Indiana forward, Jerome Hunter, has been out all season after suffering a lower leg injury in practice during the offseason.

Hunter, a former four star recruit ranked 59 overall in the 247 composite rankings, was projected to be a big contributor for the Hoosiers this season.

The 2018 Mr. Ohio basketball finalist had surgery on his lower leg in November and has yet to play this season, but a recent instagram post from Hunter shows he may be getting back to full health.

It is still unknown whether or not Hunter will see any action this season, but it is a good sight to see him back on the court.

Recently, Archie Miller said that Jerome Hunter would remain out indefinitely, raising questions if Hunter will end up redshirting this season.

The Pickerington North graduate, Hunter was Indiana’s second-highest rated recruit in their 2018 recruiting class.

At 6-foot-7, Hunter is a versatile forward who can play and guard three different positions. With a good traditional post game, he has developed more of a three point shot and ball handling ability on the wing.

Before the season started, Hunter was awarded Indiana’s “gold-standard” jersey in practice for displaying “prodigious shot-making ability”, according to coach Miller.

Hunter picked the Hoosiers over Michigan, Ohio State and others.
