I spoke with class of 2015 recruit Hunter Shelton.  The 6’7 SG/SF  is rising up the ranks, hails from the Bluegrass State and is more than just a shooter:

Brian: What do you think are the strengths of your game, and what do you want to improve on going forward?

Hunter Shelton: My biggest strength is definitely scoring but I need to improve my defense and my rebounding mostly.

Brian: What do you look for in terms of style of play when considering a school?

Hunter Shelton:  I like the run and gun style of play, I like to get up and down the floor and run the whole game, up tempo.

Brian: Very cool… What schools are you most interested in hearing from and who has been most interested in you so far ( I know it’s still early)?

Hunter Shelton:  Im only a junior but I’ve been hearing from WKU, EKU, NKU, Louisiana Tech, Texas Tech, Murray St., Tennessee Tech, Morehead State…..Gardner-Webb, and Army has offered me.

Brian: What college teams did you grow up rooting for?
