Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round
Solid shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate rebounder for his size
Decent defender that can get steals
Needs to improve his shooting
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots

Can tend to force the issue too much on offense
Can be a bit turnover prone
Can be undisciplined defensively
Undersized for his position
Tyrese Hunter is an agile, skilled playmaker that has led his team to many wins this past season. He’s shown that he can reliably run the point, but he’ll need to improve his jump shot and focus on the defensive end. He recently announced his decision to transfer to Texas. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate whenever he decides to enter the NBA draft.
