Beck taking things slowly

Forward Tervell Beck is one of the more intriguing players in the Midwest in the class of 2016.

Class of 2016 forward Tervell Beck from Cleveland (Ohio) Central Catholic is making a name for himself both on the AAU circuit and during the high school year. The 6-foot-5 forward is making things happen on both ends of the floor, and college coaches are taking note of his play.

"My game has grown a lot, but I think I can do more," said Beck. "Overall I think I have been posting up more and taking advantage of my size."

While Beck has taken a on more of a role as a scorer this year, his high school coach, John Harris, is more concerned with how Beck's entire game has come around.

"It isn't his scoring, it is the jump he has made as a person," noted Harris. "As a freshman he was learning and having fun, and now he has picked up scoring and rebounding. He is getting better at areas that have nothing to do with basketball like leadership which is impressive."

Recruiting wise Beck has picked up offers from schools like Xavier and Dayton, and others such as Cincinnati, West Virginia, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Pittsburgh are all interested in him. That said, recruiting is not the thing on Beck's mind at the moment according to Harris.

"He is a sophomore so there is no rush," said Harris. "He is just enjoying the game, his effort is getting better, and we get calls, but there isn't too much he can do with recruiting right now."

For Beck he is concerned with getting his team ready to win a state title. After a tough stretch of games, Beck feels that his team is battle tested, and they are ready to make a run.

"I think we can make it real far," said Beck. "We just have to continue to come together as a team and play hard every time out."

Look for college coaches to really ratchet up the interest in Beck this spring and summer when he is on the AAU circuit with All-Ohio Red.
