Nick Terry Talks About Boise Visit
"It was everything I expected and more," he said. "As a city, Boise is probably one of the nicest places to live," he added.
"We got there on Saturday morning," he stated. "We met all of the coaches, had a meeting with Coach Petersen for about 40 minutes, and we talked a lot about academics just as much as football. I got a chance to go over the defense with Coach Avalos and Coach K as well. They run a lot of 4-3, 3-4, and even do a lot of stand-up blitzes. I think that would be a really good place for me to play."
"Basically, they're thin at D-line and want me to come in and compete for a spot," said Terry. "I think what stood out to me was how the fans knew that. There were fans yelling my name and even had one of them come up to me say 'we need you at D-tackle.' That was just really cool."
The Broncos may have come up short on the field, but the talented DT came away impressed with the performance of the Boise State defense.
"I thought the defense played really well," he said. "They got a couple sacks and they're always fresh. They rotate guys in and out. That allows them to always play with a high motor."
"Coach Pete is a great guy," said Terry. "He doesn't go and just recruit anybody. He wants his players to be good people on and off the field. He said he'd love to have me as a Bronco and you can see that it's about more than football with him."
Terry will take an official visit to Oregon State in just a couple weeks and says he'll sit down with his parents following the state playoffs and discuss his college decision.
"The plan is to take one more visit to Oregon State," he said. "We're in the playoffs and I'm hoping we'll be playing in December, but I could commit as early as the end of this month. Me and my parents will sit down after this last visit and discuss everything."
