USC Basketball Recruiting: Trojans Land J.T. Terrell, Former Wake Forest Guard

The USC Trojans are going to have to shore up their losses quickly to avoid falling behind in the Pac-12 conference. They might have landed a top name on signing day for college basketball.

J.T. Terrell was one of the most talented players from the 2010 recruiting class, and he officially signed with the Trojans today. Terrell provides USC with potentially Kevin O'Neill's most talented wing player during his tenure as head coach of the Men of Troy. Terrell provides instant strength, explosion and shooting ability for a Trojans offense that has lacked it lately, and he could be the offensive weapon O'Neill has desperately needed to kickstart the team. Take a look at his highlight reel below.

Terrell is originally from Burlington, North Carolina, and committed to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons out of high school. But Terrell left the program after being sentenced for a DWI, and will be playing this season at Peninsula Junior College in Port Angeles, Washington, where he was recently ranked the top junior college recruit in this year's class. Here's hoping he gets off on the right path in the Galen Center and can be part of what's looking like a resurgence for the conference in 2012.
