Terrell to the Big 12

Top 100 shooting guard Jared Terrell will play his college basketball in the Big 12. He committed to Travis Ford and Oklahoma State.

Jared Terrell, a four-star prospect out of Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy, will play his college basketball at Oklahoma State.

Terrell made his final decision Friday evening. He picked Oklahoma State over strong interest from Cincinnati, Rhode Island and Providence.

"I just feel like it was the best fit out of the four," Terrell told Scout.com. "Coach [Travis] Ford is a really good dude, so is coach [Steve] Middletown, the assistant coach that recruited me."

"I just feel like I have a good role," Terrell added. "I can go in there and play a good amount of minutes. I had a good feel for the team when I went there."

Terrell said his visit to Oklahoma State helped him with his decision.

"They recruited me really late, but when I went on my visit I just loved it," Terrell said. "The players were really cool. We all got along. The campus is really nice. The facilities are really nice obviously."

With Rhode Island and Providence not too far from home, some thought it would be tough to get Terrell away from the East Coast, but he said that never factored into his decision making.

"I wasn't too concerned about being close to home or far away," Terrell said. "I was just looking for the best opportunity for me."

Terrell is ranked No. 76 overall in the 2014 recruiting class.
