2014 Columbia (GA) OL Terronne Prescod has 10 Offers

2014 OL Terronne Prescod (6’5, 320) of Columbia High in Decatur, Georgia is a talented big man with multiple offers that can slide inside to play guard or outside to play tackle. Louisville, Virginia, Marshall, Louisiana Lafayette, FIU, East Carolina, Appalachian St., Georgia St., Ole Miss, and Missouri have extended offers.

Columbia’s junior standout told Varsity Preps that Missouri and Marshall are recruiting him the hardest currently. “Clearly, its between them,” he said. “I’ve spoken to Coach Alex Grinch at Missouri a few times, I really like him. I haven’t gotten the chance to visit Missouri yet, but I plan to shortly. The staff says they need a big lineman and I’m a perfect fit for their program.

Marshall sends me handwritten letters every week saying I’m a great fit for their program and that they really want me. The staff really wants me to visit to get a feel for things on campus.”

Prescod has visited Auburn, Alabama, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Georgia, and Georgia Tech for Junior Days and mentioned which programs stood out to him. “Auburn is a school I really like, but my mom went with me to the Junior Day at Alabama and came away impressed with them.”

He feels that a pair of SEC West programs might be offering him soon. “I think Auburn and Alabama are close to offering, they’ve said they want to see me during spring practice and see how I’ve progressed during the offseason.”

This summer, Prescod plans to camp at Florida, FSU, Georgia, Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, and is considering Clemson and South Carolina.

Of all the programs that have contacted him, he says one school stands taller than the rest. “My favorite was Auburn, but they slowed on me after Coach Chizik was fired. Right now things are wide open for me, but I still like Auburn.”

There are a couple of factors that will carry more importance as he makes his college choice. “I’m looking for a good engineering program with a good graduation rate. My mom will have to be on board with my decision, too,” he said. “I’d like to stay closer home so I can travel back and forth easier.”

Prescod feels he has multiple strengths that will help him emerge as a top offensive lineman prospect. “I’m powerful and strong, I can lock on and drive defenders back. I have a wide body that makes it difficult to get a consistent pass rush against me. I’ve also been working on my footwork and getting my wind up, running extra.”

With signing day not until February, Prescod doesn’t wan’t to wait that long before making his decision. “I’d like to be committed before my senior season starts.”
