    • Bio

      Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Terrance and his family moved to Dallas, Texas where he attended Prime Prep Academy and joined the High School's basketball team under coach Ray Forsett.

      In 2012/2013 as a Freshman (9th grade) Terrance averaged 10 points per game and helped his team to a 38 and 2 record, the 2013 NACA Division I Tournament title, and the 2013 National High School Invitational semi-finals. He was named to the NACA All-Tournament Team and earned NACA Tournament MVP honors.

      In January 2015, half way through Terrance's Junior year (11th grade), Prime Prep Academy was forced to close its doors. In September 2015, Terrance entered in to his Senior year (12th grade) at a new school, Advanced Prep International and was ranked at number 10 on the ESPN top 100.

      In 2013, 2014 and 2105 Terrance represented the USA in the U16, U17 and U19 FIBA World Championships. Terrance played in every one of the international games and helped his teams go undefeated and win the Gold medal on each occasion.

      In April 2016 at the Nike Hoop Summit representing the USA in the Junior National Select Team, Terrance scored 21 points in one quarter hitting 7 of 7 shooting from beyond the arc. This secured him Nike Hoop Summit MVP Honors and broke the record for number of threes made in a game.

      Terrance was approached by The Dream Basketball Academy at the Nike Hoop Summit where he was offered a unique opportunity that would see him skip College and play professionally overseas for the Adelaide 36ers in the Australian National Basketball League (NBL). This deal was finalised a few months later and Terrance made his NBL debut on October 7, 2016 just shy of 18 years and 5 months of age, making him the league's youngest import ever.

      With the benefit of the Academy's tailored development program, Terrance became an integral contributor to the Adelaide 36ers 2016 - 2017 season success, when they finished top of the Australian National Basketball League minor round season. At season's end, he was awarded Dunk of the Year.

      Returning to the United States to finalise preparation for the 2017 National Basketball Association Draft, he was selected in the First Round of the Draft at pick 21 by the Oklahoma City Thunder to commence his NBA career. This is a strong vindication of the Academy's model and program.
