I have a strong feeling that a lot of college coaches are going to wonder where this guy came from when they see him play his sophomore year in college. Once he gets acclimated to college ball, he will be a standout.
Terrell has the speed (4.6) to run down most running backs. He is a sure tackler who has no fear throwing his body into a tackle. He is extremely hard to block. Maybe the best thing about him is his tremendous passion for the game. Just check out the end of almost any play and you'll see that passion. Although safety or linebacker is in the cards for him in college, he also played tight end and on the special teams for his high school team.
BTW, he's almost as good in the classroom as he is on the football field as evidenced by his 3.3+ GPA and 22 ACT scor. He plans on taking the ACT test again in the hope that he will make a 25 or better.
