DECATUR, Ga. -- ESPN Watch List wide receiver Terry Googer (College Park, Ga./Woodward Academy) will need some heavy-duty bleach to get the grass, dirt and blood stains out of his white uniform after last Friday’s game against Cedar Grove (Ga.) High School. The 6-foot-4, 203-pound junior lined up at quarterback and was hit early and often. Sometime he was greeted in the backfield by a defender, but most often he would collide into a tackler 5 yards downfield on a rushing attempt. Cedar Grove had too many athletes for Woodward, and the ball with Googer seemed to be the only play that worked. So it was called. A lot. And Googer soldiered on.

At one point he was knocked out of the game, but he returned on the next series to run and throw, moving Woodward Academy down the field against one of the best defenses in the Peach State. That grit and tenacity has earned Googer offers from Notre Dame, South Carolina, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Wake Forest and Florida International. More are likely on the way.

When asked who he thought would offer next, Googer said, “Probably Florida, hopefully Georgia and I kind of want a Southern Cal offer. My family really likes Georgia. When I went to visit it seemed like a good place to spend my four years.”
