2012 Intro: Zach Terrell
Zach Terrell has been playing varsity basketball and football for the last few years at Homestead. He started all of last year under center as a sophomore a year ago. However, this season he has taken another step forward and has turned in a great start to the year. "We're doing pretty good," he modestly stated. "We're 5-1 on the season and I'm doing pretty well myself. I've thrown for a little over 1,200 yards, I think it might even be more than that and rushing, I've rushed for 400 something yards. I don't know the exact stats." Colleges don't need to know the exact numbers to know they have a pretty good prospect in the 6'3, 185-lb junior. He has height, athleticism, and a good head on his shoulders. As a result, he has been hearing from several of the Midwest's best schools. "Indiana, Purdue, Ball State, Toledo, Michigan State, Northwestern are recruiting me," he said. "I was at Purdue last weekend; I'm going to Michigan State this weekend, and a lot of different games later on." The in-state Boilermakers showed Terrell a good time during their game against Toledo. "I thought it was a good experience. It was a good opportunity to see what Purdue has to offer and get a close up look at their style and what kind of offense they run and how they compete and different stuff like that. It wasn't the best game because they lost, but it was a good chance to see some of the facilities and the locker room and meet a couple more of the coaches." This weekend's visit to East Lansing will actually be the second time Terrell has been to Michigan State. "I went to a 7 on 7 tournament at MSU and the offensive coordinator watched one of our games and liked what he saw, so he made me come back to the 1-day camp the next day and I did really well. Ever since then, they've been very interested. I'm going up there this weekend to get another look at them and stay in contact with them and Coach Treadwell." Terrell was busy with camps this summer, attending them at Iowa, Toledo, Ohio State, Michigan State, Ball State, Purdue, and Indiana. He got some good feedback at those spots, even if has not resulted in any offers just yet. "From Ohio State, they had already offered two guys in my grade, so they were just saying I was kind of a backup plan. They already have two guys that they've offered, so I'm kind of on the end of the list. Iowa was very interested at first, but things have kind of slowed up a little bit. They seemed interested in offering awhile ago, so we'll just have to see how things go."
