2016 Intro: Irshad Hunte

Irshad Hunte is a 2016 center from SoCal that has continued to emerge as a good post prospect.

One of the biggest sleepers at center on the West Coast in 2016 is 6-foot-7, 200-pound San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) Saddleback Valley Christian's Irshad Hunte.

A post with a good frame with long arms, Hunte is raw on offense but plays very hard, blocks shots, works hard as a rebounder and uses his athleticism to make plays in transition.

A native of Canada, Hunte has only been in the states for a few years but has seen his game improve.

"My shot has gotten a lot better," he said. "I’m working on improving my handle. I can finish around the basket and face up and shoot."

Improving on the perimeter is one Hunte's goals.

"I’m working on my handling and I need to get a lot stronger too," he said.

Hunte said his coaches are handling his recruitment and wasn't aware of any offers.
