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 ball handling, but he is an intriguing prospect that could end up going in the second round of the 2021 draft.
