College coaches from all across the country are interested in the speed and quickness of 5-10, 165-pound Osbourn Park (Manassas, VA) junior Dominique Terrell . Coaches differ in terms of how they would like to use Terrell, who has big-time potential on offense, defense and special teams.

“He’s a playmaker,” said Osbourn Park head coach Brian Beaty. “You see it in his sophomore film and his junior film. He knows how to get in the end-zone, but he’s not necessarily a finesse player. He’s a physical player. He’s a good tackler on defense. I think you want that toughness in any player.”

Coach Beaty believes that Terrell would like an opportunity to play quarterback. As a junior last season, Terrell rushed for 1,317 yards and eight scores but also showed off some passing ability, throwing for 827 yards and nine scores. When it comes time to choose from the many offers he will have received, position does not seem to be a big factor for the talented prospect.

“I’m sure if he could pick a position, it would be quarterback. I also know he’ll do whatever he needs for a team,” Beaty said. “I’ve heard a lot of different things. I’ve heard some say they will give him a shot at the quarterback spot. I’ve heard slot and I’ve heard about people giving him a chance in the secondary. I’m sure as far as quarterback goes this will be a big year to evaluate him. People are looking at running quarterbacks more and the Wildcat stuff.”

Terrell, who earned VHSCA second-team all-state honors as a punt returner in 2009, has been offered by a handful of ACC programs including Duke, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Schools from the Big East, Pac 10 and SEC have offered as well, bringing Terrell’s total number of offers to double-digits.

Maryland, North Carolina, N.C. State, Pitt, UCLA, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia are just some of the schools that have been represented at Osbourn Park in recent months. Head coaches have been by, including Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer and
