Basketball Adds First HS Commit from Cobb Since…2008?
Kennesaw State Basketball has gotten a commitment from PG Terrell Burden (2019) of Campbell HS in Smyrna. I believe he is the first scholarship commitment directly from Cobb County since Spencer Dixon in 2008. You all might remember former ASUN All-Conference player Travis Wallace (North Florida), who was also a product of Campbell High School 10 years ago!
@HoopSeenGA on Twitter (05/21/2019): Georgia Stars PG Terrell Burden is one of the best available players in the South’s 2019 class, says our @JustinDYoung. He has played great w/ the EYBL team this spring & should warrant a D1 opportunity right away. Burden could come in & play right away for a school this fall.
Trent Markwith of PrepHoopsGA on Twitter (05/12/2019): “I don’t understand why a regional D1 program hasn’t picked up Terrell Burden. He’s averaging 10.6 PPG on over 50% shooting in 8 EYBL games. Dynamic ball-handler who plays much bigger than his 5’9 height. He’s also an exceptional athlete who’s adept at both scoring & distributing.”
HoopSeen: Second Team AAAAAAA All- State as a senior.
Kyle Sandy on Twitter (12/09/2018): “Playing in the toughest region in the state talent-wise, the best PG in Region 2-7A is @Terrell_Burden3 Unsigned 5-9 playmaker did it again, exploding for 39 points the night after logging 40 minutes in 2OT. A LM D-I level recruit that scores all over. 3.4 GPA/1050 SAT
HoopSeen (11/18/2018): “I’ve heard a lot Terrell Burden in recent month and I must say he didn’t disappoint in the slightest. From dazzling finishes to points from the outside, Burden scored in a way that can be replicated on a nightly basis. Some guards of Burden’s stature often struggle in traffic or to find ways to produce inside the arc. Despite making several threes throughout the night, it was Burdens play in traffic that often yielded the best results. Quick bursts of in and outs and low hanging crossovers helped the Campbell guard separate from the first defender, only to then craft together a finish at the rim. A game winning shot was a fitting way to end a game in which he poured in 28 points. By seasons end he’s a player that could crack the top 10 list of GHSA scorers.”
