A little over two months after making his commitment to Virginia Tech, Halifax County (South Boston, VA) wide receiver recruit Patrick Terry seems just as thrilled about his decision as he was the day he made it. There are many things, but one thing in particular he is looking forward to about his future as a Hokie is that he will be catching passes from Hampton star quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
The two certainly connected well at Virginia Tech’s senior camp in July and hope to do the same once they are in the program.
“After me and Tyrod met, it was like an instant bond,” Terry said. “We played real good on the field at the camp. Coach Beamer was aware of that. Tyrod’s father saw how well we did. He came up to me at the camp and said he wanted me to play football with his son (laughs). I believe Tyrod and I can do great things at Virginia Tech. I’m excited about working with him.”
The receiver will hook up with his future quarterback when Virginia Tech hosts Georgia Tech later this month.
“I believe I’m going to the Cincinnati game and I’m definitely going to the Georgia Tech game,” Terry replied when asked if he was going to any Virginia Tech games this year. “Actually, I called Tyrod Taylor this past Saturday and talked to him. He said they just lost their first game. I just asked him if he was going to the Georgia Tech game on the 30th and he said ‘yeah.’ We are going with Davon Morgan.”
Since he committed, Terry has not only spoken with fellow recruits but has also kept in close contact with Virginia Tech coaches.
“It’s been great,” Terry said of his communication with the Virginia Tech coaches. “I talk to Coach Sherman quite often. I talk to Coach Stinespring quite often. I tried to call them every weekend, but now that the season started I can’t really talk to them as much. I did get a letter from Coach Stinespring [yesterday].”
Terry knows of Tech’s success in the 2007 recruiting class. He is proud to be a part of it.
“I went on the internet and saw a list of their recruits and it was a lot of them (laughs),” Terry said. “Virginia Tech picks the top players in the nation and I feel honored and blessed to be part of this recruiting class of 2007. I think it’s going to be one of Virginia Tech’s best classes. I think we’re going to continue on the road the program is on now.”
