Headed into the spring/summer travel basketball season, Marcus Hunt felt he was poised for a big run. As it turns out, he was right.
The 6-foot-5 small forward from College Park (Ga.) North Clayton has been off to a torrid start this Spring.
Humble and soft spoken, Hunt credits much of his success to the level of comfort he feels with his Georgia Stars teammates.
"We are all from different locations so when we get together we have fun," Hunt told Rivals.com. "When we go into the hotel we are all in there laughing and clowning or whatever. It's a good influence on all of our play. We are so relaxed, it makes basketball fun."
What isn't fun -- for opposing defenders at least -- is trying to stop the powerful and athletic 215 pounder.
"My strengths are that I can shoot the ball well and I can create with my size," said Hunt. "Most other guards aren't as strong or big as me and that lets me take them in the post and off the dribble."
Already ranked #138 in the class of 2012, the three-star wing has gotten a host of attention from the likes of Alabama, Miami, Florida State, Nebraska, Missouri, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Georgia State, Memphis, South Carolina and others.
With a long list, he's in no rush and is interested to see how things shape up after he plays out the grassroots season.
"I'll probably cut it down after the summer," said Hunt. "I will sit down and discuss it with my family and we will find the right fit."
