Dominique Terrell has emerged as one of the top overall prospects in the state of Virginia’s 2011 class; in fact, he is rated number one overall right now by VirginiaPreps.com. College coaches have taken notice of the 5-10 1/2, 165-pound Osbourn Park (Manassas, VA) standout, who has been verbally offered by Liberty, Maryland, Pitt, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

“Offers can’t come in until September 1st, but this past spring a lot of coaches showed interest in him,” Osbourn Park head coach Brian Beaty said.

Osbourn Park’s starting quarterback, free safety and return specialist, Terrell, who transferred to Osbourn Park after his freshman year, is an excellent overall athlete that earned first-team all-district honors at defensive back and first-team all-region honors at return specialist last season.

“I didn’t know what to expect out of him last year,” Beaty said. “I hadn’t coached him before. Like any young kid, he made a couple of mistakes. But, I also saw him maturing throughout the year. I wouldn’t say this was a surprise, but what I’m real impressed with is how explosive a runner he is. He has that second and third gear. His arm is stronger and he’s throwing better now, so hopefully he’ll continue to develop.”

Whether quarterback is in Terrell’s college future is a question, but Coach Beaty certainly is happy to have him as his starting signal caller.

“To be a quarterback on that next level, this year and next year are big years for him,” said Beaty, who estimated that Terrell passed for close to 1,000 yards and rushed for around 1,000 yards last season.. “The jury is still out there, but I know college coaches think he’s a good enough athlete right now. He had a good season last year. He showed his explosiveness.”

Beaty’s 2008 squad finished the year at 4-6, a record that easily could’ve been much better.
