ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – John Marshall’s five-star recruit Matthew Hurt was reportedly set to have at least 2 blue blood schools make in-home visits today, but his father, Richard Hurt, tells Sports Director Pat Lund the family shut his recruitment down.
Hurt is sought after by Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, and North Carolina.
Hurt’s father went on to say it would be too much to have all four schools in today given the recruiting calendar closes at midnight.
So Matthew’s recruitment is over, and we now await his college decision on Friday. Coaches from far and wide have tried to convince Hurt to join them at their respective schools, with Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski going so far as to bring his entire staff to Rochester on March 6th….
Hurt is unique in that he has four blue blood schools vying for his services, while practically every other top recruit has two, or at the most three.
Hurt is a legitimate one-and-done prospect, possessing a highly-skilled and varied offensive attack you rarely see at his size.
The 6-9 forward returned home yesterday from a trip to Portland, where he was one of 12 American high school seniors to represent Team USA at the prestigious NIKE Hoop Summit.
