Matthew Hurt, a five-star power forward out of Minnesota, is one of the top uncommitted players in the class of 2019. As you’d imagine, his college decision will come down to some of the top teams in the country.
Hurt is currently planning out his official visit schedule. He’s already been to Kentucky, having visited for the Wildcats’ Dec. 1 win over UNC-Greensboro.
Next up: a trip to North Carolina. On Saturday, he gets to check out one of the premier match-ups left on the non-conference schedules, with the Tar Heels hosting Gonzaga.
Hurt tells the local Post Bulletin that he plans to head to Duke in January and Kansas in February. That leaves a fifth official visit spot which is expected to be down to his home state Minnesota Golden Gophers, where is brother plays, Memphis, and Villanova.
Matthew Hurt also revealed a timeline for his eventual college decision.
He considered making it this fall, but now he plans to make the call in April, a few months after finishing up his planned visits.
Hurt says he will likely announce his college choice in April. He just started his senior season at JM and has to plan recruiting trips around the Rockets’ schedule.
“I was either going to do it during the season or in the fall,” he said of the visits. “I just wanted to use the fall to get better and be here with my family and my friends. Traveling wise, it’s not going to make a difference. It’s only a weekend.”
Hurt is ranked No. 7 in the country, and No. 2 among power forwards, over at 247Sports. He is the fifth-best player that is not yet committed to a school.
