Local Basketball Players Bringing In D1 Recruiters

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Two of the area's highly recruited players, 6'3" Jordan Long and 6'5" Kenny Bunton, were both on the East Hamilton Hurricane roster last year along with 6' Mac Bower. Jordan Long has transferred from East Hamilton to Chattanooga Central after a house fire at his home. Long will be playing for Coach Rick Rogers and, with the speed and the athleticism of the young Pounders, should be a lot of fun to watch. 

Both players are getting heavy looks from several major D1 programs and they both are expected to make major contribution to their school programs for the next three years. 

Long and Bunton both have played on the opposing AAU for several years, but both joined forces last year to play for the Tennessee Tigers AAU program and Coach Chip Smith out of Nashville. Both started for the Tigers program helping lead them in several major tournament wins this year and beating some of the top teams in the nation. 

They both are expected to make major contributions to their school programs for the next three years. Chattanooga basketball is drawing a lot of young talent this year and the years to come. Look for a lot of recruiters to be sitting on the sidelines in the coming years in the Chattanooga area.
