Eric Hunter is an elite student-athlete currently attending Tindley High School in Indianapolis. Hunter is one of the most sought after perimeter prospects in the country, currently ranked the #15 shooting guard and the #86 player overall in the class of 2018 per Scout. Eric is the prototype shooting guard that can score from the perimeter or at the rim with a nice jumpshot, good handle, and great court vision.  That versatile skillset has made Hunter a stockriser on the recruiting front with high major programs looking to land the talented sharpshooter.


EM: Can you tell us how things went this summer for Team Harris as a team and for you individually?

EH: As a team we grew tremendously, went out to some places and represented Indy and Gary. Individually, I got a lot better I believe. I made plays for my team and scored when I had to.

EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?

EH: Pretty much a very unselfish scorer. I like to get buckets but then I love to make my team better as well. I’m always in attack mode.

EM: How often do you work on your game?

EH: I work on my game every day. I’m looking to improve on my outside shot, getting deeper and finishing over the top in the half court setting.





EM: Can we talk a bit about your interests as a student, what is your favorite subject?

EH: My favorite subject would probably have to be philosophy right now.

EM: What do you plan to major in when attending college?

EH: I want to major in Business Finance.

EM: What are your interests off the court?

EH: I’m definitely a family and friends type of kid. Family over everything.





EM: Shifting a bit to recruiting, can you tell us which schools have offered?

EH: IUPUI, Kent State, Xavier, Ball State, Toledo, IPFW, Butler, Purdue and East Carolina

EM: Which schools show interest that haven’t yet offered?

EH: Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Tulsa, Nebraska

EM: Michigan seems to be a school that is really prioritizing you recently, can you tell us about your relationship with Michigan?

EH: Yeah I like Michigan a lot. My relationship with Coach Beilein has gotten close pretty fast over these past two weeks I would say. I’ve known coach Saddi Washington for about a year now. We’ve been in contact a lot since June.

EM: Any visits lined up in the near future?

EH: I’m headed to Nebraska this weekend and I will be headed up to Indiana in these next couple of weeks.

EM: What factors are important to you and your family when making your college decision?

EH: Definitely being able to play right away, and how good of a relationship we’ve had up to the point of my decision.





EM: Any personal goals on or off the court?

EH: On the court I would like to just keep getting better and making it to the next level.

EM: Last, if you could give the youth some advice on how to succeed either on or off the court, what would you say?

EH: I would tell them to find what you love and do everything in your power to perfect your craft.
