Hunter White is one of the most dynamic players in class 1A and the Tindley star is ready for his time to shine. White has no offers yet but has visited a number of campuses including Eastern Illinois, IPFW, Maryville (MO.), and Western Illinois and will take a visit to Belmont in the upcoming months. Playing alongside high major recruit Eric Hunter certainly helps his recruiting and with a solid finish to this year and a strong summer White will have the offers coming in soon.
“They like my size and the way I can control the game. I am a 6’3 point guard so they like that. They like my passing and how I rebound really well for a guard. I can get to the basket and score and they really like that.”
This year Tindley will challenge for a 1A state championship and White will be a big part of that success. Already having grown four inches since the time he came into high school, teams have a hard time defending the 6’3 junior.
“I think it’s going good. I came out to a slow start but now I am doing a lot better. I have had three double doubles this year and just had a game of 24 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists. I am trying to get my stats up to those numbers.”
Running this past summer with G3 Rising Stars, White felt like his summer went really well. He played on a very solid team and played in front of a lot of coaches.
“I thought it went really well. I played in front of a lot of coaches and I didn’t have any looks before that so this summer really helped me out. I worked on my jumpshot because I feel that will take me to the next level.”
White’s recruiting will pick up this summer as a guard who can score as well as facilitate the ball at a high level. One more summer on the AAU circuit will bring the attention to White, as it should be.
“I want a school where I can make an impact immediately. I want to play the point guard role so I can control the game.”
