Four-star Athlete Visiting Rutgers Friday

A four-star prospect from Virginia says he will make an unofficial visit to Rutgers on Friday. The 5-foot-9, 165-pound high school quarterback is being recruited to play slot receiver for the Scarlet Knights. He holds offers from a dozen schools, including Rutgers, which possesses a unique trait that caught piqued his interest.

Osbourn Park (Manassas, Va.) four-star prospect Dominique Terrell will be in New Jersey this weekend for the BadgerSports 7-on-7, presented by New Level Athletics.

And with the event on the Rutgers campus (although not staged by the school), it gives Terrell a chance to learn plenty more about one of his many suitors.

Rutgers is one of a dozen schools to offer Terrell, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound quarterback who will likely play slot receiver in college, and he said he is heading to the school for an unofficial visit.

"I'm coming up Friday to tour the campus,'' Terrell said. "I want to see what they have to offer, and where I'd be living at and playing at.''

One of Rutgers' main draws for Terrell is the Scarlet Knights' newly developed reputation for sending players to the NFL.

A year ago the Scarlet Knights had five players drafted, and in April there is a chance two former Scarlet Knights – offensive tackle Anthony Davis and cornerback Devin McCourty – will be drafted in the first round.

And that is something Terrell is well aware of.

"I know they put a lot of players in the NFL,'' he said, "I know ‘Rocket' (running back De'Antwan Williams from Woodbridge, Va.) goes there. I talk to him a couple of times.''

Terrell threw for more than 600 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior, but he made his biggest mark with his legs. In leading Osbourn Park to a 10-3 record, Terrell ran for more than 1,000 yards and six touchdowns.

It is expected he will play receiver in college, and he has a preference where he lines up.

"I prefer slot,'' he said. "I like the ball in my hands. I also like quarterback.''

Terrell recently attended junior days at Pittsburgh and West Virginia, both of whom offered scholarships.

He also has offers from Rutgers, Duke, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina State, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

"I think Oregon is close to offering, and Texas Tech,'' said Terrell, who indicated when he would trim his list. "I'm going to do that probably at this time in May.''
