2013 Intro: Hunter Myers

Hunter Myers, a junior forward from Nevada, is a very talented young prospect and an outstanding student as well...

Hunter Myers, 6-5 JR SF Minden (Nev.) Douglas, is one of the more promising small forwards in the west for 2013. In addition to being a good basketball player, Myers is also an outstanding student with a GPA of 4.5.

I spoke with Myers recently and asked him about the schools that he's considering.

"My top schools right now would probably be Nevada, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, MIT and Gonzaga," said Myers. "They're all pretty equal and I wouldn't be able to make a choice right now."

I asked Myers what he's looking for in a school.

"I'm looking for a good basketball program as well as a good education," said Myers. "I want to be an engineer, so I'm looking for a good engineering program.

I asked Myers if location or early playing time would be factors in his decision.

"The location doesn't really matter much right now," said Myers. "I'm looking at schools in the east and the west. And playing time isn't much of a factor. I just want a strong program with a coach that's been there for a while. "

Myers has already taken unofficial visits to Nevada, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, MIT and USC. He said he has a couple other schools in mind that he'd like to visit.

"I'd like to get to Utah and possibly Gonzaga," said Myers.

Myers said he doesn't see himself making a decision any time soon.

"I don't see myself deciding this year," said Myers. "It won't be any time soon. I want to be sure I'm making the right decision."
