At Goose Creek High School last week, the 5-foot-11, 173-pound wide receiver named those six for CUTigers.com.

"My top are--recruiting-wise--South Carolina, Georgia, Clemson, Georgia, Miami and Alabama," he said.

Terry, who will be listed as one of the top-five in-state players in the 2013 class, has visited only two college campuses. His lone Clemson visit came last fall was for the Miami game. He's visited South Carolina several times in the last two years.

The rising junior shared thoughts on each of the six schools that have piqued his interest.

Clemson: I really liked the atmosphere. That was real cool…the school, when you go up there, everything is clean. It's kind of neat how they've got everything in order. Andre Ellington, he's from down here, so it was kind of cool watching him. He scored most of their touchdowns. That was pretty cool.

South Carolina: They treated me like family, so I can go there anytime I want to, really. Marcus Lattimore and I, we're like best friends…[Since] my freshman year, and I think it was in November when they played Florida [in 2009]. That was my first game. After that, I've been going to all the home games. I've been to all the home games since Tennessee, last year.

Alabama: I've always liked Alabama. They're a real physical team like we are down here at Goose Creek. Coach Reedy, before our games, he always refers to Alabama and how physical they are. I'm a physical guy, so I've always wanted to be a part of that.

Miami: I like the city and everything. I haven't really been to the school yet. I'm trying to do that this summer. I like the way they play. They had that receiver, [Leonard] Hankerson, I actually saw him when they played Clemson. I was impressed.

Georgia: I grew up a Georgia fan. I love them, so I've got to keep them on top," he said. "I haven't really visited them, so I don't know what to expect. Hopefully, in the future, I'll be able to go there and try to decide. I'm a big A.J. Green fan.

Green, who's from nearby Summerville, was recently back in the area.

"My dad just tinted his car the other day. I kind of met him a little bit, talked to him. That was a about it," Terry said.

This spring, Clemson, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh have all stopped by Goose Creek to evaluate Terry.

Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Florida, East Carolina and UCF have already offered verbally. With his junior season on the horizon, more are to be expected.

Before then, Terry plans to have an active summer.

"I'm going to Florida to train with this dude named Rodney Blunt, who used to play [running back] at Clemson with coach Reedy," he said. "We're going to make some trips to Clemson and Auburn."

It's possible that he could make a commitment in the early portion of next year.

"If it gets crazy, I might commit after my junior year," Terry said. "I'm not sure. I'm going to talk to coach Reedy and my dad about it. For now, I'm just chilling out. I'm just cooling out and letting everything flow."

What will he be on the lookout for in the meantime?

"I want to see if it's a college town or in the middle of a city. I want to see how people interact with each other," Terry said.

As a sophomore, he caught 28 passes for 606 yards and five touchdowns, and added three more scores rushing. Terry also led the Gators with 12 kick returns for 303 yards.

This fall, he will play wide receiver, running back and defensive back.
