5-star ATH Michael Terry visits in-state Texas Longhorns

San Antonio Alamo Heights five-star wide receiver Michael Terry made his way an hour and a half northeast to visit Texas this weekend.

It’s Terry’s second official visit of the cycle, following his April official visit to Nebraska, and he posted photos to social media after the trip.

Texas currently leads in the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine for Terry with a 45.4% chance of landing his commitment. But at the On3 Elite Series last month, he told On3 that if he had to commit that day, it would be to Nebraska.

Obviously, this official visit to Austin has a chance to change that.

The Longhorns came into his recruitment a little later than schools like Nebraska or Texas A&M — but the offer meant a lot to Terry.

“It’s a really big thing to get an offer from them,” he said last month. “Coming from my hometown, that’s a big school and they’ve had a lot of success. What Coach Sark has going on over there [is impressive]. He’s getting a lot of guys into the NFL and bettering their career.”

Michael Terry Recruit Profile

Terry is the nation’s No. 21 overall prospect, No. 1 athlete and No. 7 recruit from Texas in the 2025 cycle according to the On3 Industry Ranking — a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

On3’s Scouting and Rankings team wrote this about him as a prospect.

“True do-it-all football player who could project at a high level at upwards of four or five positions at the next level. Has lined up as a receiver, running back, quarterback and cornerback for his high school team. Measured in at around 6-foot-3, 215 pounds with good length. Registers as a strong athlete in track and field posting 6-4 foot high jump and wind-aided 10.83-second mark in the 100 meters as a sophomore. Transfers that athleticism to the field, where he is one of the more impactful jumbo athletes in the cycle on Friday nights. Shows the ability to separate and make plays at the catch point at wide receiver.

A nimble ball carrier with the ability to pull away when he lines up at running back. Could potentially grow into a jack-of-all-trades offensive weapon capable of lining up in the backfield, split out wide or as an H-Back. Also an intriguing option as a back seven defender. Has a linebacker frame with corner athleticism and fluidity. Has true positional ambiguity but an extremely versatile and useful skill set. Will need to hone in on one position and add technical skill as he’s yet to focus at one spot.”
