Before I wrote earlier Thursday that USC was taking a calculated risk in accepting a commitment from ex-Wake Forest guard J.T. Terrell, I reached out to him via his coach at Peninsula College in Washington.
Terrell didn't get the message in time for me to get his voice into that post, but he and Peninsula coach Lance Von Vogt did call back Thursday evening.
Rather than jam their quotes into my previous post, I thought I'd run my conversation with Terrell in Q&A form.
Von Vogt called Terrell the best player he's ever coached at making difficult shots and emphasized that Terrell "has been terrific since he's been here and has done everything he's supposed to do." Terrell explained why he chose USC, how he has become more of a team-first player and what he learned from Wake Forest dismissing him after he received a DUI last month.
JE: You chose USC less than two months after leaving Wake Forest and only a few days after visiting the campus. What mad...
