Rebs add Indianapolis star to commitment list

Herbert Terry (SF, Indianapolis, IN) - One of Indiana's top rising seniors has decided to play for Ole Miss next year. The 6' 6 1/2", 225 pound small forward is going to join another former standout from the Indianapolis area, Todd Abernethy.

"I just trust Coaches Dildy and Barnes, and I just felt at home when I went down there to their camp this summer. Oxford is a great place to live. My mother is actually from Sebastapol (MS), so this will give my family down there a chance to see me play," commented Herbert Terry. "I also liked their offense. It was a great fit for me."

Herbert Terry exploded on to the scene this summer when he averaged over 30 points a game at the prestigious Hoosier Shootout.

One of the scouts at the Hoosier shootout came away impressed,

"Terry is a very intense and athletic. He is what you call a freak athlete. The kid is quick, strong, and he probably led the tournament in dunks. He is also a good shot blocker."

Last month, Terry was one of the standouts at the Ole Miss Elite 11 Camp. He reminded most of former Rebel, Jason Smith. Herbert loves to dunk everything in sight, and he is so explosive off of the dribble, which makes it hard to prevent the dunk.

Coach Delaney, Terry's high school head coach, had the following to say:

"Terry is strong, physical, and has a good jump shot. Really, he has developed a nice outside jumper. But his main thing is his explosiveness. He is so explosive around the basket. It is hard to stop him."

Commenting on what Terry Herbert will need to work on for the next level,

"As far as basketball skills go, the only thing he needs to work on is his ball handling skills. He has unlimited upside."

Herbert averaged 14 points and 13 rebounds a game last year for Southport.

According to Coach Delaney, Ole Miss, West Virginia, and Northern Illinois have contacted him the most. Stanford has recently picked up their interest.

Herbert has a 2.3 GPA and a 1240 on his SAT.

Terry will transfer to a school in the Fort Wayne (IN) area in the Fall.
