New Indiana coach Archie Miller and assistant Tom Ostrom made a swing through the Indianapolis area on Monday.

One of the players the IU coaches visited with is 2018 four-star guard Eric Hunter of Indianapolis Tindley.

Nebraska coach Tim Miles and assistant Michael Lewis are scheduled to see Hunter Tuesday, and Notre Dame coach Mike Brey is scheduled to see Hunter on Wednesday.

Hunter has not yet received a scholarship offer from IU.

“It was a very good meeting, very informative,” Eric Hunter Sr. told Peegs.com after the meeting with Miller and Ostrom. “He ha a powerpoint video presentation, showed his style of play and that kind of stuff, and he spoke about IU in general. It was really, really good.

“He said he hasn’t seen him play in person yet. He’s going by the recommendation of (scouts). He said (some of them) were really high on Eric, and he was interested because of that.

“He said he plans to watch him over the next couple of weeks.”

Hunter is a 6-foot-3 guard with a long wingspan. He currently is ranked No. 85 in the Scout.com class of 2018 rankings.

“He liked his size,” Hunter Sr. said. “Of course like everyone he says Eric will have to put on a little weight, but that’s no big deal. He said he’s hearing how well he shoots the ball, so that’s definitely good.

“It was a really good meeting, an in-person meeting. There wasn’t much face time with the former staff, not much at all.”

With AAU in full swing and two live evaluation periods the next two weekends plus events throughout much of May, Hunter, like many players, doesn’t have any immediately scheduled campus visits.

“Coach Miller did mention he’d like to get us down on campus, so we might be able to make time for that,” Hunter Sr. said.

Hunter has scholarship offers from Butler, Creighton, Minnesota, Nebraska, Purdue, Xavier and others.

Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Maryland and Temple are among others schools who have watched Hunter at various points.

“Nebraska wants to continue the relationship,” Hunter Sr. said. “We’ve been out there. They’ve been here several times. I think they want to get face to face with us, and we value that.”

Hunter plays for the Indiana PROs AAU program. He led Tindley to the 2017 class 1A state title as a junior, averaging more than 25 points per game.
