Connor Hunt – 6-4 – D – Alamo, Calif.
(De La Salle HS)
A high school All-American in 2011, Hunt was a three year letter winner at De La Salle HS, serving as team captain during his senior season. He was a two-time first-team all-league selection and helped his squad to back-to-back section championships in 2009 and 2010. Hunt also played football and basketball.
DeLuca on Hunt: Connor will bring to the team what we’ve been lacking on defense over the past few seasons, as he has tremendous size. He’s a great athlete and is one of the best defenders in his class. We’re excited to see what he will be able to do based on his size, range and skills.
