Terrah Jerrod Mustaf (born October 28, 1969) is a retired American professional basketball player.

Mustaf played at DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Maryland. He was one of the most heavily recruited players in his senior year, and went on to play collegiately at the University of Maryland.

After being selected by the New York Knicks in the first round, 17th overall, in the 1990 NBA Draft, Mustaf played in the NBA from 1990 to 1994 with the Knicks and the Phoenix Suns,[1] after which he played professionally in Europe. He retired in 2001, last playing with Altay Kartal Makarna of the Turkish Basketball League.

During his last season of play with the Suns, Mustaf was named a potential suspect for the murder of his then-girlfriend Althea Hayes.[2] Charges for the murder would eventually be dropped as his cousin, LeVonnie Wooten, would end up being named guilty for the crime.

Mustaf is the chief executive officer and president of Street Basketball Association based in Mitchellville, Maryland. He is the sports ambassador for Gambia, consultant for the Nigerian national basketball league, vice-president of the Take Charge Juvenile Diversion Program and director of Jerrod Mustaf Basketball Academy. He was also a three-time Parade All American (along with Shawn Kemp and Alonzo Mourning). He participated in the Capital Classic and McDonald's All-Star Games.
