Terry Talks Signing

Lacking from Wake Forest's offense in recent years is a big, tall receiving threat who can grab jump balls while also stretching the field vertically. The Demon Deacon coaching staff expects that to change in the upcoming years as Wake Forest have added 6'5 receiver Brandon Terry to their arsenal.

Brandon Terry, a native of Alpharetta, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, is a player who can be a big-time threat in the red-zone while pulling in ‘up for grabs' balls downfield for the Demon Deacons. At 6'5, 195-pounds with reliable hands, Terry has the physical tools to be a big-time college receiver.

Terry earned offers from Georgia Tech, Iowa, Tulane, Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin, UConn, and others before deciding on Wake Forest. But it wasn't football that brought Terry to first visit Wake Forest. Instead, it was another sport – track.

"Actually the track coaches at Wake recruited me first," Terry said. "I went up there for a visit and the football coaches recruited me hard." Although Terry loves track as well, his first focus will be on football – and then, potentially, track. "The football coaches said it was best not to do track the first year, but after that we will see," said Terry who currently participates in the 200, 400, and long jump in addition to relays.

Despite overtures from schools around the country, it was the Wake Forest football and academic programs that brought Terry to sign with Wake Forest. "I decided to go to Wake Forest because when I got up there, I could see myself going there," he said. "I really liked all the coaches. It's a nice campus and nice area. It felt like home up there. I think it's a good mix between athletics and academics and when I went on my official, I met the players and they're all guys I could see myself being friends with."

Terry will join that group of players this summer as he will enroll for the second summer session. "I'l get there this summer and get going," Terry noted. "Iwant to play next year so I want to get accustomed to it. Coach Grobe likes to redshirt players, but if I put in the work, I have a chance. They're looking for a big receiver. I'm hoping to make the field and make an impact immediately."
