New England Renaissance Series: #14 Jarred Terrell

The New England Renaissance Series is an ongoing countdown of some of the best prospects in the region regardless of class. It is important not to dwell on the order of the rankings but rather on the unprecedented amount of talent the region possesses.

#14 Jarred Terrell (2013)
Height: 6'2    Weight:185
Hometown: Weymouth Mass
School Team: New Hampton Prep
Travel Team: Expressions Elite
NERR Rank: 7    National Rank: NR

Terell is one of the fastest rising stars in all of New England. When the new national rankings come out it would be a surprise if he doesn't make most lists. Terrell is a power guard who can create his own shot, knock down mid rang jumpers, or go to the rack all with ease. He should continue to increase his profile next year as he will move on to prep school. Here is his ESPN evaluation and highlight tape.

Terrell is a power guard with good athleticism and a strong body. He is as aggressive as he is powerful, getting after people on the defensive end and going hard to the rim offensively. He is a versatile defender who can make plays in full court pressure situations and also lock up opposing scorers in the half-court, bodying up with his upper body without fouling. Offensively, he is at his best in the open floor where he drives down hill to the rim but also has the first step to create his own shot in the half-court. His physical tools allow him to drive and finish through contact.
