TEAM FRENJI ALUMNI 6’5 PF Terry Brutus exploded onto the scene when he transferred from NY to Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock, VA.
The small forward from Spring Valley, NY was in the final stages of his recruitment had has narrowed his extensive list down to four.
According to his former AAU coach and mentor, Mike Moore, Brutus is currently on an official visit. “He’s at Ole Miss right now and loving it down there,” Moore said.
As far as the four schools that Brutus has his sights set on, Moore said, “He’s down to Ole Miss, Illinois, Drake and Kent State.”
Moore said that Brutus would be taking an official visit to Illinois on Sunday and will be returning on Tuesday. “Right after that, he’ll probably make his decision,” said Moore who added that Brutus will not be visiting Kent State.
It turns out, Brutus will not be taking any more visits. “I’ve decided to go to Ole Miss,” said Brutus told NYCHoops.net exclusively by telephone on Friday at about 7pm EST while on campus. “I like the coaching staff and got a chance to hang out with the players.”

Moore added,”They want him to play the three or the four.”
Moore said that he’s delighted that Brutus transferred and reached his full potential under Massanutten head coach Chad Myers, opting to wait a year and go prep before making his college choice.
“I’m very proud of his decision,” said Moore saying that it was was his decision and nobody else’s.”
“One [previous high school] coach said he should go to a D-II school,” said Moore. “It’s been my feeling all along that Terry is a high major.”
Moore said that Brutus will be signing his LOI with the Rebels, “immediately.”
