So, is Terry a better football player today than he was yesterday?
Kid is a stud regardless of stars. I haven't been more excited about a Spartan QB recruit since Smoker. Good to see Rivals relent and give him a 4th star, but ranking 20 other QBs ahead of him is a total joke.
Are their positional rankings updated? Either way, I don't care. He's going to make Rivals regret taking so long to recognize his talents. Guy's a stud and I'm glad he's going to play for the good guys.
FYI Sota (so this doesn't get auto-VIPed by the OP being VIP, I'm not going to quote you), Rivals is doing their positional rankings tomorrow. Expect Terry to improve from his #20 spot.

Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Terry's pro-style. He's a pass first/second/third then run. The common recruiting site tactic is to take run-first QBs and call them dual threats, though Terry's probably one of the best "true" dual threats in this class. He's not as dynamic a runner as some though, so he's not going to get his due, but I'd argue his style of play is the most dangerous in CFB (this Russell Wilson instead of Pryor).
Interesting, OT note: checked Russell Wilson's rivals page to see if he was rated as a "pro" or dual threat. This guy was a 2 star?

Upgraded to the #16 prostyle QB
Think Josh Freeman in college. Especially if Terry gets bigger.
I am really excited about this kid. the only thing that worries me is that if he doesn't start as a true freshman, then he is going to have an up hill climb unless our QB play next year is poor or Maxwell retains his spot. I want our QB play to be awesome, no matter who it is. If it's Cook or O'Connor, Terry might be riding in the passenger seat for most of his time here unless he can surpass them despite their experience.
People seem excited about O'Connor, too. They are only one class apart and I want both of them to play.

Damn it, Wilson's starting to grow on me. Could just imagine the manufactured outrage from some here at landing a 5'11, 2* qb

Nice article from behind the Blue Wall about Terry. Kid is being compared to RGIII.
They all arrive at the same story, all unprompted, all choosing it for what it says about Damion Terry off the football field, even though it took place on one.
Great pick up for the 2013 Class!!!!
Damion Terry made the second team.

Pennsylvania's Top 50 football recruits: No. 9 Cathedral Prep QB Damion Terry

on January 31, 2013 at 12:00 PM,
Somehow you get the feeling Michigan State stole this guy. A vastly underrated prospect as a three-star recruit, Terry still has one or two issues to work out before making a real impact at the next level, but the foundation as a quarterback grew to another level his senior season. … In three years as a starter threw for nearly 6,800 yards with 82 touchdowns. … Don’t forget, though, he is a dual-threat quarterback.
In helping guide the Ramblers to the state title in 2012, Terry threw for 3,559 yards and 50 touchdowns. He also rushed for 700 yards and 12 scores. And he threw only eight picks in 333 attempts. … A huge arm and Terry is not shy about using it. His size is perfect and he’s a smarter QB than you think. … Elusive and dangerous in the pocket under pressure and runs like a deer in the open field. … His biggest drawback is he tucks the ball pretty quick and looks to run. He’ll need to learn to hang in the pocket for that extra second or two.
A slightly underrated quarterback as a three-star recruit, Terry guided the Ramblers to a state title by throwing for nearly 3,600 yards and 50 touchdowns in 2012. He also rushed for 700 yards and a dozen scores.
There are not 9 better players in Pennsylvania than Terry.
I thought one of his best attributes was that he didn't "tuck the ball pretty quick and looks to run". Am I not remembering correctly or is this a product of poor scouting by the writer and/or not being knowledgable?

The latter of the two. He is a pass first QB, who doesn't look to scramble immediately. Just an example of poor opinion and scouting.

I like the excitement and I too am anticipating big things, but we say things like this way too much on here. How many of the nine have you seen? I mean, he's got a great ranking, not like he's been overlooked. Don't want to seem bitter bitching about all of our commits rankings.
Here are their top 12
1 Robert Foster Central Valley WR 6-2 185 Alabama
2 Patrick Kugler North Allegheny C 6-4 270 Michigan
3 Adam Breneman Cedar Cliff TE 6-5 225 Penn State
4 Dorian Johnson Belle Vernon OT 6-5 268 Pittsburgh
5 Alex Anzalone Wyomissing OLB 6-3 232 Florida
6 David Williams Imhotep Charter RB 6-1 200 South Carolina
7 Mike McGlinchey William Penn Charter OT 6-9 275 Notre Dame
8 Tyler Boyd Clairton WR 6-2 180 Pittsburgh
9 Damion Terry Cathedral Prep QB 6-4 218 Michigan State
10 Will Fuller Roman Catholic WR 6-0 170 Notre Dame
11 Zayd Issah Central Dauphin OLB 6-3 220 Penn State
12 Delton Williams Cathedral Prep ATH 6-2 205 Michigan State
From now until National Signing Day on Feb. 6, Andrew P. Shay will be profiling the Top 50 recruits in Pennsylvania.

I don't think Terry is too underrated. I think he's a stud but does still need a bit of development (as do they all). Pennsylvania was stacked this year with some real good talent. Glad we at least picked up Terry, Williams, and Harris out of there.
I had no idea Penn. was so loaded with talent. Good thing we have a few connections to the state now.
