Three-star PF Feron Hunt commits to TCU

Blue Zertuche

Feron Hunt, one of the top breakout performers from the July evaluation periods, committed to TCU on Sunday evening. A 6-foot-7 forward that can play three positions, Hunt brings excellent upside and two-way capabilities to Jamie Dixon’s program.

Running with the Urban DFW unit this summer, Hunt impressed with his instincts, motor, quick leaping skills and an evolving skillset. Capable of knocking down the perimeter and finishing at the basket, Hunt is a tremendous long-term addition for the Horned Frogs.

While he sits firmly within the 2018 Rivals150, Hunt remains more of an under-the-radar prospect, though the Horned Frogs pursued like he was a priority recruit this summer.

“TCU felt like home,” he said. “I love the staff there and the facilities and it's not that far from home.

“They do a great job of keeping the top players at home. They are always inviting us to campus to go to football games, run in their open gyms and stuff like that.”

TCU now boasts the largest 2018 recruiting class within the Big 12 and the best heading into the fall evaluation period. Hunt will join Rivals150 guard Kendric Davis, New Zealand big man Angus McWilliam and fellow in-state big man Russell Barlow, creating a four-man group that should bring plenty of value and upside to the Horned Frogs.
