College Basketball: Iowa State’s Tyrese Hunter Leaving Program

Ames — In the next line of tough news for in-state programs, the reigning Big 12 Freshman of the Year Tyrese Hunter has announced his intentions to depart from Iowa State.

The native of Racine, Wisconsin,  is coming off a freshman season in which he averaged 11 points for a Cyclone team that made it to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.

He finished third in the Big 12 in assists at 4.9 per game.

Like Green, the re-recruitment of Hunter is expected to be hotly contested.

Recruiting circles have pegged Hunter to wind up at North Carolina.
