Terry Davis is talented two-way at Wyoming High School in Ohio that's been having quite a spring. The 6-foot-4, 295 pound prospect is adding offers on a regular basis and is now up to a dozen offers.

"My spring is going great and it's been pretty exciting for me," said Davis. "All these schools coming in and meeting all these coaches has been a very good experience."

The 6-foot-4, 295 pound two-way prospect plays both offensive tackle and defensive tackle for Wyoming and likes playing both.

"I like defense, but it really doesn't matter where I play. I'm a big, athletic guy and I'm strong," said Davis. ""On offense I have good foot work and the ability to block the bigger guys, and on defense I have the ability to get off the block and get to the quarterback."

Programs have taking notice of the big tackle as he's been receiving plenty of interest and receiving offers including Ohio, Indiana, Louisville, Marshall, Kent State, Akron, Toledo, Ball State, FIU, Bowling Green, and most recently USF and Cincinnati.

"My big ones are from Indiana, Louisville, South Florida, and the University of Cincinnati," said Davis. "Those are the ones that are standing out to me right now."

Davis talks about the four schools standing out to him.

"I visited Indiana this spring and liked the atmosphere, the campus and I like the coaches. I haven't really seen Louisville so I plan on visiting them this summer. I've spoke to the USF coaches and they seem pretty cool and I plan on visiting there this summer. I've know Cincinnati since I was a sophomore and I'm going to go over there this week."

The two-way standout is being recruited mostly for offense, but is getting looks on the defensive line as well.

"I'm being recruited for both," said Davis. "UC is recruiting me 50/50 and it depends on how my body develops. Indiana wants me to come to camp as a DT, but my offer is for offensive line. The rest are for tackle."

Davis said he's been recruited by USF for several months and talks to both Coaches Peter Vaas and Steve Shankweiler.

"There recruiting me at offensive tackle and I talked the most with coach Vaas and just started talking with Coach Shankweiler. They both seem real cool. They said they looking forward to getting me down there to campus and talk with the rest of coaches," said Davis. "I'm definitely going to go down there and check them out this summer, and I'm looking forward to learning more about them."

As to when he'll be making his college choice, Davis said he doesn't plan on waiting until February.

"I plan on deciding probably either before my season begins or right at the end," said Davis. "I'll probably take or my officials but I'm really not sure just yet. I just want to focus on my senior season and on my team."

The talented prospect does know what he's looking for in a program.

"Academics are probably the biggest thing," said Davis. "Then playing time, team chemistry and how I interact with the team and the coaching staff."

In the classroom Davis carries a 2.8 GPA and took the SAT in May and is awaiting a test score. For now he's just enjoying the recruiting process.

"It's all very exciting and I'm just taking it all in right now," said Davis. "I can't wait to see these schools and hopefully make my decision this summer, finish out my senior season and then get ready to play college ball."
