FSU football could have its first 1,000 yard receiver since Rashad Greene in 2014. Tamorrion Terry continues to be explosive for the Noles.
FSU football wide receiver Tamorrion Terry is coming off ACC Player of the Week honors for his performance against Boston College.
Terry led the Noles with seven receptions for 156 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown being a 74 yard bomb from James Blackman in less than a minute after Boston College had opened up a 14-3 lead in the second quarter.
It was his first 100 yard game this season and put just 198 yards away from crossing the 1,000 yard mark with likely three games remaining on the schedule should the Noles beat Alabama State Saturday.
Then the question could be would Terry suit up for the bowl game or declare for the NFL Draft and concentrate on that option?
Since the start of last season, Tamorrion Terry has 18 receptions of 30+ yards, trailing only CeeDee Lamb (22), Michael Pittman (19) and Tylan Wallace (19). Ten of those catches went for TDs. Only Lamb (13) has more.

I predicted FSU football wouldn’t have a 1,000 yard receiver this season based more so on the added attention Terry was likely to receive from opposing defenses after his breakout year in 2018.
I also thought Keyshawn Helton and D.J. Matthews would take a few targets away and of course Helton was lost for the year due to injury in the Clemson game.
Terry’s averaging 80 yards per game which would put him over the mark should those averages hold true through three games.
Ironically, Terry would have already surpassed the 1,000 mark had he not had a case of the drops at different times this year.
He’s had opportunities to catch passes and be off to the races for big gains and lapses in concentration have cost him a lot of production. The crazy thing about that is he’s still No. 3 in the ACC with 802 yards and tied for third in the conference with seven touchdowns.
He’s also third in the conference averaging 20.05 yards per reception while already surpassing all of his totals from last season minus one touchdown.
If Terry finishes the season strong he’ll be in rare company with FSU great Rashad Greene (2x) and Kelvin Benjamin as the only FSU receivers in the last decade to cross the 1,000 yard mark.
