@Trealo_G: @PaulBiancardi what u think about Brandon Jennings younger brother Terrance Phillips as a prospect I think he a mid-major PG #askcoachB

Currently a junior, Terrence Phillips was inserted into the starting line up this season when Shelton Mitchell went down with an injury.

Phillips led his team to a No. 6 seed in the Dick's Sporting Goods High School National Tournament. I like Phillips' quickness in the open floor and his ability to drive and kick in the half court. He needs to become better at scoring, especially at making open 3-pointers.

Right now his recruiting interest is coming more from the mid-majors. He lives in Atlanta, and Georgia State has been on him hard. Virginia Tech was interested before its recent coaching change. At this point he is a mid-major point guard with the ability to play high-major basketball if the jump shot and decision-making improve. He does bring energy, which coaches love.
