Lineman Looking for An Edge On Competition

Big lineman Terence Edge talks about his performance at the Combine in Atlanta.

Atlanta, Ga.--There were many players who came to Saturday's Combine at Georgia Tech and performed up to expectations, but there were also players who were relatively unknown coming into the event who raised their stock for recruiting purposes.

One of those players is offensive lineman Terence Edge from Tri-Cities High.

Having a big body doesn't necessarily equate to a player being a good offensive lineman, but at 6-4, 266 Edge has all the tools to go along with that size and the total package is one of the top up and coming linemen in Georgia this year. Saturday he showed good footwork and quickness in one-on-one drills after testing well. He says that the experience was a good one for him as he's trying to make a name for himself in recruiting circles.

"I think it's like a growing process for me," Edge tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I'm just doing some stuff that I need to work on. I came out here to have fun. It was better than I thought it would be. There was a lot of competition and way better than I thought it would be coming in."

There were many impressive times ran Saturday in the 40-yard dash. While you had the usual suspects break into the 4.5 time or lower, perhaps the most impressive of the day came from Edge. At 266 pounds he ran a 4.81. It was easily the fastest time for anyone of his size at the combine and he says that it's definitely his best career time.

"That's my best ever," Edge says. "I surprised myself that I did that good."

Edge runs a blistering time in the 40-yard dash.

A two-year starter at right tackle, Edge says that he's hearing from several colleges and two have jumped to the front for his services heading into the summer months. "Right now I'm hearing from Auburn, Middle Tennessee, Georgia Tech and Central Florida," Edge says. "I don't have any offers yet. My favorites are Auburn and Georgia Tech."

A player at the high school where current Tiger Tristan Davis was a standout performer, Edge says that he's always hearing about the Auburn program from the safety. He also had a chance to check out things last fall when his high school team came to relax at Auburn's indoor facility before a game against Robert E. Lee at Crampton Bowl in Montgomery.

"It seems like when I went down there they had good work habits," Edge says. "Their tempo is high and I like that. I like the way they were practicing."

Edge says that he plans to attend several camps this summer and hopes to be at one of Auburn's senior camps.
