Tramel Terry visits Athens, talks recruiting

2/26/2012

Tramel Terry (Goose Creek, S.C.) is one of the nation’s most coveted wide receivers. Last summer after Georgia’s Dawg Night summer camp he committed to Mark Richt and the Bulldogs. Shortly after, he backed off that pledge.

“I just did it too soon,” Terry said. “I wanted to look around just to be sure. I wanted to be sure that’s what I wanted to do. It just wasn’t fair to Georgia or me. Right now, I would consider myself open to Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson and Florida.”

This past weekend Terry traveled to Athens once again and visited Georgia unofficially.

“Georgia is a place where I really love the environment," he said. "That’s the main thing and I had fun there once again. I hung out with Keith Marshall, Malcolm Mitchell and Corey Moore. I really hit it off with those guys. I also spent a lot of time with coach [John] Lilly. He’s a good guy all the way around.”

Terry’s teammate, defensive end Jalen Stevens, also visited Georgia.

“They are recruiting Jalen,” Terry said. “But Georgia has not offered him yet. They want to keep evaluating him.”

Terry, 6-foot-0 and 190 pounds, has already visited South Carolina for an earlier junior day. He likes what he sees in Columbia.

“It’s a place where I also feel comfortable,” Terry said. “They need playmakers right now, guys they can get the ball too. So I will continue to look at that with them. It’s a wide receiver friendly offense.”

Next weekend he plans on seeing Clemson once again.

“I have been there now four or five times,” Terry said. “I love the people there. They are so genuine. The family atmosphere there at Clemson is probably the biggest thing I like about them.”

Terry doesn’t believe he will visit the Gators this spring. But he hopes to get down to Gainesville before he makes his decision.

“I think Florida is a place that I will try and see this summer.”

Last season was a very productive one for Terry. He rushed for over 800 yards and 10 scores and had over 800 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

“I am a physical receiver,” Terry said. “I am fast and just have the ability to make a lot of big plays.”

Terry says he plans on graduating in December and being an early enrollee. Will he therefore make another commitment sometime soon?

“I have a 3.5 GPA and that’s what I am thinking about doing,” Terry said. “As far as deciding I really don’t have a plan yet. I need to sit down with my coaches and figure it all out.”
