Arizona Recruit Dalen Terry Shows He’s Been Wildcat Fan Since Young Age

Arizona’s Class of 2020 recruit Dalen Terry, a four-star small forward from Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, tweeted today comparison photos of him wearing Wildcat garb from a young age until now.

Terry’s younger photo looks like he is about 10 and the other photo shows him in an Arizona uniform.

He is an incoming 6-foot-8, 190-pound freshman from Tempe who is rated a four-star player by He averaged 15.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 8.8 assists per game, 3.1 steals and 2.1 blocks per game this season at Hillcrest.

His tweet reads: “lol see you soon tuscon!!” Perhaps it was just a mistaken misspelling of Tucson. If not, he will soon learn the correct spelling of where he will call home starting this summer.

247Sports’ assessment of Terry’s skills: Good size and very long arms. Still physically immature with plenty of room to add strength. Best asset is his passing ability; outstanding vision for positions. Extremely versatile wing. Respectable ball skills and can be at least a secondary ball handler but likely most effective as a playmaking wing. Better shooter from mid-range than three. Capable finisher due to size and length. Has physical tools to guard multiple positions. Lot of upside here; if continues to improve as shooter and ball handler has easy NBA upside but worst case should be a high-major starter.

Assistant coach Justin Gainey was the primary recruiter for Terry, who played at Tempe Corona del Sol before transferring to Hillcrest last season.
