Junior to Watch: Reyshawn Terry

The Carolina coaching staff has been keeping a close eye of late on a strikingly athletic junior wing at Winston-Salem (N.C.) Reynolds.

Reyshawn Terry stands 6-7 and about 215 pounds and possesses both forward and guard skills.

"He's every bit of 6-7 -- almost 6-8 now," Reynolds head coach Howard West told Inside Carolina today. "He's a two guard and he'll even play a little bit of point for us as well."

Terry was the leading scorer and rebounder at nearby Kernersville (N.C.) Glenn before transferring to Reynolds in late Janurary.

After less than a month at the new school, West is already thoroughly impressed.

"He can jump so high," he said. "I think he can hang his elbow in the rim. Matter of fact, the other night, he caught an alley-oop, and his head was nearly on level with the rim. He caught it, cocked it and then jammed it. He's a great finisher. Shoots the three well. He's got a good mid-range game and he's starting to develop his first step. Once he gets that down -- look out.

"Defensively, he's fitting in pretty good. I think offensively, he's really starting to come along because he's such a good athlete."

The local talent has quickly garnered interest from some of the area's big schools.

"Wake, NC State, Carolina and Clemson from the ACC are interested," West said. "He's been down to games at Wake, NC State, North Carolina and Clemson."

Tar Heel assistants Doug Wojcik and Fred Quartlebaum were in attendance over a week ago to watch Terry.

"They really like him," West said of the UNC staff. "In fact, they've already requested unofficial transcripts. They seem really interested in him."
