Terry Henderson joins Mountaineer class

10/24/2011

Raleigh, N.C. shooting guard Terry Henderson announced his decision on Monday that he will play for Bob Huggins and West Virginia. The 6-foot-4 Henderson had narrowed his choices to the Mountaineers, Rutgers, Richmond, Virginia Tech and George Mason.

ESPN.com's Paul Biancardi talks about this sharpshooter's game.

"Terry possesses a natural sweet stroke which emphasizes a high release and good rotation," Biancardi said. "The range on his long distance jumper makes a defense extend out beyond the 3 point line. He understands the concept of moving without the ball to free himself for open looks.

Biancardi on how he will fit in Morgantown:

"He'll fit quite well in their motion offense, where players are constantly screening to free each other up for layups or jumpers. In any ball screening action, you will not be able to leave him and help because he's too good of a shooter. Against any zone defense he will be an automatic threat.

"WVU landed a terrific shooter with size that with time and a strength program will flourish over the course of time," Biancardi added.
