West Virginia recruiting coordinator Zach Motley went into the Tampa area and offered wide receiver Terence Doston. Along with the Mountaineers he currently holds offers from Vanderbilt, Florida Atlantic, Troy, Florida International, Tulane, South Alabama, Cincinnati, South Florida and Western Kentucky.
Listed at 5’10” Doston isn’t considered a big receiver, but he plays big. He has strong hands and fights the defender for the ball. He come backs to the ball and once the rock is in his hands, he uses his speed to take it to the house.
With his speed he can immediately get behind the secondary. If they play off him he’ll get into the open space, then make a defender miss for a big gain.
Terence has been keeping his eye on the Mountaineers. “I’ve watched many games this season. I like the offense and how it is ran.” Said Dotson
The West Virginia offense is designed to get their play makers the ball and Terence has noticed. “I feel like I would be a good fit since I’m fast and shifty. Their playbook is designed to get playmakers the ball. I feel like I can be one of those playmakers.”
Doston is a fan of former Mountaineer Tavon Austin and you can tell with the way he runs with the ball.
Terence is not all football. He got back to me after he was done with baseball practice. “I’m a utility player, but I mainly play centerfield because of my speed and I can also pitch.” Said Terence.
I was curious, so I had to ask what all pitches he had in his rotation. “I throw a two-seam fastball, curveball and a changeup.”
Could West Virginia baseball coach Randy Mazey have a future centerfielder? Only time will tell and next time I will have to see if Terence wants to play baseball at the next level.
Even though he’s playing baseball he is till finding time to also run a little track and improve on the football field. “I’m working on getting stronger, bigger and faster. That’s why I’m doing track. And getting my footwork down.”
Currently there is no planned visit to Morgantown, but says “Hopefully I can soon.”
