2014 Shooting Guard Has Some Interest In MD

2014 shooting guard Jared Terrell talks about his visit to Maryland.

Jared Terrell realizes that he has a lot of time before he has to make his big decision, but he does have some interest in the University of Maryland.

“I'm open minded,” Terrell said, “I don't want to make a decision too early.”

Terrell, the six-foot-three shooting guard, took an unofficial visit to Maryland in August with several of AAU teammates and enjoyed his visit. Terrell felt very welcomed during his trip to College Park and liked how organized everything was at Maryland. He also liked the big campus and arena as well as College Park's short distance to the big city of Washington D.C. He feels that his relationship with the coaches is not very strong at this time but it is good and it is something that can be built off of. Distance from home doesn't play a factor for him in his decision right now.

“Right now it doesn't play a factor, I just want to go somewhere where I will have the most success,” Terrell said.

He does not plan to take an official visit to Maryland or anywhere in the near future. He believes he has an offer from Maryland at this time but is not 100 percent sure.

In preparation for his junior season, Terrell focused mostly on conditioning and his jump shot. Terrell wanted to improve upon his jump shot with his already strong slashing abilities. His size is another strength for Terrell, which he uses to overpower smaller guards. As a player, he is coachable, he will always give full effort and is a scorer. He does not pattern his game from one specific player, but he likes to pull his game together by watching certain skills from different players. Two players that he likes to watch are Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose and cite the similarities in their slashing abilities.

In a future program, Terrell looks for a team in which its coaches are tight with players and where everybody plays well together and defends. He currently holds offers from a plethora of schools Cincinnati, St. John's, Virginia Tech, Miami, Providence, Boston College, Iowa State, Florida State, Kansas State, Tennessee, Connecticut and Penn State. He does not have a favorite or a list of favorites among those schools at the moment.
