Urban DFW wing Feron Hunt is seeing his stock rise after some standout performances during the Spring and Summer. Hit the jump to find out which powerhouse programs are now showing interest in the athletic wing and which schools will get visits in the near future.
Four months ago Feron Hunt was a relative unknown on the national scene. Fast forward to August and the Louisiana native is now firmly on the radar of high-major programs and considered one of the better prospects in the country.
Having viewed Feron live on multiple occassions, he sticks out as a wing/forward hybrid with the athleticism and skill to play the wing while having the size and motor to defend the paint and alter shots at the rim.
“My biggest strengths are getting to the rack and finishing in transition, also my athleticism and rebounding ability.”
Hunt had some eye-popping outings during the July period where his talent, and more importantly his upside were very noticeable.
“I felt like I played good, but there is always room for improvement,” Feron told Endless Motor.
With the uptick in production and prototype size/length, college programs have taken a liking to Hunt’s game. Wichita State, Tulsa and Houston among others have extended official offers since the Spring.
It would appear that Feron is in the mix to go high-major in short order, as Kansas, Arkansas, TCU and Texas A&M are all showing interest as well.
Hunt already has two visits set up with additional visits coming in the near future.
“I’m visiting TCU on August 19th and I have an official visit set to Tulsa from August 25th-27th and will schedule visits to other schools as well.”
Feron is in the home-stretch of his recruitment and is looking to make a decision within the next month or so.
“I’m going to commit by mid-September and no later and do the early signing in November.”
With AAU over and his recruitment coming to a close, Hunt’s mindset is turning to the High School season.
“My goal moving forward is to win State,” Feron told Endless Motor.
Hunt is one of the more intriguing prospects in the 2018 class. He has the physical tools to be an impact 2-way wing at the next level with his skillset rapidly improving. While not currently in the EM Top 150 for 2018, his July play has him in strong consideration to make his debut when our rankings are updated within the next week or so.
