Weight: 195
College: SMU
Classification: Junior
Birthdate: 7/5/1999

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round

Pros:

Adequate scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Good rebounder for his size
Solid defender that can get steals and blocks
Good athlete
Solid motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
May lack an elite first step off the dribble
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Can be too passive on offense
Can be undisciplined defensively

Summary:

Feron Hunt is an athletic, energetic combo forward that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA.  He is a rangy defender that can cover a lot of ground on that side of the ball, and he is a good shot blocker for his size, as he can make it difficult for his opponents to get their shots off.

He also does a good job of attacking the basket to score the basketball, and he especially excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays.  Hunt will need to improve his jump shot and cut down on turnovers that he may commit in games, but he is an intriguing prospect that could end up going in the second round of the 2021 draft.
