Four-star 2012 guard Marcus Hunt landed an offer from Louisville last month during the July evaluation period, and the 6'6, 210-pound College Park, Ga., native made his first post-July visit to Rick Pitino's program last Friday.

"I enjoyed it," Hunt said of his visit to UofL. "I learned about the coaching staff and Coach Pitino, saw how they got up and down the floor during practice, and they showed me around campus. The facilities are great. They get treated like top pro athletes. I talked to the players and I felt comfortable."

A powerfully built wing prospect for the Georgia Stars, Hunt owns deep range on his jump shot and has the strength to finish around the rim. Louisville assistant Wyking Jones has been building a relationship and the Cardinals like Hunt's versatility.

"They like my size and the way I get up and down the court," Hunt said. "They like that I can shoot, do multiple things to help the team and play defense. I can play multiple positions. I think I'd fit in real good with their system if I end up going there."

Hunt is still going through the recruiting process after visiting Louisville and plans to visit other programs before making a college decision. Hunt hopes to sign during early national signing period this fall.

"I don't know which ones yet, me and my parents have to talk about it," said Hunt. "(I'm considering) Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Memphis, and Georgia."

As he sets out on his campus visits, Hunt knows what he's looking for in a school.

"It's going to come down to a great coaching staff that is going to develop me into a better player," Hunt said. "I also want to get a good education, stuff of that nature."

How did Louisville stack up? "Pretty great," Hunt said.
