Tall receiver has lengthy offer list
At the recent University of Tennessee camp, some elite prospects were in attendance but wide receiver Brandon Terry was head and shoulders above the rest - literally. The 6-foot-6 wide receiver made an impression on the day by creating major mismatches on the outside and using his 4.5 speed to become a major vertical threat on the outside.
Though Terry left Knoxville without a Tennessee offer, the lengthy wideout has already picked up plenty of options throughout the spring. Currently his list of offers includes Wisconsin, UConn, Tulane, Purdue, Indiana, Mississippi State, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan.
"My first one was UConn and I think that was around March," Terry said. "I think about Wisconsin being my number one choice out of the offers so far and then probably Indiana and Purdue."
Terry has seen numerous college coaches filter through his Alpharetta High School halls. Not only are coaches coming to see him, but they are also keeping an eye on his teammate Michael Bennett who lines up alongside him at wide receiver. Bennett also has a long list of offers and with the two of them on the field together, Terry has a lot of confidence in his offense.
"It's awesome," he said of playing with Bennett. "We're going to be unstoppable this year. No one is going to be able to shut us down
Having him out there, it gets us better all the time. One the field we're always competing."
Along with the Tennessee camp, Terry is working hard at other venues trying to earn more scholarship offers from around the Southeast. Recently, Terry impressed in Gainesville at Florida's camp. With a strong performance there - including a 4.54 40 time - Terry is hoping that Florida, along with some other programs still may issue an offer.
"I was really hoping for Florida to offer and I have to call their coach back and see how they evaluated me," he said. "I really wanted to go to Georgia too and stay close to home."
Other offers that Terry is targeting are North Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Already with camps at Florida and Tennessee under his belt, Terry next plans on tripping to Georgia on Saturday followed by North Carolina and possibly Vanderbilt.
