Early life[edit]

Rozier was born in Youngstown, Ohio in 1994. His father, Terry Rozier Sr., was imprisoned for 8 years starting two months after Rozier was born. Then, in 2005, after participating in a robbery in 2003,[1] Rozier Sr. was sentenced to 13 years for kidnapping, robbery, and involuntary manslaughter. As a result, Rozier was raised primarily by his mother, Gina Tucker, and his grandmother, Amanda Tucker.[2]

Rozier starred at Shaker Heights High School in Shaker Heights, Ohio, graduating in 2012. In his senior year, he averaged 25.6 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 4.7 steals, leading Shaker to a 21–3 record and taking them to the regional semifinal in 2012 for the first time since 2002. He was an All-Lake Erie League player for three years and was rated 74th overall in the 2012 ESPNU Top 100 players.[3]

Due to grades, Rozier played for Hargrave Military Academy for a year before joining Louisville.[4] In his 2012–13 season at Hargrave, Rozier averaged 29.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 5.6 assists and earned the 2012 Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic MVP and second in the dunk and three-point contests while the team went 38–8.[5]

College career[edit]

As a freshman at Louisville in 2013–14, Rozier averaged 7.0 points and 3.1 rebounds in 37 games, and made the AAC All-Rookie Team. As a sophomore in 2014–15, Rozier led the Cardinals in scoring with 17.1 points per game, and was named second-team All-ACC.[6][7] On March 30, 2015, Rozier and Louisville teammate Montrezl Harrell declared for the 2015 NBA draft.[8]
