The Indiana Football Coaches Association placed Preston Terrell on their 6A Senior All-State team. Terrell, a 6’3, 180 pound receiver out of Brownsville High School was Purdue’s first commit in the 2021 recruiting class. He is is a 3* (86) recruit, the 14th best player in Indiana, the 117th wide receiver in the nation, and the 810 overall player according to 247 sports. He is Purdue’s third highest rated recruit in the 2021 class.
Terrell helped lead an explosive Brownsburg offense to an 8-2 record overall. They reached the Sectional Championship before falling to Carmel 21-7. They finished the season ranked as the 5th best team in Indiana according to Max Preps and the 4th best 6A team.
On the season, Terrell recorded 834 receiving yards on 54 receptions and 7 touchdowns. He averaged an impressive 15.4 yards per reception.
During his 3 year varsity career at Brownsburg, Terrell accumulated 2135 receiving yards, 152 receptions, 22 touchdowns, and averaged 14 yards per reception.
Terrell projects as a boundary receiver for the Boilermakers. He’s a long striding receiver with the ability to high point the ball in traffic. He’s more of a smooth than explosive, but his speed is deceptive. He has a gliding style that eats up ground with long strides.
He joins David Bell, Mershawn Rice, and Kory Taylor at the boundary position in 2021. I don’t see him as a player who steps onto campus and makes an instant impact. He’ll need to add some mass to his frame to help him fight off defensive backs, but he has the potential to be a long term starter once David Bell departs.
