October 16, 2020

Top-10 junior Brandon Huntley-Hatfield is down to five programs, he told The list of five programs includes Tennessee, Ole Miss, Auburn, Wake Forest, and Kansas.

The 6-foot-9 prospect out of Scotland Performance Institute (PA.), was formerly enrolled at national powerhouse IMG Academy but ultimately decided to transfer this off-season.

He’s seen as one of the most dynamic forwards in the entire country and he’s now downed his college choices to five schools and he broke them down with

Auburn: “They were my first ever offer which means a lot. They’re recruiting me as a 3/4 perimeter player with the ability to interchange between inside & out, looking for me to come in and have an immediate impact and be an important part of their program.”

Tennessee: “The school is located in Knoxville which is my second home. They’re very big on player development as well as I am. Coach Barnes has coached a lot of great players including players in my position such as Tobias Harris & he also coached Kevin Durant. They always kept in contact, and they want me to come in and play immediately as well as have an instant impact.”

Ole Miss: “I visited there & loved it. Coach Davis wants me to be the best player to ever come through the program, believes I can help win them a national championship, will run the offense through me as a freshman. They always kept in contact and puts my family first.”

Wake Forest: “The coaching staff is familiar with my AAU coach. They talk about me coming in and having the freedom to play my game. They said if I come they’re going to coach me hard and help me become an NBA prospect hopefully. Coach Forbes is a players coach.”

Kansas: “I’ve always wanted Kansas as an offer, Coach Self has coached a lot of great players. So once they offered me they always kept in contact, hitting me up every day and that is including my mother. They talk to her also.”

As far as a commitment timeline, Huntley-Hatfield remains unsure and is going to just let the process play out. In addition, a reclass to 2021 isn’t currently in the works but he hasn’t counted it out. School wise he’s already qualified to reclass but he said that isn’t going to happen.
