Kur Teng is tracking as one of the top 2024 shooting guards in the country. The 6-foot-4 Teng had another standout season for Haverhill (MA) Bradford Christian.
“I score the ball,” Teng told On3. “I come off screens and make reads, whether to pull up or get to the rim. I like how Devin Booker plays, the way he scores the ball and still plays within his team.”
He played in April on the Adidas 3SSB circuit with the Rivals Nation 17u team. On3 caught up with Kur Teng to discuss which schools prioritized him.
“I have offers from Providence, Rutgers, Auburn, Washington State, Clemson, and some more. I’ve visited Providence and Rutgers. We are probably hearing the most from Providence right now; Auburn is my most recent offer.”
Teng talks recruitment
Auburn: “They were number one for most of last year, which is definitely a good school. I am still getting to know them, but I know they play in the SEC, and they play hard.”
Rutgers: “They tell me they like my game, and I fit the type of wings they have. Their facility was great, and they go hard during their practices.”
Providence: “They were the top school in the Big East last year, so they are a good school. I like how they play with their guards; they get them moving and coming off screens to get buckets. They play through their bigs too.”
Cincinnati: “I played really well during the first live period. Afterward, they gave us a call and told me they were really interested and offered me. I haven’t been able to really look into them, but I am definitely excited to learn more about what they got going.”
“I want to win,” Teng said. ” Go to a school that wins games. I want to go to a school that lets me play my game, create some for my teammates, and score the ball.”
“We are kind of a basketball family,” Teng said. “My brother plays at Westfield State and my sister at Salem State. They’re both D-III schools in Massachusetts.”
