DB Terry Shankle Profile
Terry Shankle, one of the top defensive back prospects in North Carolina for the class of 2009, was one of dozens of prospects that visited Clemson last weekend for Junior Day.
"We toured the campus," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "We went to see Vickery Hall. They talked about the freshman year and how study hall is mandatory. They push you to be the best academically and athletically at Clemson."
What was the highlight of the visit for the top defensive back?
"We got to rub the rock and run down the hill. It felt good. It would be crazy to do that in front of 80,000 fans," replied Shankle.
The Tigers have not offered the South Stanly standout yet.
"They told me they are going to wait and see how I do this semester. Right now I have offers from South Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Alabama," said Shankle.
When asked about his current leader in the recruiting process, Shankle responded, "I don't have one yet. Everybody is the same.
"I will wait until after my senior season is over. Then I will take my official visits."
What will the top corner consider when selecting his college destination?
"I will look where I fit in the best. I will look at the academics because I want to make sure I graduate. I want to be able to trust my coach," replied Shankle.
Clemson assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Billy Napier is recruiting Shankle for the Tigers.
"I really like him. He is a cool person," said the star defender.
Last season, Shankle caught 49 passes for 957 yards and 12 touchdowns on offense. He also had 15 interceptions with four going back for touchdowns on defense and he returned three punts for touchdowns on special teams.
