After a short stay at Goldsboro (N.C.) Charis Prep, 2008 prospect Terrence Jennings, of Sacramento, Calif., has settled in at Mt. Zion in Durham, N.C. The 6-foot-10, 250-pound center has a handful of high-majors tracking him closely.
"Maryland is the number one school on him the hardest," said Mt. Zion coach Tony Fozard. "The next hardest would be Arizona. UCLA, Louisville, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have also called on him.
"I don't think that Maryland has officially offered yet. They are waiting on his test score and for him to get a chance to visit the school."
Having played eight games for Mt. Zion, Jennings is averaging 14 points and four blocks per game. Still quite raw on the offensive end, Jennings is an aggressive force around the basket.
"Terrence is a dunker," said Fozard. "He wants to model his game after Amare Stoudemire. I told him that in high school all Amare did was dunk the ball."
Jennings participated in the ABCD Camp last summer.
Five-star 2009 prospect Karron Johnson has also recently joined the Mt. Zion roster after departing from the Patterson School.
