Terran Petteway lists at least 10 schools that recruited him seriously, including Colorado, Oregon, Penn State, Houston and UTEP. Texas Tech was his first official visit, and he committed Sunday.
Jerald Temple remembers going to youth basketball games in Galveston a decade ago and seeing a kid, not much older than 5 years old, dribbling a ball in the concession stand line.
Then in the hallway, there he was again, still dribbling. And in the parking lot.
“I thought, ‘This kid could turn into something special,’ ” Temple said, “and here we are.”
The kid was Terran Petteway, son of the local AAU coach. Petteway grew up to become a three-year starter on Ball High School’s varsity basketball team and a Division I recruit.
