Baylor Lands 4-Star 2022 Guard Dillon Hunter

The Bears picked up a big piece from Georgia

NCAA Basketball: Central Arkansas at Baylor Tim Flores-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor added the first member of the 2022 recruiting class with Dillon Hunter’s commitment. He’s No. 42 nationally in 247’s rankings.

Hunter picked Baylor over a host of schools, including Auburn, Florida State, Alabama and Clemson.

Assuming nobody leaves early, he’ll join a backcourt with Adam Flagler, LJ Cryer and Langston Love.

Hunter announced his decision on SI. He credited Baylor’s Special Assistant & Director of Player Development, Jared Nunes, in his article. He also mentioned Scott Drew showing him virtual tours.

The 6-foot-3 Atlanta native played on Davion Mitchell’s former AAU team.

The Bears should add more guys to the 2022 class. I’m expecting at least four departures—you never know in college basketball—after this season between graduation and the NBA Draft, which leaves Baylor with one open scholarship (they have three commitments in 2021). The Bears then have Matt Mayer set to graduate in 2022, which opens a scholarship in 2022 too.

This is a great start to the class for the Bears.
