Tramel Terry is not only good on the field, but off the field as well. Terry is an exceptional student that will actually graduate high school in December and be able to enroll in the college he chooses in January.
“I am an on the A-B honor roll, have a 3.5 and my core is a 2.8,” Terry told Scout.com. “I am going to graduate early. I went up to Clemson and talked to my home boy (Travis Blanks) about it and he enrolled early. Basically I am on track to do the same thing.”
Of course football is going to pay for school costs and the college coaches are lining up for Terry. He is a play maker and a leader, which has drawn the top programs to him.
“They say I am just a play maker,” terry said. “When they look at the film they see I make plays. They come to my school and see that I have a great work ethic. I did it as a junior and I stepped it up in the play offs. I know I have lot of people looking up to me and so I need to step it up as a leader so we can get back to the state championship.”
Terry committed to Georgia back in July of 2011 at a summer camp held on campus. A couple of weeks later he pulled that commitment off the table, but still remains highly interested in the Dawgs.
“I just loved the college town,” Terry said of why Georgia is still on his mind. “I am trying to get back up there on February 23rd. It is a special place. They only took one receiver in the 2012 class so that is a big plus for them too. They can certainly use me if I decided to go there."
Even an extra high school class isn’t keeping the Dawgs away from consideration.
“I have to take an extra Spanish if I want to go to Georgia,” he said. “I might do that this summer. If I had a top three Georgia would definitely be in it. I don’t have a top three just yet.”
The Clemson Tigers signed a teammate of Terry in the 2012 class. They certainly have his interest as well after visiting with his teammate.
“The offensive coordinator has me excited about what they are doing,” terry said of Clemson. “I watch film on them and in different places I can tell he likes to get receivers the ball in different areas and utilize their talent. I went to Clemson when T.J. Burrell went on his official visit, but they treated mine as an unofficial.”
The other home state school resides in Columbia. The Gamecocks of South Carolina is a program he has visited quite a few times.
“They were the first school I ever looked at,” he said of South Carolina. “It is like family. I started going there in my freshman year and every time I go there I get a feeling like nowhere else.”
He also likes the nostalgia of Notre Dame.
“I wanted to check it out,” he said. “I like the tradition of Notre Dame and college football is very big up there.”
The Florida Gators have been laying in the weed sand talking to Terry on Facebook. That changed Monday night when terry finally talked to receiver coach Aubrey Hill.
“Last night I talked to Coach Hill and he was just trying to get to know me and was excited to talk to me,” Terry said.
Tuesday came something else and after tweeting about an offer to Florida we got the update on the Gators from Terry. He talked to offensive coordinator Brent Pease and recruiting area coach Brian White.
“Florida just offered me today,” he said. “I talked to Coach Pease and Coach White and they told me they are really looking for me to get down there on spring break.”
“I would love to check it out because I am down there all summer. My father lives in Orange Park (60 miles away) and I actually have a cousin that lives in Gainesville and is a psychologist.”
