"South Alabama started recruiting me in the spring of last year," Josh Terry recalled from his home in Fort Payne, (Ala.).
"I first talked to Coach Bill Clark after he had talked to my coach about me. He turned my recruitment over to Coach John Turner. I really like Coach Turner, he is a good guy. He is the guards and centers coach at South Alabama," Terry explained.
Terry tells JagsJungle.com why he become a Jaguar.
"I went down there for an unofficial visit about four weeks ago, and I met with coaches Joey Jones, Bill Clark, John Turner and Coach Les Koenning. I liked all of them. They made me feel at home. They have a family atmosphere down there that I really liked."
"I love the location – it is close to the beach. The coaches are like family, they know all about the little lessons of life, and they will be there to teach you those things along with football."
While South Alabama has a lot to offer a young player Terry's final decision came down to education.
"The biggest thing is the Engineering School at South Alabama. Education has always been the most important thing as far as I'm concerned, and South Alabama had what I was looking for. I have always wanted to be an Engineer and I will have that opportunity at South Alabama," Terry exclaimed.
JagsJungle.com also asked Josh Terry about his strengths on the grid iron.
"I would probably say my pass blocking, but I love to come off the ball and hit somebody. The most fun thing in the world is to pull and crack on a defender. I really enjoy that," Terry stated.
Josh Terry has not set up an official visit to South Alabama, but plans to do so after Fort Payne ends their season.
Fort Payne will meet traditional power, Russellville, in the opening round of the 5A state playoffs.
