Vincent Hunter said the choice was rather easy. "I wanted to stay in my own backyard," Hunter said.
And he did. Hunter, 6-10 and 193-pounds from Little Rock Fair High School in Little Rock, Arkansas gave a verbal commitment to the Razorbacks over the weekend. "I was also considering Cincinnati and Tennessee," Hunter said.
But Cincinnati had landed Robert Whaley and Tennessee grabbed Major Wingate. But Arkansas was always the school to beat. "I wanted to play in front of my family and friends," Hunter said. "My family is very happy and excited."
Hunter, who played at the National AAU tournament in Orlando, Florida last July, is a player who has an easy task for the next year. He needs to eat. "Yes," Hunter laughed. "I need to add weight and muscle. So I will be eating a lot and working in the weight room."
Hunter averaged 27 points and 10 rebounds per game last season. "I am going to work more on my perimeter game too," Hunter said.
