OSU Instant Impact: Terry McLaurin

Another of the members of the Ohio State 2014 recruiting class has faxed his letter of intent to the Buckeye coaching staff. Terry McLaurin is officially a Buckeye.

Terry McLaurin

SCHOOL: Indianapolis Cathedral

SIZE: 6-foot, 185-pounds

POSITION: Wide receiver


POSITION RANKING: Number-43 wide receiver

SCOUTING REPORT: Speed is the name of the game with McLaurin. He has legitimate ability to get behind defenses and when he gets a crease in the open field, he can hit and outrun would-be tacklers. He's more of a straight line speedster than a shifty elusive guy, but he's still dangerous when it comes to open space, both as a receiver and return man. He's a very smart kid who understands defenses and how to get open. He's also a tireless worker who has improved his route running and consistency catching the football. At Ohio State's camp, we saw him put to the test in drills and he completed each with flying colors.

WHY Ohio STATE: "First and foremost, all three schools were worthy in my opinion. That's why they were in my top three, but the second time I went back to Ohio State to earn a scholarship and the chance to be great, the success they had just last year and what they were promising in the future was something I couldn't pass up at the end of the day. At the end of the day, I can only choose one school, but the chance to push myself to the highest limit, reach my highest potential athletically, academically, and play for Coach Meyer was a heck of an opportunity."
