Terrell talks visits

Things are picking up again for Jared Terrell on the recruiting trail. The four-star wing made a pair of recent unofficial visits.

Four-star wing Jared Terrell is one of the most physically imposing players in the 2014 class. His strength and athleticism are impressive, and also his offer list is picking up steam. Recently Terrell made two visits with another one coming up.

"I think the summer went well," said Terrell. "I feel like I improved a lot from last year and it has helped me out with my recruitment and picking up offers."

At the end of things the No. 27 overall prospect was out with an injured foot, but that injury is healing and coming along nicely.

"The recovery is going real good," said Terrell. "I have a doctor's appointment this week to check it out and see how it is going."

Despite being in a walking boot, that hasn't limited Terrell's ability to make unofficial visits.

"I took a visit to Temple on Tuesday and the University of Maryland on Monday," Terrell noted. "I think in mid-September I am going to go to Cincinnati as well."

The trip to Maryland is one that was especially impressive for Terrell.

"Maryland really caught my eye," he explained. "The campus is great and they really love basketball at the school. It was just a great place with great facilities and a beautiful campus."

Also Terrell enjoyed his time at Temple, and feels it is a place where he could definitely fit in.

"The arena at Temple is nice and it is fairly close to home and it feels like home," said Terrell. "I liked what I saw at Temple."

In terms of the upcoming trip to Cincinnati, Terrell is just looking to gain information on the school.

"I don't know what to expect," he said of Cincinnati. "I just want to keep my options open and see what it is like down there and what they have to offer."

Along with those three schools, Terrell says numerous others are showing him significant attention.

"Providence, Boston College, Miami, Florida, St. John's, Kansas, Kansas State, and Texas are all calling me," he said.

One school that has really picked up the interest is Kansas. The Jayhawks are expected to evaluate Terrell at Brewster Academy this year.

"I don't know a ton about Kansas, but I know they have had some great players like Danny Manning and Thomas Robinson," said Terrell. "They do a good job of getting their players to play at the highest level."

When on the visits and when he talks to coaches, Terrell says he is looking for one specific thing.

"I look for the relationship that the coaches have with their players," said Terrell. "I am just looking for a place that is like a family."
