6-0 1/2, 182-pound Halifax (South Boston, VA) wide receiver Patrick Terry visited several schools over the past few weeks, with one in particular leaving a favorable impression upon him. This Saturday, he will travel to Virginia Tech for Tech’s camp and in hopes of landing an official offer from the Hokies.
“I’m going to Virginia Tech on July 8th,” Terry said. He visited Tech earlier this year for the spring game. “I’m very excited about it and I’m looking forward to showing what I can do.”
Terry, who boasts official offers from Duke and Maryland, visited the University of Virginia on June 24th for its 7-on-7 camp – not his first trip to Charlottesville, as he has been there many times for track meets – and expects to hear this week whether or not the Virginia staff will extend an official scholarship offer.
Terry visited Maryland last Monday, and it was this experience that really made a positive impression on him.
“At this point, it’s tough to name favorites,” Terry said. “I just came back from Maryland, and they are probably at the top if I had to say a favorite. But, after I come back from Virginia Tech, they’ll probably be at the top. The decision process is tough. I liked the way Maryland did things and I could see myself going there, but at the same time I’m fresh off my visit.”
Virginia Tech will be the school to watch if the staff extends a scholarship offer this weekend.
“I’ve been playing football since the 6th grade. Ever since I started playing, I’ve been a Virginia Tech fan,” Terry said. “Knowing I’ll be going to college, though, I have to take into account everything. When it comes to picking a college, I have to pick the right fit for me whether it’s Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, wherever. I’ve wanted to go to Tech for a while, but I have to take everything into account.”
North Carolina and N.C. State are also showing heavy interest in Terry, who could make a commitment this summer. If he doesn’t, look for him to wait until after his senior season.
“If I do commit, it would probably be near the end of summer,” Terry said. “If not, I want the season to be about the season so I’d wait until after the season to make my decision.”
As a junior last season, Terry racked up 46 catches for 829 yards and scored nine touchdowns. He earned first-team all-Western Valley district honors for his performance. Very fast, Terry has run a 10.69 in the 100-meter dash in track.
