PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (WTAP)- It was in sixth grade when Jamison Hunt really believed that he could play basketball at a very high level. Now, that dream is finally a reality.

Hunt will continue his basketball career at West Virginia State University.

Hunt is expected to be a point guard with the Yellow Jackets, using his high basketball IQ in an up-tempo offense.

He had an impressive high school career with the Ripley Vikings, scoring 1,426 points and earning All-Mountain State Athletic Conference honors.

Hunt also made first-team All-State, becoming only the fourth Viking in history to do so.

Playing ball at West Virginia State gives Hunt the chance to stay close to home and add to a program he strongly respects.

"It feels amazing just knowing that I can continue my basketball career, what I've worked for my entire life," Hunt said.

"It's definitely a sigh of relief. Knowing that with the time and hard word that I've put in, countless hours in the gym and stuff has finally paid off."
