Terry is no stranger to the University of Miami. The talented center snaps the ball to current Hurricanes QB commit Alin Edouard and lists the late, great Sean Taylor among his favorite players. Although UM has shown interest, they have yet to offer Terry.
That may change in the near future. Terry has attended Hurricanes head coach Al Golden’s Football Camps on multiple occasions, the most recent on June 8 where he won the OL MVP. The younger cousin of San Diego Chargers’ Corey Liuget, Terry doesn’t have to look far for football advice. “One person I’ve looked up to is my dad and the other is my big cousin Corey Liuget,” said Terry. “I learn a lot about blocking D-linemen because he gives me some good tips on what he would do so blocking becomes easy.”
When he’s not playing football, Terry likes to showcase his ability on the basketball court. “Basketball has helped me a lot on the football field because it’s helped me with using my feet a lot better.” However, if he had to choose, the athletic center would rather play football, “DEFINITELY!”
With high school football around the corner, Terry is focused on getting more pancakes this year. “Playing center I feel is the best position on the field because not one play can be started without you and you have a lot of responsibility,” Terry said. “The strength of my game is definitely my knowledge and my weakness is probably finishing my blocks downfield.”
When asked about snapping the ball to current Miami commit Alin Edouard, “It’s a great feeling snapping to Alin because you have so much confidence in him because he’s such a playmaker,” said Terry.
As Miami begins to enter the picture, could the two high school teammates play together in Coral Gables?
Terry said that Miami had been recruiting him, not heavily, but since winning the OL MVP at Golden’s camp, their interest has begun to grow.
On if he wants to stay in Florida, said Terry, “It doesn’t matter to me at all where I go to school as long as I get the opportunity to play there – I’m not really worried about location.”
The 3-star prospect is ranked the No. 59 OG and No. 155 in the state of Florida (247Composite)
