Impressions of Larrier, Walker Update, Bullock Mix

Terry Larrier was not a well known name heading into last summer’s PC Elite camp, but by the end of the day had attracted the attention of the Providence coaching staff. The Bronx native looked to be more athlete than polished player last summer, but with his length (6’7) and athleticism he was certainly someone to keep an eye on going forward.

Reports are that Providence has offered the class of 2014 forward who is being labeled one of the breakout players of the early AAU season.

Here’s what I wrote about him upon first view last summer:

Playing for the top 16U AAU team in the country in Team Scan, 2014 combo forward Terry Larrier may slide under the radar a bit when playing alongside names like Chris McCullough and Conrad Chambers, but he certainly caught the eye on Saturday afternoon at the Providence Elite Camp.

I hadn’t seen Larrier previously and it took some digging after the camp to find out who the bouncy 6’7-6’8ish athlete was who looked tremendous in the speed and agility drills early in the camp.  Larrier is a Bronx native who ESPN lists at 6’6, but he looked, and played, a lot longer than that on Saturday, seemingly catching the attention of the Providence staff.  In a camp with the upwards of 80 young men, he really stood out during those agility drills, yet how he’d look once he stepped into five on five competition was a another question, and he accounted for himself well – knocking down a somewhat unorthodox looking jumper with some consistency, putting the ball on the floor well for a forward and using his fine athleticism to his advantage.

He’s a long limbed wing with terrific athleticism.

Providence is also in the final four of Detroit shooting guard Martez Walker. The Friars have been listed with Walker for quite some time now, and he’s down to PC, Texas, Temple and Oakland. The lefty is a member of the class of 2013.

Here’s the update from the Detroit News.

Here are recently release highlights of Providence signee Rodney Bullock, who will be a freshman at PC next season.
