Wake Forest, N.C. - Terrell Hartsfield of Wake Forest, N.C. is a big time athlete that will be enrolling at Texas Tech in January of 2011 after a stint at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va. this Fall.

A two time conference player of the year ('07/'08) at Wake Forest-Rolesville, Terrell Hartsfield is an exciting prospect because of his athletic talent combined with his on the field playmaking ability. His player of the year status speaks of what he's capable of as a football player, but the high school record books are littered with players that didn't have the athletic ability to star on the next level.

At 6-4 and 215 pounds, Hartsfield also set his high school records in both the 110 meter hurdles (14.7) and the triple jump (43'11").

Prunty's Carolina ties pay off

Because he had some work to make up in the classroom, he didn't land on the board for most college scouts, but locally, NC State knew enough to try and keep him under the radar and offered him a scholarship last year despite sitting out the 2009 season.

New Texas Tech outside linebacker coach Robert Prunty was the former coach at Hargrave and scouted the area extensively and offered Hartsfield a scholarship once he moved to the college ranks.

"I've known Coach Prunty," said Hartsfield, "and I trust him. He's going to be my position coach at Texas Tech, and that's why I committed to them."

Hartsfield's plan is to play for Prunty's former team at Hargrave before heading to Lubbock in January.

"I know I have a lot of work to do to get there [in January], but I'm willing to do it."

Hartsfield is the fourth commitment for Head Coach Tommy Tuberville's Red Raiders joining wide receiver Javares McRoy, linebacker Devon Hocutt, and quarterback Michael Brewer.

Scout will have more extensive video on the newest Red Raider in the very near future.
