He will follow a 2019 UA recruiting class that was led by McDonald’s All-American guards Nico Mannion of Phoenix Pinnacle and Josh Green of Florida’s IMG Academy.

Terry, who began his prep career at Tempe Corona del Sol, averaged 11.2 assists last  season as a junior for Hillcrest during its national high school season. He played for Compton Magic in the AAU circuit.

Weaver says he plays point guard for Hillcrest with a 7-feet, 1-inch wing span.

“Dalen is an amazing young man and leader,” Weaver said. “He is the most unselfish player I have ever been around. He has all the tools to be a pro.”
