JamesOn Curry, a 6-3, 170-pound combo guard from Eastern Alamance High School in North Carolina, is already committed to North Carolina. So when RivalsHoops.com spoke to him about his summer and he found about Reyshawn Terry's (right) verbal to UNC, Curry's voice picked up with excitement.
"He is going to be great to play with," Curry said. "He is a great athlete. A great wing athlete. Running in the fastbreak with him is going to be a lot of fun."
Curry, who averaged 33 points and four assists last season as a sophomore, played with the North Carolina Gators this past summer. He is versatile. Curry can play both backcourt positions. "I played against Reyshawn at the Pepsi Challenge," Curry said. "I am glad he committed to North Carolina. It's nice to know we are going to have a great team when I get there. Reyshawn can score points. I want to help him score more when I get there."
Curry is going to utilized at both guard positions at North Carolina. "That's what they said they were recruiting me at," Curry said. "I didn't play the whole summer. I left early from the last tournament. My dad didn't want me to get burnt out. But I was trying to work on my catch and shoot shot. I think I made some improvement in it."
Curry heads back to school on August 12th. "I hope there is air conditioning in the school," Curry said. "Sometimes there isn't. It gets hot really here in August. I guess if the air conditioning doesn't work, we get sent home early."
And it's likely Curry will head to the gym to work out. "It's the best place to improve your individual skills," Curry said. "I want to be a complete player by the time I get to North Carolina."
