Terry Earns Scholarship

Putnam Science Academy post-graduate forward Jalen Terry made a verbal commitment to Fort Lewis College on Wednesday, spurning division I offers to head to the division II school in Colorado.

The Alaskan native became a local YouTube sensation long before ever arriving in New England as Ballas TV revealed an athletic six-foot-seven forward from Alaska who was also an outstanding three-point shooter.  Here’s a look back at the highlight reel that generated so much excitement:

Terry arrived in the northeast just in time for the summer, suiting up for the Westchester Hawks just in time for the July evaluation period, and giving fans and college coaches alike a glimpse of the player they had come to know on video.  

Since then, Terry has been a critical component of a Putnam Science team that is in the midst of the most successful season in school history as they prepare for their first appearance in next week’s National Prep Championship

Terry becomes the sixth member of this year’s PSA team to earn an athletic scholarship as he joins Chaise Daniels (Quinnipiac), Jordan Butler (Norfolk State), Anthony Durham (Rider), Danny Upchurch, and Kyle Menard (Pace).
