Terrance Farley Speaks to ITV
6'10 Terrance Farley committed to the University of Louisville in February after Coach Pitino visited and offered a scholarship following his performance against the Central Yellowjackets. Since committing, Farley has shown rapid improvement on the court and surely ranks among the top players in the state of Kentucky.
Known for his rebounding and shot blocking abilities, Farley is beginning to blossom on the offensive end and has become more confident and aggressive on the court in recent months.
In April, Terrance played well in the junior all-star game at the Executive Inn Classic, scoring 19 points and pulling down 9 boards. Throughout the spring and summer months, Farley has been working out against current and former Cardinals on the UofL campus and the competition he's receiving from his future teammates appears to be paying dividends on the court.
Saturday, the athletic center was outstanding against both Owensboro and Ashland. He had 12 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks against Owensboro and 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 blocks against Ashland. Farley faced double and triple teams against both opponents and played only two and half quarters in each game. Farley was active on the boards, strong in the post, and showed some impressive scoring moves and a soft touch in the paint.
Farley, who weighs about 195 pounds, told ITV that he's lifting weights three times a week at PRP in order to gain strength and improve his stamina.
Terrance indicated he will focus on improving his ball handling skills and footwork over the course of the summer and has received an invitation to attend the prestigious Adidas ABCD Camp in Teaneck, NJ, July 7-13. He'll also travel with the Derek Smith All Stars to the Adidas Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas, NV shortly after ABCD.
Farley said he felt the competition he's facing on a daily basis from the UofL players really gives him an advantage on the high school level and he will continue to play with his future teammates throughout the rest of the summer.
Farley, who has often faced off with 6'10 Nouha Diakite during workouts, said the native of Mali is an excellent player for the Cards.
"He's very good and explosive," Farley said.
Farley noted that he's excited about the recruiting class that he is a part and believes it could be the number one class in the nation when Coach Pitino puts the wraps on the class. He seemed excited and impressed with 6'7 Donta Smith's addition last week and predicted big things to come for the Cards.
"I think we can do a lot of great things in the future," Farley said.
