Jared Terrell Visits Boston College, Rhody (UPDATED)
Former Oklahoma State pledge Jared Terrell visited Boston College on Monday and Rhode Island on Tuesday, sources told SNY.tv.
Adam Finkelstein reported that Terrell said he “really enjoyed” his visit to BC.
Boston College recently hired Jim Christian as head coach and Christian added Preston Murphy, a former Rhode Island assistant, and Scott Spinelli, a Massachusetts native, to his staff.
The 6-foot-3 Terrell of Brewster (N.H.) Academy picked Oklahoma State last September over Rhode Island, Providence and Cincinnati. He is ranked No. 66 in the Class of 2014 by Rivals.com.
Providence is no longer recruiting Terrell, sources told SNY.tv, while Rhode Island remains in the mix.
“Terrell is a classic body guard,” New York recruiting guru Tom Konchalski told SNY.tv when he signed. “You have point guards, scoring guards and body guards. He’s sort of a combination guard. He played very well in the spring in the EYBL and I think that was a function of him getting in much better shape.
“He has a BCS-ready body. He’s really strong. He handles the ball OK, but he can even go inside and post it up. He would be one of the better rebounding guards that they would have I would think.”
