Top AZ Back Planning Visit to NU?

In 2003, Terry Longbons ran for 2,053 yards and averaged nine yards per carry, while scoring 28 touchdowns. In-state schools Arizona State and the University of Arizona are in the lead for this back with a unique blend of power and speed, but the door remains open for other contenders to grab the attention of the leading running back prospect in the state. Will he stay in-state, or does a school like Nebraska stand a chance at getting his commitment?

With 4.4 speed in the 40, and a bench press max of 365 pounds, Terry Longbons can blow by a defender in a flash. Or, he can hit them with a combination of speed and power that leaves them shaking the dust off. Describing himself as a "North/South runner who runs real hard, works hard, and gets along well with his teammates," Terry is getting the attention of a host of top programs. Currently rated as a four star recruit, Terry's 38 inch vertical jump is a testament to his athleticism.

While Arizona and Arizona State are the leaders, Terry did acknowledge that he is likely to visit several other top programs. At this point, he has attended one day camps at both in-state schools, and enjoyed each. One official visit will likely go to the University of Nebraska, along with UCLA and Notre Dame. Although he "probably will stay in-state," the Huskers are "sort of in consideration" at this stage. So, what would happen if he is blown away by what he sees on a visit to Nebraska, and finds it superior to the in-state offerings? "Nebraska… would be a good school to go to."
