Terrell Announces Decision

North Augusta, SC -- Shortly after receiving the good news that 2009 guard C.J. Harris had committed to the Demon Deacon program this past week, head coach Dino Gaudio received more good news. Sunday evening, 2010 guard J.T. Terrell publicly committed to Wake Forest.

"I liked the coaches," J.T. Terrell told DeaconSports immediately following his team's final game Sunday evening at the Peach Jam. "The school is great education-wise and they have my major and everything. I know the players and I'm real comfortable with them."

Terrell was thought to be leaning to Wake Forest for some time but waited until last week before letting the coaches know that he would be a Demon Deacon. "Coach Gaudio and Coach Muse -- last week I talked to them and let them know. They were real happy about that."

"Coach Gaudio, Coach Muse, Coach Kelsey, Coach Battle, I know them all," Terrell added. "We're real real tight. I met them last year and in Vegas they had offered. I'm just real comfortable with them."

Terrell, who also noted that he is comfortable with and has played with the entire team, said that Virginia, Miami, and Charlotte had all offered while Virginia Tech, Kentucky, and others were making a pitch at the 6'3, 180 pound wing guard.

Although Terrell is known for his shooting, he said he plans to continue to work hard on that aspect of his game throughout the summer. "I think I need to work on my jump shot mostly. I've just got to keep on that and also getting to the hole."
