The Cowboys are hoping to carry late-season momentum into the Big 12 Tournament.

There’s momentum for next season on the way, too.

Jared Terrell, a four-star guard form New Hampshire and a piece of OSU’s Top 20 recruiting class, was recently named MVP of the National Prep Championship, the national tournament for prep schools.

A 6-3 shooting guard, Terrell led his team, Brewster Academy, to the team title with an 88-77 win over St. Thomas More (Conn.) He scored 46 points in Brewster’s three-game run to the title, and according to Adam Finkelstein of, “utilized his trademark power to attack the rim, mixing in jumpers when he had to, while also providing energy and playmaking on the defensive end of the floor.”

Said Cowboys coach Travis Ford, who was there to witness Terrell’s play: “How about that? That’s not an easy thing to accomplish, with all the great players that are there. We were excited for him, very excited.”

Terrell had previously led Brewster to a New England Preparatory School Athletic Council championship.

“Jared’s just a competitor,” Brewster coach Jason Smith told “He’s tough, he’s hard-nosed, he competes and wants to win every time, no matter if it’s in practice. He just wants to win. He’s a competitive guy.”
