Scout.com five-star prospect Terrance Toliver, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver from Hempstead High in Texas has had a lot to talk about lately.
In October, Toliver was honored as a U.S Army All-American at a press conference in front of fans and media at his high school.
“It meant a lot to me to get selected to play in the Army Bowl,” Toliver said of his selection. “It was something that I was looking forward to doing. I am just ready to get out there on the field and showcase my skills and talents.”
Toliver has enjoyed official visits to three of his top five schools. He has toured Florida, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. He has two more visits scheduled with USC (11/24/06) and LSU (12/02/06).
Recruiting has been a lot of fun for Toliver so far, but the process is beginning to wear on him. He is looking forward to ending it when he announces his intentions in January.
“I have not been getting as many calls because I am not even answering the phone right now,” Toliver informed. “At first it was great, but now it is getting kind of old. I have been telling people that I am going to announce my decision at the game.”
“I have been on three official visits so far. I have been to Oklahoma, Tennessee and Florida. I am supposed to be going to USC this weekend for the Notre Dame game, and then I am going to LSU the first weekend of December.”
“I had a lot of fun on all of the visits. They treat you really nice and make you feel like you are a part of the family.”
He admits that there are two schools sticking out a little above the rest at this point in the process.
“I am going to be real honest,” he began. “Florida and LSU have really grabbed my attention.”
“Those are my two schools at this point. I have a good relationship with the coaches. I talk to them all the time. A good relationship with the coaches is something that is very important to me.”
“I know that both of those schools have a need for wide receivers. They are both losing some guys. Florida is losing Dallas Baker and LSU is losing three guys I think. There will be an opportunity to come in and compete for some early playing time.”
“The SEC will get you ready for the next level.”
Toliver was pumped to discover he had been re-ranked as the nations top receiver earlier this week.
“A guy called and let me know,” Toliver explained. “It was pretty exciting. I loved it.”
As a junior, Toliver hauled in 26 passes for over 500 yards earning All-District and All-region honors.
