Rozier makes strides

Already it has been a big spring for Terry Rozier and new colleges are beginning to take notice.

The class of 2012 has room for good point guards to emerge, and so far this spring one player who has begun to step it up is Terry Rozier. Out of Cleveland (OH) Shaker Heights High School, Rozier is an athletic guard who has been as productive as nearly anyone.

"It is going real good," said Rozier of his spring. "A few more colleges are coming my way after playing with All-Ohio Red. I am just working hard and trying to show that I can guard the best player on every team we play against."

At 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds, Rozier is athletic enough to finish around the rim and defend on the perimeter while also being a good scorer on the offensive end.

"My shooting is a strength and I try to go to the hole as well," said Rozier of his game. "Also I am really working to get my teammates involved and put them in a position to score."

When it comes to his recruitment Rozier is seeing several new schools come into the equation. Originally he was mostly hearing from mid-major schools, but now also some high-major programs are showing him attention.

"I am hearing mostly from Oklahoma State, Miami, Dayton, Duquesne, St. Joe's, and a few others," Rozier explained. "I have offers from Kent State, Akron, and Cleveland State."

For now his recruitment is simply at the beginning stages and he doesn't have any kind of decision in mind, but Rozier does know what will be important to him when the time comes to make a college choice.

"I am just looking for a school with good coaches," Rozier explained. "Not just coaches who will coach me on the floor, but also ones who will help me out in life and make me a better person."

Currently Rozier is seen as a three-star prospect and the No. 24 point guard in the country.
