Tyrell Terry, G, Stanford, 6’2, 160 pounds, 19 years old

As a freshman at Stanford, Terry posted 14 points, with three assists, and a jaw-dropping 40 percent from beyond the arc. He is the definition of an elite sharpshooter. He has a quick release which limits the opposition’s ability to close out on him, and his speed makes him a lethal shooter when wrapping around screens and moving without the ball in his hands.

He will tire out a defense by his ability to constantly move around the floor. The most impressive part is the fact that he isn’t aimlessly moving around the floor, he gets to his hot spots without disturbing the offensive flow. If you hesitate for a moment, Terry will find the opening and get a shot off barring his teammates finding him.

While he will never be seen on the SportsCenter top ten lists for a high-flying dunk, he does have a great ability to finish at the rim. He can not only take some contact but move his body to avoid it while still sinking the layup. Often, players are either elite perimeter scorers or interior scorers, Tyrell Terry comes as close as you can to perfect both.

He can thrive with the ball in his hand thanks to his vision and ability to pass the rock but shows his eyes when a defense applies pressure, often picking up his dribble and freezing.

Despite his heart and hustle, Terry just can not keep up defensively given his size. Teams will have to mask his deficiencies on that end of the floor.

As we inch closer to draft night, I expect Tyrell Terry to be selected closer to the top ten, than the final 10 picks in the first round.
