Earlier in the year this past April, Byron Terry took an unofficial visit to Florida, where he witnessed the Gators’ annual spring game.
Over the weekend, the Eagle’s Landing Christian (McDonough, GA) defensive back made another unofficial visit to Gainesville, and reconnected with defensive coordinator Geoff Collins.
“He’s truly a great coach,” Terry said of Collins. “It’s been great getting to know him. That’s my guy right there.”
The 2017 prospect found himself experiencing the game day atmosphere by spending time on the sidelines for pregame warm-ups for Florida’s 32-0 win over North Texas on Saturday. During the non-conference match-up, Terry was also in the stands
“It was great,” he said. “Coaches greeted me and what not, you know? I met some fans and took pictures. Chilled with some of the [verbal] commits during the game. Talked to all the players I knew and stuff like that. Overall, I had a lot of fun.”
UF last night was great! Really enjoyed it. There’s nothing like the swamp at night. #GoGators #swamp17 🐊🔶🔷 pic.twitter.com/IEXZ11KLt5

Over the summer, Terry spent time at camps hosted by Clemson (June 7), Wake Forest (June 8), North Carolina (June 9) and North Carolina State (June 10).
The cornerback also made an unofficial visit to Florida A&M on April 23 and is a natural fit at Nickel for the next level. For now, he hopes for another unofficial visit with the Gators, but this time when they travel to Fayetteville for an SEC divisional crossover against Arkansas. Terry reminds us of Notre Dame freshman cornerback Julian Love.
