Terrell getting Pac-12 attention

Talented junior wing Christian Terrell has three Pac-12 schools recruiting him the hardest.

A versatile wing from Sacramento (Calif.), 6-foot-4, 180-pound Christian Terrell is a kid who has been heavily recruited since he was a freshman.

Terrell is a very good passer who can also create his own shot and play multiple positions on the wing.

The junior is happy with how his game is coming along.

"I'm trying to keep getting better," Terrell said. "I've gotten stronger mentally and physically. My jump shot has gotten way better. I'm all around just getting better.

"The next step is continuing to play a whole game physically against bigger people and really locking down on defense."

While there are a lot of schools seriously recruiting Terrell, he feels that three are on him the hardest.

"The schools that really want me are probably Colorado, USC and Washington," Terrell said. "I haven't visited Washington yet but I've heard coach (Lorenzo) Romar plays a lot of the younger guys and they get up and down so I like that.

"I'm still learning about Colorado; that's a trip I have to plan. I went to USC and loved it. I love the campus. I really like Jason Hart and what they're doing down there."

Terrell hopes to take more visits and throughout that process, he'll see which schools have what he's looking for before he makes a commitment.

"Campus life, coaching style and player involvement on and off the court," Terrell said. "Staying close to home would be nice but I'm willing to leave. The end of this summer going into my senior year I should have a decision."
