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.
