Bob Huggins added the third member of his 2012 recruiting class when 3-star shooting guard Terry Henderson announced his decision to play basketball at WVU.
Henderson is a 6′,5, 180 pound 2-guard from Neuse Baptist Christian School in Raleigh, NC. He chose West Virginia over offers from Maryland, Boston College, Miami, Virginia Tech, Georgia, Richmond, George Mason, and several others.
Henderson is considered one of the best pure scorers in the 2012 class. He has a sweet stroke and seemingly unlimited range on his jumper. He’s more than just a shooter though. Terry possesses excellent athleticism and has shown the ability to get in the lane and finish above the rim. He’s a smooth ball handler that uses his length to his advantage against smaller guards. He’s a very versatile player reminds me a lot of former Providence wing man Marshon Brooks. He has the length and athleticism to play the small forward position at WVU as well as shooting guard.
Henderson is long and very thin at this point. He will definitely need to get in the weight room and add muscle to be a major contributor at this level of college basketball, but as usual, that should’nt be a problem once Huggins and strength coach Andy Kettler get ahold of him.
Henderson took a trip to Morgantown the weekend of the LSU game and was totally blown away by the atmosphere with College GameDay in town. The North Carolina native got the chance to take a tour of the campus and the facilities and walked away very impressed. He decided not to commit on the spot, but several people close to the program believe that his mind was made up that weekend.
Henderson joins Elijah Macon and Eron Harris as the third member of West Virginia’s 2012 recruiting class. He is a great addition to the WVU basketball program and we are more than happy to have him. Welcome to the family, Terry!
