Indiana Basketball forward Jerome Hunter has a shot to make the NBA.
Jerome Hunter is a very talented player who has had a very unfortunate start to his college career. After fighting through a leg injury for what should have been his freshman season, Hunter played his first minutes on a college court last year.
Hunter incrementally progressed throughout the year but spent most of his time shaking off the rust accumulated from not playing competitive basketball for over a year. Coming into Bloomington, Hunter was seen as a ready-to-play prospect. A top-50 player with a great body and great skills, the kid from Pickerington, Ohio was supposed to make an immediate impact right out of the gates.
His injury prevented that narrative from happening (and it would have happened). Instead, Hunter is lagging behind where he planned to be. However, hope is far from lost. Hunter has three more years to improve, and a recent spot has opened up at his position in the starting lineup. He couldn’t ask for a better opportunity.
That being said, a lot needs to improve for Hunter to make the NBA. Let’s take a look at what needs to happen.
