develop inside out instead of outside in tend to be valued less at the high school level (rankings), but adjust and develop better in college because everyone on the floor is bigger and more physical.
    With all that said, I see a guy that can be a dynamic defender, an above average rebounder for his position, and a mismatch on the offensive end.

    Kid looks good!
