Terry is 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and ranked by Scout as the No. 21 outside linebacker in the country and No. 3 in Texas. The No. 233 overall rated 2016 prospect in the nation holds a total of 11 offers but has narrowed it down to nine leaders.
He said his top schools as of now are Baylor, Florida, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Texas Tech, UCLA, and USC. Texas Tech was the first to notice Terry’s talent and he said that is a huge factor.
The recent hire of South Oak Cliff’s head coach Emmitt Jones has had a big impact on Terry and what he thinks of the Red Raiders.
“(Texas Tech stands) where they have always been, right at the top with my other favorites,”
“To win the ways he has I have respect and love for that man,” Terry said. “If my decision comes down to my favorite coaching staff, my relationship with the coaches and the youthfulness of Tech’s coaches, it just may be the reason I put on a Guns Up hat.”
He went on to say that the coaching staff, the fact that his former head coach is now on the staff, players that want each other to be successful and their will to get back on the map in college football’s toughest conference is what sets Texas Tech apart from the other schools.
Terry got to witness that “will to get back on the map” while he was on his visit at a spring football practice Wednesday.
“I love the intensity of the players,” Terry said. “Its like they are putting the responsibility of bringing back Tech football to the top by pushing their brothers. I love that.”
While touring the facilities Terry said that he could imagine himself “working his butt off” in there and that it was one of the best he has seen. He added that the campus was nice and that Texas Tech really pushes education, which is important to his overall decision.
In all, Terry said everything he expected before coming to Lubbock was displayed and he felt like he was in a great environment.
