Bulls After Another Glades Central Player

Having already received a verbal committment from runningback Aston Samuels, the Bulls are now going after defensive back Jeremy Terry. He talks with USFnation.com about the 5 schools he's interested in, his upcoming visit and the opportunity to play along side his current teammate.

Glade Central High School is no stranger to USF. There are already 4 players on the current roster from Glades; John Miller, D'Juan Brown, Jesse Hester Jr. and Woody George. Also add to that high school senior Aston Samuels, who committed to the Bulls two weeks ago. However, USF is not finished searching for talent at Glade Central. This time they are after LB/S Jeremy Terry. Last season the 6-foot-1 and 200 pound athlete played linebacker, but this year he made the move to safety. With a 4.5 40 time and the ability to hit like a linebacker, it makes him an intimidating player in the defensive backfield.

Now that signing day is approaching Terry has narrowed his focus to 5 schools. In no order they are Kansas, South Florida, NC State, South Carolina and Alabama. Of those schools he was supposed to take a visit to Kansas but he had to cancel, and he has one set for January 27th at USF. He says he may take one or two more, but as of now has nothing set up.

As for USF, Terry has seen first hand what they have to offer.

"I was there for a home game against FAMU." Adding, "I had a chance to see them play in-person and got a good feel of what the program is all about. I have talked with the defensive coaches and I know some of the schemes they run are similar to what I'm used to in high school."

Terry usually talks with defensive line coach Earl Lane about once a week. He says the most important factor in his decision will be the family atmosphere of the team.

"I have to feel like I fit in and am part of the family."

Another factor that could play into his decision would be the opportunity to play along side current Glade Central teammate Aston Samuels who has already committed to the Bulls.

"Aston and I grew up together and have been playing together before we even came to high school. I would definitely like to play along side him on the college level."

Terry says he will wait until his visits are finished to make a decision, but the hard-hitting safety sure seems to be leaning USF's way. We will keep you updated on what Jeremy thought of his visit and if he schedules any others.
