Hogansville, Ga. – Junior cornerback Terry Godwin from Callaway High School, just an hour from Auburn University, is quickly becoming one of the more highly recruited prospects for the class of 2015, but he's in no hurry to make a decision.
"It's probably going to be the end of my 11th grade year or beginning of my 12th," Godwin said of a commitment time frame. "I'm going to be looking at academics and the coaching staff. I'll be looking at a school with Sports Management.
"At the next level hopefully I can play both sides and play a little bit of special teams," he added. "But I'll play wherever they put me. If they need me there, I'll play it."
Callaway head coach Pete Wiggins knows he has a gem on his hands who can help wherever needed.
"Terry is an extremely versatile player for us," Wiggins said. "He's a two-way player for us and he's been starting since he was a freshman. He's a shutdown corner on defense. We like to play him on offense too because he's so elusive with the ball in his hands. He has a bright future ahead of him."
At this point he claims no leader.
However, asked if he had any connections or friends at any colleges Godwin responded, "I've got Quan Bray at Auburn, but that's about it. He's a great family friend. I've been knowing him since he was here at Callaway."
Callaway boasts a load of junior and senior prospects including quarterback/athlete Tez Parks, linebacker and Georgia Tech commit KeShun Freeman, as well as several underclassmen like Eddie Culpepper and Lorenzo Patterson who could be high-level targets as they develop.
As far as offers for Godwin, at this point there are too many to keep up with.
"North Carolina, Ole Miss, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Vandy, Nebraska, Tennessee," he noted. "It's a couple. I've got offers from those schools, Arkansas, Florida, USC. That's all I can think of off the top of my head."
Callaway improved to 3-1 when Inside the Auburn Tigers was on hand to see Godwin and his teammates in a 39-14 win over Jackson. Jackson didn't challenge Godwin when he was in at cornerback, but Godwin was able to help the offense early including catching a long TD from Parks.
"I had a post route," Godwin explained, "but he scrambled so I came back to the ball. He saw me wide open and led me into the end zone. We've got a connection from over the past three years that I've been here."
