In less than a month, we’ll know where Matthew Hurt is going to college. The five-star forward told USA Today Sports that he plans to announce his college decision April 19 at his high school in Minnesota. He’s down to Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, and Kansas.
“My birthday is on April 20 so I’m gonna do it the day before,” said Hurt, who averaged 37 points and 12 rebounds a game this season. “I do not know where I’m going yet. The coaches have done a really good job of recruiting me; they haven’t been over the top with it, and I appreciate that. I can only pick one school, and I know that I’ll be happy with my decision in the end.”
Hurt is one of several top 2019 players, including future Cats Tyrese Maxey and Kahlil Whitney, in Atlanta for the McDonald’s All-American Game this week. Our own Jack Pilgrim has his boots on the ground and will bring you the latest from the practices and interviews today.
