Walk-on from the Ocean State looking to make waves in Orange

North Carolina State v Syracuse

High School: Rogers High School

2017 Stats:

How Did He Get Here?:

What Did Recruiting Sites Say?: Nothing- probably got confused by Rhode Islanders offer to bring them a grinder and coffee cabinet when they showed up at a Rogers game.

Money Quote: Terrell hopes to earn a scholarship in his sophomore year and it’s something that his high school coach Frank Newsome wouldn’t be shocked if it happens.

“He’s not some kid that I would ever doubt,” Newsome said. “Terrell is like one of the hardest working kids ... He believes he can get through anything.”

Twitter feed: None that I could find. Not wasting time on Twitter is probably why Terrell graduated with a 4.1 GPA.

Tweets of Wonder: N/A

What Movie Would Dino Recommend for Him?: Dino will recommend “Commando” where Arnold Schwarzenegger famously tells Captain Bennett to “let off some steam”.

Interesting Nugget O’Interest: Terrell hopes to major in communications and pursue a double minor. His future does look a bit brighter than some other walk-on/Newhouse students from Rhode Island.

Let’s Get a Good Look Atcha: Here’s Terrell last season against a second-rate Pawtucket High School team.
