Terry Rozier Is The Next Big Thing In Ohio Hoops

At least according to ESPN, which profiles the Louisville signee in the new issue of its high school magazine.

But Rozier had Louisville as his No. 1 school all along, so his commitment to Pitino was never in doubt.

"My dream is to get to the highest level, and he’s one of the best coaches in the country," says Rozier. "Why not take a chance with a coach like that?"

A year ago, it would’ve seemed like Pitino was the one taking the chance. Prior to that, Rozier wasn’t a top 100 recruit and Big East coaches were nowhere to be seen. It wasn’t for a lack of talent, though. Rozier poured in 20.2 points per game and ripped down 5.6 rebounds a contest as a junior. The main culprit was a lack of exposure.

"It was unfortunate his AAU team didn’t play the best competition in the country," says Young. "He was unknown. I kept thinking, ‘This kid is a high-major talent.’"

...

"We knew then we had something special," says Young. "We just threw him in there, and he went crazy."

Since then, Rozier has been an indispensable member of the squad. He emerged as the Raiders’ leading scorer last season, guiding the team to a berth in the Division I district quarterfinals. But for all his high school success, Rozier wasn’t getting the attention he deserved in the recruiting arena.

"He was slept on because of his AAU program," says Garfield Heights coach Sonny Johnson. "He can do multiple things and is not limited. I always thought he was the No. 1 point guard in the state."
