Golden sets two visits

NC State is in the mix for one of the top recievers in Virginia. TSW caught up with Terrell Golden to talk about his recruitment and his first two December visits.

Terrell Golden (6'4" 200 WR) is a versatile athlete who has played several positions during his high school career. In an interview with, the Lake Taylor High School player described his position; "I played some wide receiver, tight end, linebacker, free safety, punter, and kicker," said Golden. "Did you want to know about the long snapping and holding too?" While he may be all that and more in high school, he plans on scaling back in college, concentrating on his skills at wide receiver.

I saw Terrell during the summer Nike camp in Chapel Hill and from what I saw, he has the potential to be the best WR on the next level. While Mike Mason and Damien Linson caught the eyes of most at Nike, I came away having Golden as my #1 WR on that day. The thing that Terrell has is huge hands and a tall 6'4" body, which set him apart from the other two. He runs clean routes and while he may not be as fast as some, he is a huge target that QBs will love to throw at.

Golden has his college list down to five schools. Penn State, NC State, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Maryland are all in the hunt. It has been reported by that Virginia Tech and Penn State currently lead for the Norfolk, Virginia player. We asked Terrell if this was still the case; "Penn State and Virginia Tech are at the top of my list. They are ahead because of the way they have recruited me," said Golden.

Terrell has lined up two visits to his leaders. He will check out University Park the first week in December while visiting Blacksburg the following week.

TSW asked Terrell what it was about these two schools that set them apart from the rest. "I like Penn State because of tradition and the fact that when I went up there the team does everything together. Virginia Tech had a great recruiting class last year. I like competition and they have that at wide receiver."

While the Hokies and Nittany Lions may currently lead, Golden still has plans to visit the underdogs. "I plan on visiting the other schools as well. I want to take all the visits before I decide."

Lake Taylor currently has a record of six wins and two losses. The record has them tied for second place in their conference with a chance to make the play-offs. "If we win our next two games, we will make the play-offs," said Terrell. "I have 18 catches for 432 yards and 5 touchdowns. On defense, I don't know how many tackles I have, but I do know I have six sacks, one interception and a fumble recovery for a touchdown."
