Virginia Tech has hosted plenty of talented recruits over the past three weeks including three-star CB/ATH Terrance Howard who is from Texas but is spending his final season of high school football just a few hours away from Blacksburg at Queen City Collegiate in the Charlotte metro.
His visit for the Wofford game went quite well as he shared with us.
"My visit and VT was exciting. Honestly, it’s always been one of my favorite schools and just getting to finally feel the game day environment was a blessing!" Howard said.
He added this on why his visit was exciting.
"The gameday atmosphere, it was like everyone was a unit in the stadium. The love from the community and staff is always a great thing!" Howard said.
So what did Howard do while on his visit to Virginia Tech.
"While on the visit, I went to eat food in the indoor facility with some of the other recruits there and took some pictures in the jackets. I also spoke with coach (Pierson) Prioleau after that. Then they took us to the stadium to watch the players warm up and to get the true pregame feeling. Then after that, I knew there was much more to come," Howard said.
He also shared some insights on how his conversation went with safeties coach Pierson Prioleau.
"The conversation with coach was great. We talked about the camp I attended previously, and he also spoke with my parents about some stuff, just an overall warm welcome!" Howard said.
Howard is an intriguing potential target who was previously a cornerback primarily but is more of an athlete now that he's spending more time at wide receiver and as a returner. Through his first 2 games, he's averaged over 15 yards per reception as proof that he's definitely an intriguing prospect on both sides of the ball.
So with all that in mind, how would he describe the strengths and weaknesses of his game?
"My primary strength has always been my love for the game. The others are my speed, agility, and strength which allows me to play a great deal of skill positions. Of course, I have room for improvement and always will; so when it comes to my weakness, the one I feel needs the most work is my ball coverage. I say this because of my speed level, sometimes I play with receivers when I shouldn’t. I know I can catch them but I’m getting PBUs when they should have been INTs," Howard said.
Overall, his visit went well with Howard sharing this on how his visit impacted his view of Virginia Tech.
"The visit changed my view on VT a lot because I got to see it from the inside point of view with the coaches and the players, and then the outside, all the love from the alumni and people in the stands. That really made it feel like home," Howard said.
There are always late blooming prospect who break out every year towards the end of the recruiting cycle with Terrance Howard being a player to watch for the 2023 class.
