Missouri Football Recruiting: Terry McLaurin Visits Illinois

Before he unofficially visited the Missouri Tigers on Saturday, 2014 wide receiver Terry McLaurin payed an unofficial visit to the Illinois Fighting Illini. It looks as if the Indiana native is currently leaning towards the Purdue Boilermakers.

Terry McLaurin has offers from the Purdue Boilermakers, Ball State Cardinals, Cincinnati Bearcats, Toledo Rockets, and Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

When looking at the film from his junior year, McLaurin has great hands, nice speed, and moves in the backfield. Most of his plays might be screens and hooks, but he can still take the top off the defense.

Also, when he runs, McLaurin does not use many moves after he catches the ball to run downfield. He’s not the player that will “juke you out of your shoes.” The only thing he will do is stiff arm you, but has the ability to just run right past defenders for touchdowns.

In 2012 as a junior, McLaurin recorded 820 receiving yards on 33 receptions and twelve receiving touchdowns. He also ran for 198 yards on sixteen carries and two rushing touchdowns. He has two special team touchdowns with two punt return touchdowns.
