Hunter went to NC State in May of 2000 after serving for two years as an assistant coach at his alma mater, Duquesne. During his two seasons as an assistant at Duquesne, Hunter was responsible for on-floor coaching and off-campus recruiting. He helped the Dukes staff bring in the top recruiting class in the Atlantic 10 in 1999.

A four-year letter-winning point guard for Duquesne (1993-96), Hunter finished his career ranked third on the Dukes' all-time assist list (439). He tallied 971 points and 218 steals while shooting 74.4 percent from the free throw line and 35.1 percent from the three-point arc. After starting 93 of his 103 career games for the Dukes, Hunter was a two-time recipient of the Slhugo Green Award, presented annually to Duquesne's top upperclassman. He was also a three-year captain.

During his playing career at Duquesne, Hunter spent the summers as an assistant coach for an AAU squad, the Pittsburgh Jots. He worked with Head Coach John Miller, the father of Sean Miller, the head coach at Arizona and previously Xavier and a former assistant at NC State.

In high school, Hunter starred on the gridiron as well as the hardwood. He was an accomplished football quarterback as well as a point guard at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. Following his high school career, he teamed with former Syracuse guard Lawrence Moten to lead New Hampton School in New Hampshire to a 23-3 record prior to enrolling at Duquesne.

Hunter completed his liberal arts degree at Duquesne in 1996, and earned his master's degree in education from NC State in 1998. While earning his master's degree, Hunter was a student manager at NC State under Herb Sendek from 1996-98 and accompanied the Wolfpack to a pair of NIT appearances.
