How Terrell got to College Park
Terrell was set to give up playing basketball. He went to orientation at Indiana, was assigned a roommate and all that, but then heard Mark Turgeon was looking to fill a preferred walk-on spot. He came to Maryland and immediately gelled with superstar guard Melo Trimble.
He showed an immediate eye for the spotlight as a freshman. He could always be found at the end of Maryland’s bench, waving his white towel in celebration.
Making a three-pointer as time expired in Maryland’s win over Rhode Island last season. “I describe it as a game-winner,” Terrell told The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg. “I went wild after I hit it. I mean, I’m not gonna sit there and act as if I’ve done it before, because I haven’t.”
Terrell’s a most intriguing walk-on, because he has the highest profile of any of Maryland’s non-scholarship players. His most exciting moments might still come off the court, but he’ll probably get his chances at the end of a couple blowouts early.
His goals will be to hit another clutch three-pointer, then brings some renewed energy to the Andrew Terrell Show.
Our next subject is returning from a major injury.
