In terms of high-profile recruits from the Class of 2016 who were selected to play in this year’s Blue-Grey All-American Bowl, few individuals come with as much recent fanfare as Terry Wilson from Del City (OK). And rightfully so.
Accordingly, the 6-foot-2 and 180-pound quarterback and Oregon commit was recognized this past weekend as one of the best in the business on the entire prep circuit during the brand’s nationwide Jersey Presentation Tour.
In the near future, of course, Wilson will line up for the South vs. North in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Jan. 9 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium. The game is one of three located in an NFL facility.
Prior to Wilson & Co. competing for bragging rights, a showdown between East vs. West takes place on Dec. 20 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. The finale is Blue vs. Grey on Jan. 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ Everbank Field.
Wilson first impressed our coaching staff of NFL veterans at June’s Blue-Grey Super Combine inside of AT&T Stadium. Once there, he took home the hardware as Offensive MVP following an eye-opening effort on the big stage.
Plenty changed after that audition. Wilson was a one-time Nebraska commit. He gave the Cornhuskers a pledge back in early May. A hot commodity ever since, the dual-threat decided that the Ducks were a better fit in early September.
Before moving to the next level, Wilson still has some unfinished business. Specifically speaking, and with the hype machine constantly surrounding him, he hopes to live up to the advanced billing in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl.
