LOGAN, Utah – Utah State head men’s basketball coach Danny Sprinkle announced the signing of Terrence Hill Jr. (Portland, Oregon/Roosevelt High School) and Kase Wynott (Winchester, Idaho/Lapwai High School) on Wednesday.
Hill, a 6-foot-3 point guard, prepped at both Roosevelt High School and AZ Compass Prep. He was named second-team all-state and first-team all-league as a sophomore after helping lead Roosevelt HS to a 22-8 record and sixth-place finish at state.
“Terrence and his parents are a tremendous addition to the Aggie family,” Sprinkle said. “He is one of the top point guards in the country and will make an immediate impact in our program. He is a tremendous passer and ball handler with great size at 6’3. Along with being a great passer he has the ability to score 30 points and can really change a game offensively. He will give us flexibility as he can play alongside other point guards with his ability to score and create. I would not be surprised if he receives national awards at the end of the season, as I see him as one of the best point guards in the entire country. I also want to credit his high school coach Jamarr Lawson, who has spent countless hours and done a terrific job developing him into the player he is.”
Wynott, a 6-foot-6 wing, is a three-year letterwinner at Lapwai (Idaho) High School, where he averaged 35.4 points, 14.7 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 3.3 blocks and 3.1 steals per game as a senior. He is a three-time first-team all-state honoree, two-time Player of the Year, three-time first-team all-district, three-time Avista Tournament Championship MVP and two-time district Player of the Year. He helped lead Lapwai HS to two state championship titles, along with one runner-up finish.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Kase and his parents to the Aggie Family,” Sprinkle said. “He is a perfect fit on and off the court for our program. We have been recruiting Kase hard for three years and can’t wait to watch him knock down 3s in front the of the best student section and fans in all of college basketball. He is no doubt one of the best shooters we have seen the past couple summers on the recruiting trail and I know he is excited to uphold the standard of all the great shooters in Utah State history. He is an absolute gym rat who has an immense amount of pride in how he plays and how he competes. Unless something crazy something happens this season, he is on the path to become the all-time leading scorer in Idaho boys basketball history.”
