UVA basketball adds four-star recruit DeAndre Hunter

uva-basketballFour-star small forward DeAndre Hunter has verbally committed to UVA, adding another Top 100 recruit to coach Tony Bennett’s stellar Class of 2016.

Hunter, a 6’7”, 195-pounder, is a scorer and slasher from Pennsylvania whose stock rose in the summer.

Hunter had offers from Maryland, Georgetown, Villanova and Notre Dame, among many others.

Hunter joins the incoming class in 2016 that includes guards Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy and power forward Jay Huff.

Virginia will also add Memphis recruit Austin Nichols, a former Top 25 recruit, and Mamadi Diakite, a five-star power forward who reclassified to the Class of 2015, enrolled at UVA last month and plans to redshirt in 2015-2016.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
