On the golden state recruiting trail: JUCO athlete gets bombarded with offers

February 20, 2015 was a landmark day for Lorenzo Terry of Los Angeles Harbor College.

Terry, who lines up at defensive back and returns kicks for L.A. Harbor, came home to four scholarship offers - all in one day.

The former West Valley (Hemet) star said he was offered by Old Dominion, Idaho, Middle Tennessee State and Rhode Island.

Terry, who wasn't offered a scholarship while in high school, said that the recent scholarship pledges are "a huge relief."

Said Terry: "I've worked so hard in high school and I didn't get the exposure everyone else had because of where I played. But I didn't give up and I prayed. And now it's finally happening."

Terry adds that Old Dominion is his front runner, but said he's not rushing a decision and will continue to let the recruiting process play out.


Las Vegas didn't just get athletes competing in the 2015 Pylon 7-on-7 tournament from Feb. 28-March 1, but the town's NCAA Division I university had plenty of visitors too.

High school athletes from the Class of 2016-19 got a chance to tour the University of Nevada-Las Vegas campus. Club teams like DB Guru (Fresno), the Bod-E-Shop (Fresno/Clovis) and the Frat Boyz (Southern California) received an opportunity to try on UNLV football jerseys, meet the Rebel coaching staff and roam around the Mountain West Conference campus.


Keyon Riley of traditional Orange County powerhouse Servite (Anaheim) ended his February with scholarship offers filling his mailbox.

Riley, Class of 2016, received pledges from San Diego State, Oregon State and Washington during the week of Feb. 24-27.

The 6'2" Riley - who doubles as a cornerback and strong safety - also holds an offer from Colorado State.
