On Thursday afternoon, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins was in attendance at the Peach Jam event in North Augusta, Sc. to watch 3-star PF Amani Hansberry. Hansberry didn’t disappoint as the 2023 prospect dropped 18 points in Team Durant’s win over MOKAN Elite. Derek Piper of 247 Sports reported that Huggins and his staff watched Hansberry.

Huggins was also in attendance for 2025 5-star Cooper Flagg earlier in the day as well as a 16u matchup between Team CP3 and Florida Rebels, which include many talented members from the class of 2024.

Hansberry (6-foot-8, 225 pounds) was offered by West Virginia on Tuesday. Hansberry averaged 15.8 points and 8.6 rebounds last summer during the AAU circuit.

The recent WVU prospect has received offers from Auburn, Oregon and Xavier over the past couple of days. Hansberry has previously received offers from Boston College, DePaul, Howard, Illinois, LSU, Maryland, Miami, Mississippi State, NC State, Oklahoma State, Pitt, Penn State, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Player Evaluation: Amani Hansberry plays like a traditional power forward but shows a modern touch to his game. Hansberry uses his 6-foot-8, 225-pound build to his advantage, bullying his way into the paint for shots and rebounds. The rising senior possesses a smooth touch to his game and can shoot consistently from mid-range.
