Terrell has offers coming in

College coaches are going to be keeping close tabs on Jared Terrell during the month of July.

Five-star prospect Jared Terrell is one of the top backcourt players in the 2014 class. The New Hampton (NH) School product has been excellent all spring and is looking forward to a big July in front of a host of coaches.

At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Terrell is a physically imposing prospect whose strength and athleticism is second to none. Now Terrell feels he is adding more skill to that natural physical ability.

"I thought I improved a lot with my jump shot and ball handling," said Terrell. "Also my decision making has improved so I think I can play either guard position."

Recruiting wise it should be no surprise that Terrell's phone has been very busy since June 15.

"Providence, Boston College, Cincinnati, Iowa, Iowa State, Miami, Connecticut offered, Rutgers, and there are some others," said Terrell.

A recent offer from UConn is one that Terrell is excited to get, and shows how his game has come along.

"It was big to get an offer from them," said Terrell. "It showed that my work is paying off, and I know I just need to continue to work harder. UConn is a good program though, and I am definitely interested in them."

Another school that has been very busy in the recruitment for a while is Cincinnati. The Bearcats have made it clear to Terrell that he is a top priority.

"They have been after me since my freshman year," Terrell explained. "Coach (Darren) Savino has been in contact with me a lot. We talk about the school, me visiting, and just a lot of things."

Recently Terrell made a visit to Providence, and he came away impressed with the school.

"I thought Providence was a good school," said Terrell of the Friars. "They are good people, and I think it is a program on the rise."

Providence's Big East rival Rutgers has also been one of the schools showing him the most attention.

"Rutgers is staying in contact and calling me a lot," he explained. "I am just staying in contact with them and seeing what happens."

For now the No. 21 prospect is taking things slowly, but he does have an idea of what he is looking for in a school.

"I am just looking at how much of a family it is and how my game will fit in at their school," he explained.
