Ole Miss Hoops Inks New York Forward

Terry Brutus signed a national letter of intent to join the Ole Miss Basketball program for the 2012-13 academic year, Ole Miss Head Coach Andy Kennedy announced, on Monday.

A native of Spring Valley, N.Y., Brutus rounds out the Rebels’ class of six signees, which also includes Jason Carter (Houston, Texas), Marshall Henderson (Hurst, Texas), Derrick Millinghaus (Schenectady, N.Y.), Martavious Newby (Memphis, Tenn.) and Anthony Perez-Cortesia (Cumana, Venezuela).

“We are pleased that Terry has chosen to join our program,” Kennedy said. “He is an explosive forward, with exceptional ball-skills. His versatility will allow him to contribute in a number of areas.”

Brutus, a 6’6”, 235-pound forward, attended Massanutten Military Academy (Va.) in 2011-12 and averaged 17 points and nine rebounds, while leading the Colonels to the eight-team National Prep Championships. His squad lost to eventual champion Brewster Academy (N.H.).

Named a three-star recruit by Rivals and ESPN.com, Brutus finished at Spring Valley High School, in his hometown, before enrolling at Massanutten for one year. He will have four years to play with the Rebels.
