Tamorrion Terry made a name for himself Wednesday during Florida State’s spring practice.
The redshirt freshman made a sensational circus catch, tipping it to himself twice before hauling in the catch with redshirt freshman defensive back Ontaria Wilson draped all over him.

Two things here: First, what incredible concentration by Terry to catch that pass in double coverage. Second, it feels good to see redshirt junior quarterback Deondre Francois drive that ball down the field after a season-ending knee injury a year ago.
Terry was a four-star prospect and the No. 32 receiver in the Class of 2017 out of Turner County High School (Ga.), according to 247Sports.com.
His ESPN recruiting bio read: “he attacks the ball at its highest point and will extend in a crowd.” He certainly showed that Wednesday.
Terry is competing for playing time with Florida State only having five returning scholarship receivers. Only senior Nyqwan Murray and junior Keith Gavin have contributed meaningfully to the Seminoles. Murray was FSU’s leading receiver with 40 catches, 604 yards and four touchdowns. Gavin caught 27 passes for 278 yards.
Sophomore D.J. Matthews and redshirt junior George Campbell are the other returning wideouts. Florida State also added Georgia Southern transfer Tyrell Moorer this spring. The Seminoles will add four receivers from the Class of 2018 this summer.
Terry got a jump on the competition, though, with this play. Sure, it came during a 7-on-7 drill with no pads, but it still required a tremendous amount of athleticism and ability to pull off.
