NORMAL - Illinois State men's basketball coach Dan Muller has reportedly received a verbal commitment from a junior college transfer. Bobby Hunter, a 5-foot-10 guard from Gainesville, Florida, scored 25 points per game last season at Sante Fe College.
Hunter reportedly had offers at several Division I schools, Coastal Carolina, Iona and Jacksonville. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
Muller can't comment on any recruits until they sign, according to NCAA rules. The spring signing period begins April 17.
Muller has five scholarships available for the 2013-14 season following the departures of Jon Ekey, Jordan Threloff and Zeke Upshaw.
Hunter could help fill the perimeter scoring void left by senior guard Tyler Brown.
