6-0 ½, 182-pound wide receiver Patrick Terry impressed during last weekend’s 7-on-7 camp at the University of Virginia. But, as Halifax High School (South Boston, VA) offensive coordinator Stan Hodgin will tell you, he was already on the recruiting radar before his performance and currently boasts two official scholarship offers.

“He’s got official offers from Maryland and Duke,” Hodgin said. “From what we were told, there are also going to be offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and North Carolina.

“Patrick has impressed coaches as a result of last season’s performance.”

Terry played in a run-oriented offense his sophomore season in 2004. Last season, Hodgin implemented a pass-oriented system in which Terry thrived. The first-team all-Western Valley district receiver finished the year with 46 catches for 829 yards and nine touchdowns.

“Patrick really bought into our system last season,” Hodgin said. “Patrick’s in the game changing category. He’s a big threat down the field. He has excellent speed. He’s just a big play guy.”

Following Saturday’s trip to UVa, Terry headed to the University of Maryland and today is at the University of Richmond. Tomorrow, he plans to go to Virginia Tech.

“He’s going on some recruiting trips right now,” Hodgin said. “He’s been to Virginia for its 7-on-7. He went to Maryland. He’s at Richmond today and he’s going to Virginia Tech tomorrow. This week is important for him.”

Terry, who may make a decision in July, is a standout in track and field as well. He has run a 10.69 in the 100-meter dash and a 6.44 time in the 55-meter dash according to MileStat.com. He also runs the 200 meters and has posted a personal best of 22.75 in that event.
