The path of five-star forward Terrence Jennings continues to wind a strange path. According to his head coach at Durham (N.C.) Mt. Zion Antonio Fozard, Jennings withdrew from school to transfer to another prep school. Jennings, who most likely won't be back at Mt. Zion, has a different story along with an official school list.
According to Fozard of Mt. Zion, Jennings is headed to Fitchburg (Mass.) Notre Dame Prep.
"Terrence isn't here any more," said Fozard. "He withdrew from school today and is headed to Notre Dame Prep. I had to turn away at least 15 division one coaches this afternoon. I don't know how many of them will keep recruiting him."
Jennings, however, was surprised at the comments of Coach Fozard and refuted their veracity.
"I don't understand why he would say this," said Jennings. "I went home to Georgia to be with my father and work on some things. I had permission from the school and had no idea that coaches were coming to watch me today. I was planning on coming back to Mt. Zion tomorrow, but after what Coach Fozard said, I don't know what I'm going to do."
Maintaining that Maryland, despite his recent decommitment from the Terrapins, is still his number one school, Jennings also revealed the other schools that are on his list.
"My number one school is still Maryland," he said. "I'm also considering Kentucky, UConn, Miami and Virginia. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my visits other than my visit to Maryland. I'm still discussing that with my father."
Jennings is the No. 15 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
Terrence Jennings scouting report:
A top notch athlete, Jennings runs the floor extremely well for a post player. He is also a strong offensive rebounder and shot blocker on the defensive end. His offensive game is not just limited to around the rim as he is developing a face up game as well. Gaining more strength and defensive rebounding are areas that need to improve, but there is no denying Jennings' tremendous upside.
