URI Lands Top Recruiting Target Jared Terrell

Friday, May 16, 2014

 

Jared Terrell, class of 2014 basketball player from Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, and a consensus Top 100 recruit, has committed to play for the University of Rhode Island.

 

 

Terrell originally committed to Oklahoma State, choosing the Cowboys over URI, Providence, and several other schools. He was granted a release from his letter of intent at OSU in late April and re-opened his recruitment.

Terrell visited Boston College on May 5th, and the Eagles were the presumed favorites to land him after hiring Preston Murphy away from URI as an assistant coach. He chose not to visit Providence, and at that point it was a 2-horse race. He visited Kingston on May 6th.

The 6’3” Terrell is a dynamic combo guard who will form one of the best young backcourts in the Atlantic 10 with fellow freshman Jarvis Garrett and 2013 A-10 Co-Rookie of the Year E.C. Matthews. His signing gives URI head coach

Dan Hurley another strong freshman duo to usher in the next chapter for the program.

One of the factors for not choosing BC was a perceived "ability to win right away" at URI. Let's hope this doesn't turn out to be disillusion. In any event, why the young man chose what is clearly a mid-major school over the prestigious ACC, where the most America's most noteworthy programs like Duke, UNC and Syracuse reside, is head scratching. But stranger things have happened in college basketball. This no doubt will be a make or break year for Hurley. In spite of his lack of coaching skill and success, he needs to at the very minimum make the NIT or go look for another job.
