Whisnant On Fire

6'4 shooting guard Terry Whisnant has been on fire lately. He enjoyed a terrific season at Cherryville High School, averaging 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists per contest. Last weekend, Whisnant had a great showing at the Carolina Challenge and his recruitment is starting to pick up.

Few players in North Carolina's 2011 class have the ability to shoot the basketball like Terry Whisnant. This season, Whisnant was named All-Conference, All-State, District Player of the Year, and Gaston Gazette Player of the Year.

"We played pretty well this season," said Whisnant. "The season did not end like we wanted it to but that will just motivate us for next season. Individually, I think I had a good season but I want to come back even stronger next year."

Last weekend at the Carolina Challenge, Whisnant was able to open a lot of eyes with his improved overall game and elite scoring ability. "The Challenge was a lot of fun. I was more comfortable out there than I was last season and I had great teammates that got me the ball. It was fun."

Whisnant is know as a fantastic shooter, but according to him, there is more to his game than just the long ball. "Of course, my shooting ability and range are strengths of my game. I just take what the defense gives me. If my man is laying off then I'll shoot it but if he is up on me I have the ability to drive to the basket."

College coaches have taken note of the 2011 scorer and are beginning to put offers on the table. "I have offers from Charlotte, East Carolina, Gardner Webb, and Western Carolina. I am also hearing from South Carolina, Florida State, Clemson, Richmond, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest."

Whisnant stated that he has "quite a bit" of interest in Wake Forest but is in no rush to make a decision and will go where he feels most comfortable.
