Boston College Basketball Recruiting: SG Jared Terrell Verbals To Rhode Island

The 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Weymouth chooses Rhode Island over BC.

One of the top uncommitted recruits in the 2014 class has made up his mind. Weymouth, Massachusetts native Jared Terrell has verballed to Rhode Island.

The 6-foot-3 shooting guard chooses the Rams over Boston College.

"I just thought it was a really good fit," Terrell told SNY.tv by phone. "Me and Coach [Dan] Hurley's relationship is really strong. There system fits my style of play. They're going to put me in a postion to succeed."

"I decided [Thursday] night," Terrell said. "I was going back and between them and BC. I couldn't make up my mind and it was one of the hardest decisions i have made."

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. Last month Terrell reopened his commitment citing family issues, including the recent death of a grandmother. Terrell visited both Boston College and Rhode Island over a week ago, and even picked up a late offer from Pittsburgh, before making his decision.

Ultimately it sounds as though BC was a bit late to the party here, with Rhode Island having finished second to Oklahoma State the first time around. A perceived "ability to win right away" also appears to have been a deciding factor for Terrell:

Losing out on Terrell stings a bit, but certainly doesn't make or break Jim Christian and staff's recruiting efforts in 2014. Following the Diallo pickup and Jeremy Miller re-opening his commitment, BC has two open scholarship spots in 2014-15.
