GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota men’s basketball head coach Brian Jones announced on Tuesday that former New Mexico State point guard Terrel de Rouen (Tare-el Duh-roo-en) has signed an athletics grant-in aid to play for his program. De Rouen spent three seasons with the Aggies and is seeking a waiver from the NCAA to be eligible for the 2014-15 season.

Originally from Las Cruces, N.M., the hometown product played six games as a true freshman for NMSU before an injury sidelined him for the remainder of his first collegiate season. He was a New Mexico all-state performer as a senior after leading Onate (Own-ya-tay) High School to a state title in 2011. He averaged 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists in guiding the Knights to a 20-4 record.

As a sophomore at NMSU, he played in 32 games, starting nine for a squad that won the WAC Tournament before falling to Saint Louis in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He averaged 5.6 ppg, 2.1 rpg and 1.8 apg for the Aggies that season.

“We are excited to welcome Terrel to our basketball family and get him started on this new journey,” Jones said. “He comes from a program that has had a lot of success in the WAC and has NCAA Tournament experience, so he brings that instant credibility of knowing what it takes to compete at that level consistently.

“As a player, Terrel is well-rounded and possesses the ability to score and make plays for others, while also being a tough-minded defender that can guard both on-and-off the ball at a high level.”

De Rouen suffered another season-ending injury prior to the 2013-14 campaign that prevented him from playing for the Aggies a year ago. The New Mexico native has a couple of connections to UND and the area as Jones worked with current NMSU associate head coach Paul Weir at the University of Iowa during the 2005-06 season and de Rouen’s mother, Lisa, was born in Fargo.
