Over the last few seasons, Central Catholic linebacker Tim Terry has played with a ton of players that went on to get a scholarship from a Power 5 program. Terry’s hoping that soon he’ll be added to that list.
Terry (6-2, 210) has been a highly productive linebacker for a very successful football team. Last season, the 3-star linebacker collected 72 tackles and 7 sacks for Central Catholic.
Right now, Terry has been offered by Bowling Green, Buffalo, Toledo and Western Michigan while getting interest from West Virginia, Nebraska, Temple, Penn State, Cincinnati and Pitt.
Terry is a prospect that Pitt, in particular LB coach Rob Harley has been evaluating and in contact with over the last few months. This weekend, he’ll participate in the Pitt football camp over on the South Side and hopes that he can add an offer from his hometown school.
“I’m ready to show Pitt and my city what I’m really made of”, said Terry. “I talk with the Pitt coaches constantly, every week for the most part. We just talk about our lives and how things are going with the football recruiting and everything.”
Since the staff is so familiar with him, I asked Terry what he thinks the Pitt coaches will be looking for this weekend as they evaluate him.
“They want to evaluate me in person to see if I’m a coachable player and they want to see how well I can move. I think they also want me to get a chance to evaluate their coaching as well”, said Terry.
The ultimate goal is to receive an offer from Pitt which would be a dream come true.
“It would mean a lot to get an offer from my hometown school. That’s every kids dream. It would mean a lot to me and my family.”
Finally, I asked Tim Terry why he thinks he deserves an offer from Pat Narduzzi and Pitt.
“I think I deserve an offer from Pitt because I’m a hard working player that they will getting. I love to hit, I can move quick and I can cover. I’m a hungry player that loves football and I’ll do whatever it takes to be great.”
All the best to Tim this weekend!
