Rebels still in hunt for 5 Star juco safety?

Terry Mixon (S, Grossmont College, CA) - The '05 & '06 GridWire 1st Team All-American selection opened his recruitment back up after the Arizona State staff was let go.He proceeded to commit to California after his official visit there in December but his recruitment is not over.

"I am still leaving my options open," commented Terry Mixon. "I am still looking around. I am going to do some more research and take some visits and see what else is out there."

Any particular schools in mind?

"I am going to visit Washington State (1/12) and Arizona (1/19). I was suppose to visit Ole Miss this weekend but they quit calling me after I committed to California. I guess you can say they backed off. Tennessee quit calling me too. Arizona State still calls, but I do not think I am going to school there. I hope I get some more looks. I am going to send out some more highlight tapes and hopefully some schools will start back calling."

Terry was hoping to graduate in December but it will be May before he gets out.

"I was a little short, but I will be out in May for sure."

Terry's brother played for California this past season and is appealing to the NCAA for a 6th year of eligibility.

"He should hear something back in February, but he is not banking on gaining an extra year. That is one of the reasons I want to do some more research on the schools I am looking at."

One thing California does provide is an outstanding education and that factor has not gone unnoticed by Terry.

"That played a big role in my commitment. You have to look out for yourself after football is over. Their academics are nice and there is no guarantee that you will make money in this game."

Terry claims 90 solo tackles, 3 for losses, 3 fumble recoveries, 2 sacks, and 6 batted down balls during his sophomore campaign.
