    Reyshawn Terry just seems to win. 2002 has seen the Junior Wing Forward lead Reynolds High School and his AAU team to State Championships. College Coaches love winners and they are beginning to show their love by making offers to this versatile wing player. TSW got up with Reyshawn and his AAU/High School coach Andre Gould to see how his recruitment has progressed now that the spring contact period is over.

    We asked coach Gould if UNC and UConn were now the leaders to land the services of Terry. "They are in the top 5, but Wake Forest, NC State and Clemson also need to be listed also." Gould said "He likes those coaches as well, Coach Sendek, Prosser, and Shyatt. With the exception of UNC, all of those schools have officially offered Reyshawn. He is going to take his time to make the right decision."

    We also talked briefly to Terry who confirmed the list. "I would say Connecticut and UNC are my top 2 right now, but I also like NC State, Wake Forest and Clemson."

    We also asked Terry about rumors that he and Kappa teammate/friend Chris Paul might play on the next level together. "If it can be worked out, we would like that to happen. But he has to do what's best for him and same goes for me. But if we can play together, that would be great."

    Reyshawn has a busy summer planned playing for Kappa Magic as well as attending Nike and the NBA camp.

    Thanks to TSW for their contribution to Terry's profile.

April 28, 2002 - David Hall: Scouting Report

    Reyshawn Terry 6-7 SF Kappa Magic - Rey continues to be an enigma. In the quarterfinals, he was a non-factor for the entire first half, chalking up 3 points and several turnovers. In the second half, Rey stepped up and made several plays at both ends of the floor that allowed his team to pull out the victory. He unofficially finished with 19 points (6-18 from the floor including 4-8 3-pointers and 3-4 free throws), 5 rebounds and 1 assist. In the semifinals, Rey finished 4-12 from the floor, 1-4 3-pointers and 4-5 free throws for 13 points to go with 5 rebounds.

    Just like at the Boo Williams Invitational, Rey looks the part of a big time wing player, but his general lack of intensity and willingness to settle for jumpers instead of challenging defenders left me underwhelmed. There is no doubt that there is a lot of natural ability there, but the question is to what extent will it be used.

April 8, 2002 - David Hall: Scouting Report

    Reyshawn Terry 6-7 SF RJ Reynolds/Kappa Magic - By far the biggest disappointment of the weekend. Long and quick, you would think that he would be the ultimate wing player when you look at him. However, his production did not live up to the hype.

    Rumors are he was sick this weekend. Even so, it was Rey's style of play that disappointed me. He consistently settled for jumpers that were not falling all weekend, as opposed to using his athleticism to pressure defenders and get to the basket. He showed a couple glimpses of his potential, including an acrobatic follow-up slam in traffic on the opening night, but for the most part he was a non-factor on a very good team. His ball-handling and rebounding were average at best.

    Defensively, you would expect this type of athlete to leave his mark with his team's constant pressure defense. He did get his hands on some passes, but often he would disappear on the defensive end.

    Despite his poor play this weekend, Rey will be a big-time player at the next level if he gets a boost of aggressiveness to his playing style.
