Alpharetta WR Brandon Terry commits to ACC school

Alpharetta High School is loaded with big-time wide receivers this year. Brandon Terry committed to Wake Forest on Monday, joining his teammate and fellow wide receiver Michael Bennett (committed to UGA) as major-college prospects.

“Brandon visited Wake on Sunday, and did really well at their camp,” Alpharetta coach Jason Dukes told the AJC. “He really likes Wake. That’s the place he wants to be.”

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Terry was also considering offers from Iowa, Wisconsin, Central Florida, Tulane, Mississippi State, Purdue and Connecticut, and had generated serious interest from Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Last year as a junior, Terry had around 22 receptions for 500 yards and four touchdowns.

“Brandon is a very long and lean kid, who is good at getting separation [from the defensive backs] while running down the field,” Dukes said. “He has really sure hands, and is can take a lick and keep going.”

“With both he and Michael Bennett, it gives us a lot of options with what teams have to do to defend us all over the field.”

At Wake the young man can play big-time football and receive a big-time education – if he learns his lessons well. Wake represents college as it should be.

If Georgia Tech really wants to sell tickets ,they need to do a better job on their home schdule. example for 2010 they have scheduled South Carolina State and Middle Tennessee State. Who wants to spend money on tickets to watch this junk.

Hey milton dawg….can you read? This is a blog about a young man signing with Wake Forest. Why are you talking about the dogs getting a commitment from some kid no one ever heard of? Oh, and he is a “hoss”, right? How many games have you seen him play over there in Manning, SC? You need to get a life.

Smart move. He won’t have to worry about landing a job at Church’s Chicken when he graduates. Some schools try to make all their recruits think they are just graduating to the NFL after majoring in Leisure Studies.
