Goose Creek (S.C.) wide receiver Tramel Terry reopened his recruitment Sunday, potentially cutting down the infamous Fab Four from Dawg Night, to just a Fab Few.
Chuck Reedy, Terry's coach, said he had spoken with Terry after his visit to South Carolina this weekend and was told by his talented receiver that he will continue to talk and visit programs vying for his signature in 2013.
"He likes Georgia a lot but he's just an 11th-grader, and like I told him, we have plenty of time. I think he was a bit tired of answering all the questions about how solid he was on his commitment and all the recruiting stuff, so he is just focusing on his season and then after the season is over he will get serious," Reedy said. "I expect that he will take all of his visits, and he may very well end up at Georgia."
Reedy said it was common knowledge that Terry was a very soft verbal to Georgia and it is not a hit on the program but rather just a way for Terry to focus on his play this year and enjoy the recruitment process a little more.
"To say he is a Georgia commit is stretching it a little bit. So far as I know, unless something has changed since I last spoke to him, he has made no official decommitment," Reedy said. "He hasn't made any official statement that I am aware of. It just seems this has been a bit blown out of proportion."
Emery Terry, Tramel's father, said his son had never raised any concerns with him about whether or not the coaching staff at Georgia would be in place. He offered his own insight as to why he thinks his son would want to reopen his recruitment.
"He's pretty much just focusing on this season at Goose Creek and I think it really just has more to do with, he's gone to a couple of different colleges. He went to Clemson with TJ (Burrell) and they had a great time," Terry said. "So I think he probably just wants to look at his options to whoever can meet his needs later on. I'm not too sure what he is doing, but I'm sure he'll make the right decisions in the long run."
Terry went on to say that the impromptu visit to South Carolina over Clemson had nothing to do with his interest level, but rather was a geographical decision.
"He was going to go to Clemson originally this weekend, but he had some other commitments in the area so he couldn't really travel that far," Terry said. "He sent me some text messages after the game, but nothing so far as recruitment stuff. He's just told me he liked Georgia, he liked South Carolina and Clemson, and that's about as much as he's really talked about but, you know, I guess he just wants to keep some options open down the line. That's a long way until 2013. "
