Four-star wing Dalen Terry committed to the Arizona Wildcats on Tuesday, becoming the first member of UA’s 2020 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-6, 190-pound Terry is the No. 38 player in the country and No. 3 player in Arizona, according to 247Sports composite rankings. He attends Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, the same academy Deandre Ayton went to.
Terry averaged 16.1 points and 11.4 assists per game as a junior, shooting 47 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3, per MaxPreps.
“Good size and very long arms. Still physically immature with plenty of room add strength,” reads his 247Sports scouting report. “Best asset is his passing ability; outstanding vision for positions. Extremely versatile wing. Respectable ball skills and can be at least a secondary ball handler but likely most effective as a playmaking wing. Better shooter from midrange than three. Capable finisher due to size and length. Has physical tools to guard multiple positions. Lot of upside here; if continues to improve as shooter and ball handler has easy NBA upside but worst case should be a high-major starter.”
Terry also had offers from Utah, Cal, USC, Arizona State, Arkansas, Colorado and Vanderbilt among others. The Tempe native used to attend Corona del Sol High School before switching to Hillcrest. He plays for the Compton Magic on the AAU circuit.
Arizona “is the best option for me with it being two hours away, I believe that it is the fastest way for me to get to my dream,” Terry told Corey Evans of Rivals.com. “Sean Miler has had tons of good point guards and has been successful so why not learn from him? Plus, I need a good strength and conditioning program and they have a pretty good one.”
