Virginia Tech has landed one of the fastest players in the state of Virginia. Following today’s senior camp, head coach Frank Beamer offered this standout wide receiver and received a verbal commitment a short time later.

“Virginia Tech actually offered today. Coach Beamer told me he wanted me to come. I was thinking then that I wanted to commit, but I took my time. I went on a tour of the campus and, after that, I went ahead and committed,” said Halifax (South Boston, VA) star Patrick Terry .

The 6-0 1/2, 182-pound Terry put on a show in the testing portion of today’s combine. He posted a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash and had a 34 1/2 vertical leap. In the one-on-one’s, he says he “clicked” with top quarterback recruit Tyrod Taylor.

“I started off the day good,” Terry said of his performance in the testing drills.

Virginia Tech was Terry’s childhood favorite, so obviously he’s very excited about the decision.

“I’ve wanted to go here since I was six,” Terry said. “It’s like a big dream. I can’t wait to get here. And I have to work harder to be the best I can before I get here.”

Terry was impressed with Tech’s players as well as the coaches.

“I thought Maryland’s players were nice, but the Tech players were something else,” Terry said. “They treated me like I was part of the team. They were showing me techniques and everything. They were really cool.”

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. He chose Tech over offers from Maryland and Duke.
