On Friday afternoon, D2 shooting guard, Darweshi Hunter of Central State, announced he had received three D1 offers. One of those were from coach Scott Nagy’s staff at Wright State. The Raiders currently have 11 scholarship players on their 2020-21 roster.
Hunter is originally from Phoenix, Arizona. He spent his first year of high school in that city but moved to Cincinnati for his Sophomore year. Hunter would spend the next three years at nearby Princeton High School in the Sharonsville area of Cincinnati. There he found his real niche, scoring the basketball. He became a 1,000-point scorer and made the All-Ohio team during his senior season.
Out of High School, Hunter was getting D1 interest. Some Patriot League schools were scouting him, and he even got an offer from Central Connecticut State. He decided to stay local though, and attend Central State in Wilberforce. There he was named a member of the All-SIAC First Team, SIAC Freshman of the Year, and a BoxToRow.com D2 All American. Hunter finished 2020 leading the conference in scoring with 20.7 PPG. He also led the team with 6.1 RPG, while shooting 51% from the field.
Wright State hosted Central State in their season opener. Central counted it as an exhibition, but Hunter scored a very impressive 35 points in that game. Along with that, he tied for the most rebounds in the game, hitting four three-pointers and shooting 62% from the field. Two weeks later, he had a double-double against MAC squad Miami (OH). Then two weeks after that, against new-D2, former D1 squad Savannah State, he scored 22 points, completing a double double.
Hunter’s film shows that he is a catch and shoot, three-point shooter. But when there is an open lane, he loves to go up for an alley-oop or dunk.
Hunter also announced offers from Bryant and Drake on Friday.
