Highly-Ranked SG Nate Hinton Commits To Houston Over Many Power Conference Programs

Houston football has battled Power Five schools in recruiting for a few years, and on Sunday night, the Cougars' basketball program landed a big fish over some top programs as well.

Nate Hinton 6-foot-6 shooting guard out of North Carolina, is the No. 125 player in the class of 2018.

247Sports' composite rankings list him as a three-star recruit, but Scout, Rivals, and ESPN all rank him as a four-star player.

He announced his decision last night.

Hinton, the No. 24 composite shooting guard in the class and No. 9 recruit in North Carolina, has some pretty impressive offers.

Clemson, Creighton, Florida State, Georgetown, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Oklahoma State, Penn State, Virginia Tech, and a number of others.

He joins three-star point guard Antoine Davis in Houston's class, which currently ranks No. 29 overall and No. 2 in the AAC.
