What I liked most out of the state’s #3 prospect East St. Louis small forward Terrence Hargrove in his debut with Brad Beal Elite was how he stuck to what he does best. At times he has drifted to the perimeter trying to show people how his shot has improved (which it has), but he forgets to do what makes him special. Be a high energy forward with elite hops that outworks everyone. He did that at Swish N Dish with a variety of scores in the paint on put backs and quick moves around the hoop. He was solid, but not spectacular throughout the weekend. Hargrove is a high-major minus/mid-major plus kid.
Hargrove discussed his season at East St. Louis.
“My junior year went good despite all the coaching changes that we had. I still finished out a good junior year and hopefully come out next year stronger.”
Where did he see the biggest growth in his game?
“My jump shot and handles have really picked up. I am starting to figure out who I am as a player.”
This spring he is playing with Brad Beal Elite on the Nike EYBL circuit and is ready for the big stage.
“Playing against the best of the best and letting me know what I need to work on as a player. Hanging around with people from all over. Getting to know my teammates and bonding with them.”
What schools have offered?
“Cleveland State, New Mexico, St. Louis, Missouri, and Illinois State.”
He talked about schools he would like to visit this spring.
“I want to get out to Cleveland State. I have already seen Mizzou, St. Louis, and Illinois State. I have seen most of the schools that have offered except Cleveland State and New Mexico.”
