Fort Wayne QB Is A Fitzgerald Fan

Fort Wayne QB Is A Fitzgerald Fan

With two offers in hand and plenty of interest coming in, Homestead (IN) High School quarterback Zachary Terrell has been very busy sorting through his options. Northwestern is one school that stands out—much thanks to their head coach.

"I really like Coach Fitzgerald's program there—it's one of the top in the country," said Zachary Terrell. "(With) his coaching style and staff, as well as their facilities, they have as good of a shot as anyone at being the Big Ten champs."

Terrell has met with Pat Fitzgerald twice—once on a visit last fall, and again this spring. For Terrell, something about Fitzgerald really stands out.

"He's a great guy, a great family guy," Terrell said of Fitzgerald. "Whenever I see him, his family is always around. He's very open and honest which I respect and I like. He's a very respectable guy with a family-first mentality, which I like a lot."

The 6-3, 205-lb. quarterback also admires Fitzgerald's coaching style and more specifically, his spread offense.

"I don't know any quarterback that wouldn't like that system, where you get to control the ball and make plays," Terrell said.

During his visit, Terrell got the chance to explore Northwestern's campus and see what Evanston is like. He enjoyed that experience.

"I really like campus a lot," Terrell said. "It's cool being close to downtown Chicago. I definitely like the campus. The facilities are really nice, everything is close by, and everything is very nice."

Things have picked up for Terrell. He now has two offers in hand, and things are beginning to get hectic. As he added, "it's a good hectic."

Terrell has offers from Kent State and Western Michigan, and has picked up interest from Northwestern, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Purdue, Wisconsin, and others.

Northwestern is one of the schools that standout on Terrell's list, but the schools that have offered each hold an early lead in his recruitment.

"The ones that have offered me are high up there, but Northwestern, Michigan State, IU, Toledo, and Northern Illinois are the top couple of schools," Terrell said.

This summer, Terrell is planning on attending camp at Indiana, Iowa, and Western Michigan, and hopes to attend a few more. He's still undecided on whether to stop in Evanston again.

As a junior, Terrell averaged 204.3 passing yards per game, and over 50 rushing yards per game. As a sophomore, Terrell threw for 1,810 yards and completed over 60% of his passes in nine regular season games, while rushing for 686 yards. Recommended Stories
