When Willie Taggart arrived in Tallahassee, there were a lot of new names for him to learn. Such is life for a football coach.
But one of the first names he knew of will be quite surprising to Florida State fans — Tamorrion Terry.
“He’s one of the first guys that I was able to remember his name,” Taggart said according to Seminoles.com. “Because he was making plays every day out in practice.”
Terry didn’t see the field last year, as he redshirt in his first season, but Taggart immediately noticed him in bowl practices. In the spring game, Terry caught the attention of the Seminoles faithful as well.
Last Saturday in the Garnet and Gold Game, Terry recorded 4 catches for 129 receiving yards and a touchdown. That includes a 47-yard completion, where he nearly scored his second touchdown before succumbing to a tackle at the goal line.
Seminoles receiver Auden Tate declared for the NFL draft this offseason, so Florida State is looking to replace its most important receiver from last year. While Tate was tied for the team lead with 40 catches and was second with 548 receiving yards, he led Florida State with 10 touchdown receptions. The rest of the team only combined for 11.
That hole should provide Terry plenty of opportunity to shine as a redshirt freshman in 2018.
