D'Angelo Hunter Confirms WVU Verbal With Excellent Visit

There wasn't much doubt that D'Angelo Hunter was solidly committed to West Virginia, and his recent visit to campus confirmed that selection.

D'Angelo Hunter committed to WVU without having yet seen the campus, which isn't unheard of. However, there always remains the chance that a prospect finds something entirely different than what he bargained for, and has second thoughts. That wasn't the case, though, when the junior college prospect made his trip to West Virginia last weekend.

"I definitely felt the whole family aspect," he said of his impressions of the visit. "Everyone is really supportive of each other, and Coach Huggins is just so great with the players. It definitely made me know that I made the right decision. The big thing was just how much of a family the whole team is."

Hunter was also impressed with West Virginia's facilities.

"You know it's a power program and the facilities are going to be great, but they were all fantastic," he noted. "They are redoing a lot of things too, and that is going to make them even better."


Hunter continues to work on his ballhandling and perimeter defense, and also had an interesting comment on strength.

"I have to get [physically] stronger, but I also have to get mentally stronger," he said, showing some good foresight in respect to the rigors of Division I play. "I need to make sure my mental focus and basketball awareness are there all the time."

Hunter also noted that while he can play both the two and the three positions, that he sees himself fitting at the two spot.

"I can play wherever I am needed and wherever there's the chance to play, but I think that with my shooting ability I am definitely ready to play the two."
