2013 prospect Damion Terry is what scouts refer to as a “dual threat quarterback.” Often times, that means that a kid who should be playing WR or RB is playing QB because of his athletic skill. That’s not the case with Terry. The 6’4″ Erie, PA native is a QB, who uses his athleticism to supplement his quarterbacking skills.
Tuesday night, I had a chance to talk with the young man, whose recruiting is starting to heat up.
While he doesn’t yet hold an offer, he said that Michigan State seems close to offering and joked that some “blogger” from Nebraska reported that the Huskers had offered him, but he hasn’t received it. Starting this Saturday, Damion will visit four schools (WVU, OSU, PSU, MSU) in a 15 day period. It’s likely that he will end up with a few offers during that process. On top of the scheduled visit to PSU, he also hopes to get an invite to the Spring Game on April 21st. I asked him if he would consider committing on the spot if he received the right offer and he said not right away. He did not rule out the possibility of committing soon after though, saying he’d want to go home and talk it over.
Damion said the he’s looking for a school with “tradition, welcoming players/future teammates and strong academics.” He mentioned that his original recruiter was Mike McQueary, so I asked about his thoughts on the “situation” because I never really know what to call it. He said that it could affect his decision, but only as it pertains to the NCAA and any punishment that may come of it.
Terry told me that he is “getting used to this situation and is really enjoying the recruiting process.” He also added that the idea of playing for Bill O’Brien is intriguing, saying “it’s exciting, knowing that he has coached one of the best quarterbacks in history.”
