Blake Hinson Signs with Ole Miss Hoops
May 4, 2018


OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss head men’s basketball coach Kermit Davis announced that four-star guard/forward Blake Hinson signed his National Letter of Intent and will join the Rebels for the upcoming 2018-19 season. Hinson, a guard/forward who originally was a 2019 prospect, reclassified to the 2018 class and will make his way to Oxford this fall.

“Blake is a very skilled 6-7, 225-pound guard/forward,” said Davis. “He really shoots with range, plays off the bounce and what caught my eye is that he has really quick feet to guard multiple positions. Blake comes from an outstanding family, and his dad, Denny, has been an excellent coach for years at all levels.”

Hinson is a four-star prospect ranked No. 102 in the country by Rivals.com. A native of Deltona, Florida, the 6-7 wingman spent the past season at basketball powerhouse Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita, Kansas. “Luke Barnwell is an excellent coach with a fantastic culture at Sunrise Christian, where Blake really enhanced his game,” said Davis.

His versatility as a guard and forward has prompted 247Sports.com to declare him the No. 1 recruit in the state of Kansas. Hinson averaged 10 points per game, six rebounds per game and two steals per game. He led Sunrise Christian to championships at the Saint James Invitational, the Quincy Shootout and the Lighthouse Classic. At the 2018 Saint James Invitational, Hinson propelled his team to three victories while earning a spot on the all-tournament team.

Prior to attending Sunrise Christian, Hinson was a standout at Deltona High. During the 2016-17 season, he led the region in scoring with 29.3 ppg. Hinson earned all-area first team honors and helped his team to an appearance in the Region 2-7A semifinals. Alongside his older brother Evan, currently a guard at South Carolina, the duo led Deltona to the school’s first ever state final four. Hinson was also a wide receiver in high school, starting on the football team as an eighth grader at Warner Christian.
