Florida State enters the 2018 season with a major question mark at wide receiver given that rising senior Nyqwan Murray and rising junior Keith Gavin are the only wideouts who have made meaningful contribution to the Seminoles.
That leaves a sizable chunk of playing time up for grabs. Redshirt freshman Tamorrion Terry may have seized some of it during the Garnet and Gold spring game on Saturday. Terry recorded 5 catches for 129 yards and a touchdown.
“Nobody can guard him,” redshirt freshman quarterback Bailey Hockman said, according to the Tallahassee Democrat’s Wayne E. McGahee III. “You can put him out there on anybody, and if I’ve got him 1-on-1, I’m going to take it. He’s a great player.”
Saturday was the latest flash of greatness for Terry this spring, which began with him making an outstanding circus catch in the Seminoles’ first practice.
Terry’s strong spring should not come as a surprise. The Ashburn, Ga., native was a 4-star prospect and the No. 32 receiver in the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
The highly touted recruit redshirted last season, but stood out to first-year coach Willie Taggart during bowl practice. He has not stopped impressing Taggart since.
“I thought I’d be able to play last year, but stuff happens,” Terry told Warchant.com. “I’m trying to show everybody what I can really do this season.”
If Saturday is any indication, Terry may be on his way to being the next star FSU receiver.
