Santaluces standout looking for first offer
Each recruiting cycle several players do not get the attention from colleges their play on the field warrants. That is holds true for Santaluces two-way star Terrance Floyd. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder plays both wide receiver and cornerback for Santaluces, but has yet to land that first offer.
"No offers but I'm talking to a few schools," said Floyd. "Cincinnati, Wake Forest, FAU, Miami, Bowling Green and a few others."
Despite not receiving any offers to date, Floyd says he talks to a trio of coaches the most and feels confident one will come through with an offer soon.
"At FAU I talk to Coach (Jared) Allen, at Cincinnati I talk to Coach (John) Jancek, and I talk to Coach Lobo (Steve Lobotzke) at Wake Forest," said Floyd. "FAU tells me they are real close to offering a scholarship, but there are a few more things they have to look at."
The final position Floyd would play is still up for debate, and the 2011 prospect is open to playing either side of the ball at the next level.
"Some of them want me to go there and play wide receiver others want me to play corner. When they ask me, I just tell them I'll play whatever they want me to play."
Floyd went on to break down his strengths at both positions.
"As a receiver, I'm good at catching the ball and I'm good at not getting tackled by one person. I always at least break the first tackle.
"At corner, I think that when the balls in the air I can find the ball good. I can jump up with the receiver and deflect it. It's hard to catch a lot of passes on me."
This coming fall Floyd has a couple personal goals he has set for himself to strive for on the field.
"I want to score more touchdowns, on the defensive side of the ball I want to get on the season probably like 4 picks, and that's just really it."
Floyd and his Santaluces teammates will travel to Delray Beach Atlantic May 28 for their spring game.
