2019 Bishop Moore guard Hunter Cattoor is fresh off a superb senior campaign.
He furthered his progressions this past weekend at the UCF team camp by showing well both Saturday and Sunday (Story: Day 1 UCF Team Camp Notes). He was perhaps the most poised player in attendance and it showed when he was on the floor.
Last season, Cattoor and the Hornets finished 23-5, losing to Leesburg in the Class 6A-District 13 finals and then to Rockledge in the Class 6A region quarterfinals.
Cattoor labeled his junior year a great one for him and his school.
“We accomplished a lot and earned respect from teams all over,” Cattoor told Prep Hoops. “I would say I saw my confidence grow in just being the leader of the group, taking accountability to make sure we are all on the same page and have the same goal in mind and just getting better every day.”
The 6’3″, 190-pounder has played for Team MOAM the past two years. He’s with them again this summer and says he absolutely loves playing for the program.
“I’ve grown up playing with the guys since I was in 3rd and 4th grade so it’s been great playing with them at a young age and then getting back together the last two years,” he said.
Right now, Cattoor holds four offers from Texas State, Furman, Lehigh and Elon. He’s also generated interest from UCF, FAU, FIU, Lipscomb, Troy, Arkansas Little Rock, Citadel, Rice and Davidson.
He says Furman is the school that messages him on a daily basis.
“Coaches have said they love that I’m an all-around player who can dribble, pass and shoot. Also, that I have a high basketball IQ,” Cattoor said.
In terms of his biggest strengths, he pointed to his 3-point shooting, ability to get to the basket and finish and his lockdown defense. He’s aiming to be a three level scorer (finish at the hoop, pull up jumper and 3-pointer).
Cattoor is an underrated athlete who can dunk the ball and get up off his feet when running downhill. He’s good with the ball in or out of his hands, constantly moving around and creating areas to score or pass.
