It's getting pretty late in the 2014 recruiting cycle, but that isn't stopping first-year coach Jim Christian and the new Boston College basketball staff from making a late push to land someone ... anyone ... for this year's recruiting class. Christian just happens to be heavily recruiting one of the nation's top uncommitted players.
According to The Recruit Scoop's Alex Kline, 6-foot-3, 220 pound shooting guard Jared Terrell is expected to visit Boston College, Rhode Island and Providence next week. It's actually sounding more and more like BC and Providence may be out ahead of URI at this point.

Terrell is one of only two ESPN 100 players still uncommitted at this stage of the 2014 recruiting cycle. A highly touted recruit out of Brewster Academy in New Hampshire, Terrell verbally committed to Oklahoma State over Cincinnati, Providence and Rhode Island back in September. However, late last week Terrell requested his release from the Cowboys basketball program citing family issues, including the recent death of a grandmother. OSU coach Travis Ford granted a full release on Friday.
A consensus four star recruit, Terrell is regarded as the 66th best player in the 2014 class according to Rivals. He would be a huge, early boost to Christian's recruiting efforts and the Eagles backcourt. Highlights of Terrell below:
