Red Zone Warrior

At 6'6 195 pounds, Terrence Casper is coming on as one of the top 5 wide receiver prospects in the state of New Jersey. His dominant size is matched by his uncanny ability to locate the football at its highest point and come down with it. This rare gift makes Casper an intriguing regional prospect, being that you don't have to make the perfect throw in order to get the ball to him.

The Camden Catholic (NJ) product definitely knows how to utilize his uncanny size advantage. "I am aggressive and attack the football. If it's anywhere near me, it's mine. I make things happen in the open field, but am more of a third down and red zone receiver". His argument of being a red zone receiver is supported by his 8 touchdowns out of 25 receptions meaning he catches a touchdown per every 3 catches made. Casper plays within himself and would be a tremendous asset to any program with a vertical attack.

He is receiving attention from Rutgers, Miami, UCONN, Ohio St. and Tennessee. Casper has no offers at this time, but Rutgers has been coming on strong. His three favorites are currently Rutgers, Miami and Ohio St. We will have to wait a while for a final decision being that he claims he is just taking it all in right now.

As for his feelings on Rutgers specifically, he stated, "I like Rutgers. I like Schiano and the coaching staff. I like the way the program is looking up for the future. I have been to campus 5 times… once for the Fresno St. game, once for Jr. Day, another time for the Big Time Showcase and twice for 7-on-7's". Speed had been a concern for the talented wide receiver, but Casper claims that speed is a non-issue. " I ran a 4.6 forty at the Big Time Showcase at Rutgers", Casper said. Being that he has aspirations to play receiver at the next level, that speed will definitely come in handy.

Casper also feels he could be highly effective at safety. He finished the 2008 season with 5 interceptions and multiple pass breakups as well. We will keep you posted on his recruitment.
