BIOGRAPHY: A junior college transfer who mostly came off the bench for Ohio State in 2006-07, Hunter became a full-time starter last season after Buckeyes star Greg Oden departed for the NBA. He averaged 9.9 points and 6.5 rebounds per game as a senior while shooting 59.6 percent from the field. Hunter also blocked 56 shots in 2007-08, including six against No. 1 North Carolina in a 66-55 loss Nov. 28. Had five double-doubles as a senior, including a 17-point, 10-rebound effort in Ohio State's 92-85 victory over Massachusetts to win the NIT championship. Hunter participated in the Portsmouth Invitational in April and played well, averaging a tournament-leading 12.0 rebounds per game. He also averaged 15.7 points in the tournament, where he produced double-doubles in all three contests he played. Hunter is athletic and possesses an impressive wingspan, although he could stand to add some muscle on his frame. He will likely never be a consistent scorer in the pros, as he has no shooting range to speak of and his offensive production is largely dependent on his own offensive rebounding. Hunter is expected to be a second-round draft choice if he is selected at all.
