Amauri Hardy grew up in the Detroit area, going to high school at North Farmington, but Tom Izzo never truly went all-in on his recruitment. He was a mid-rated three-star prospect, ranked the No. 228 overall player and 43rd-best point guard in the nation.
But Izzo could get another chance at landing the talented point guard who chose UNLV and spent his last three seasons with the Rebels.
Hardy had an impressive career with UNLV, averaging 13.1 points and 3.5 assists as a sophomore and 14.5 points and 3.3 assists as a junior. He’s set to graduate this summer and become a grad transfer, immediately eligible at the next program he chooses.
