Bella Vista Prep's ultra-talented 6-foot-7, 175-pound senior wing Terry Armstrong is our top true 2019 prospect in the class, and the athletic wing has generated loads of division-I interest for himself over the past year. This week, Armstrong trimmed his long recruiting list down to (10) schools.
With a long list of college suitors extending offers to him, Armstrong is now narrowing down his list of schools. After careful consideration, this week Armstrong released his list of schools he is considering to Michigan State, Arizona, Oregon, Florida State, Xavier, Arizona State, Oklahoma, Mississippi State, LSU and New Mexico.
With such a long list of scholarship offers on the table for himself, Armstrong has not indicated any leaders at this point in his recruitment. It is expected that Armstrong will take his official recruiting visits this fall before making his college decision.
Armstrong is among the top prospects in the country's 2019 class, and after a terrific junior season for the Bella Vista Prep program, he continued his strong play this spring and summer on the Nike EYBL circuit. Armstrong is a sure-fire high level talent for the future, and was one of the top overall prospects featured on the EYBL circuit while playing for his native club program from Detroit, Michigan - The Family. Armstrong's play was terrific and as exciting as ever, as he displayed his serious skill level, NBA level athleticism and a true knack for scoring the basketball.
Armstrong emerged at Bella Vista Prep this season, after relocating to the state from Flint, Michigan. A four-star college prospect by ESPN and numerous other scouting services nationally, Armstrong was a major piece for the success of the Bella Vista program last season, and will expect to have an even bigger year this season.
I will continue to follow the recruitment of Armstrong closely this fall, and bring you any recruiting updates as they continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Armstrong is a big-time wing prospect that once was rated among the Top 25 prospects nationally in Arizona's 2019 class. He is a long, ultra-athletic and bouncy wing prospect that plays well above the rim and has good overall versatility. He likes to handle the basketball in the open floor and make plays for himself and others off the dribble. He is especially gifted in the open floor where he is a threat to make plays above the rim, and over and around defenders. His superior length allows him to catch alley-oops passes and finish from almost anywhere on the floor. He has a very good handle of the basketball and is a solid passer, and is able to put of points in a hurry and is almost unguardable with the basketball in his hands. He has excellent range on his shot and is difficult to defend off the dribble as a result. An active rebounder, but he needs to focus more in this area. A solid defender. Plays passing lanes very well though. Has excellent potential for the future.
