Prep basketball star Sammy Hunter received his first high major offer from an elite Division I programme.
The 6’9″ 215 pound forward in the class of 2019 was offered by the Arkansas Razorbacks.
The Razorbacks finished 23-12 in out of the SEC last season and were eliminated in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament as the No. 8 seed to the No. 10 seeded Butler Bulldogs 79-62. It was their third NCAA Tournament trip in the last four seasons.
Hunter’s summer recruitment continues to accelerate following his performances against elite Division I competition at the Bahamas Basketball Federation’s Summer of Thunder.
Hunter finished with 19 points and eight rebounds against Notre Dame and followed with 18 points and five rebounds against North Carolina.
Hunter previously fielded Division I offers from the Chicago State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Santa Clara, San Francisco and Pacific.
He recently made his senior men’s national team debut in July at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia.
Hunter was also a member of the 2016 CBC U16 Championship team when he averaged 12 points and 5.5 rebounds per game and the 2017 Centrobasket U17 Championship team when he averaged 14.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
A former student at St.John’s College, Hunter is currently enrolled at British Columbia Christian Prep in Canada.
