Kentucky withdraws offer for Blake Terry

Guyer defensive end/middle linebacker Blake Terry has had his offer from Kentucky to play football revoked. He was informed on Sunday via telephone by his recruiting coach Larry Brinson.

Terry, who started at outside linebacker for Guyer as a sophomore and at middle linebacker as a junior, was moved to defensive end for his senior season. He was moved back to middle linebacker for the regular season finale against Southlake Carroll due to a Josh Allen injury. Since his return to his favorite position four games ago, Terry has been lights out for the Wildcats.

In those four games, the 6-1, 230-pound senior who was recruited as a linebacker, has compiled 48 tackles with nine behind the line of scrimmage. He’s also had two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. He had 20 tackles in Guyer’s playoff win over Marcus.

Before the move, he had 49 tackles with 14 behind the line, two sacks and 12 QB hurries from his defensive end position.

But on Sunday, he fell victim to the cruel game of college recruiting.

“I’m just a little upset,” Terry said. “If you make a commitment somewhere and they pull it basically they weren’t committed to you as much as you are to them. I know, being a good athlete, something is bound to come through. God has blessed me somehow. I have bigger things to worry about now and playing for my team right now.

“I was committed. I didn’t talk to anyone but them. I let everyone know my options were closed. I was solid. But I guess they weren’t as solid as me. I have to move on and pray about it and see what comes my way.”

Before he committed to Kentucky on June 22, he also had standing offers from Sam Houston State, UT-San Antonio, Louisiana-Monroe and Colorado State. Now he’s back on the “open market”, and Terry is anxious for another shot and possibly a chance down the road to prove to Kentucky that they made a mistake.

“I’d be more than happy to play in the SEC and play for a team that plays them and line up against them and show them that they made a huge mistake,” he said. “I just want to play somewhere and have them know they should’ve never let me go.”

  1. Blake is too good not to go D1 somewhere. Great attitude Blake. Everything will work out.

  3. Wow I can’t believe the mistake that Kentucky just made. If you have seen Blake play the last half of the season and especially the game against FM Marcus and Rufus Mason where he stood him up on the three consecutive plays from the 3 yd line and this his play in the playoffs.

    This is a man among boys. Blake go where you’re wanted. You will be great at the next level.

    Your loss Kentucky.

  4. not happy about this, and jokers decision to let a 3-star commit go who is extremely talented. Hope this kid goes to a good football school his talents and ball iq were promising.

  5. UK fan here. Unless he was dumped for another reason (off the field problem? personality conflict?), I feel simultaneously very embarrassed by my program and sorry for how this kid has been left high and dry this late in the recruiting process. I hope Blake does very well at the college level, regardless of where he ends up. Keep your head up kid.

  6. Blake, I hope you don’t hold this against UK, I don’t know why Joker pulled your scholarship offer, but it seems pretty low to me. Keep up the good attitude, and good luck wherever you go. I wish it would have been to UK.

  7. I heard that a fortune teller told Joker that Blake would make a game saving tackle/fumble recovery that would seal a victory against Tennessee, therefore his scholarship was revoked.

  8. College football recruiting is slimy game. Kids commit, then back out. Schools commit to a kid, then back out. This is far too common. This kid seems like a character guy and I hope he excels wherever he goes. As a UK fan, I don’t like this at all, but I realize it is part of the game.

  9. I second bluechip. Seems like Terry has a good head on his shoulders. Best of luck to him.

  10. Kentucky did the right thing…The Cats should be recruiting the same players as Alabama, LSU, Florida and evereybody else in the SEC recruits. If this kid was SEC material, every other SEC School would have offered him. The list of schools after him aren’t exactly football powerhouses.

  11. I feel so bad for Blake. Keep your chin up because you are a darn good player. Best of luck to you.

  12. @ Wade, I’m sure you played for a football powerhouse yourself. An athletic scholarship is tough to obtain at any collegiate level or conference. If you can’t positively support these young men, keep your comments to yourself, you jack wagon…

  13. Kentucky fan here and becoming less of a Joker Phillips fan by the day. This was a low class move by the coaching staff. The decision whether an athlete was worthy of a scholarship offer should have been solidified BEFORE the offer was made. You don’t toy with people’s futures this way, this is an embarrassment to the program and the university and should never have happened.

  14. Another UK fan here. I’m embarrassed for UK, but also for college football that this is commonplace. The only good thing is that it happened early enough for plenty of other opportunities to present themselves. Last year I remember several stories of schollie offers being revoked at the last minute.

    Blake Terry seems like a good talent with a great passion. Good luck in the future.

  15. Hahah this guy is a joke! nice fake stats idiot. Im glad UK pulled your offer you lousy piece of shit.

  16. I’m sorry but his offer sheet is less than stellar, especially if you are trying to move up in the SEC. The staff should not have made him an offer in the first place. Evidently UK has found more talented players to fill out their class. These things happen in college athletics, especially college football. I wonder if the same people who are trashing UK will feel the same way if one of their higher rated recruits decides to bolt for Oregon, which is rumored to be possible.
    Good Luck Young Man when one door closes another opens.

  17. I know Blake personally and he is a great young man and is a very good football player. Blake we will being praying for you and I am sure God has big plans for you (everthing happens for a reason). You keep playing the way you always play and I am sure a better school than UK will make you an offer. Keep the faith young man.

  18. Unfortunately college sports is big business. The pressure is on Joker to succeed. He must make decisions everyday that effect him, UK, and many young men. Blake sounds like an outstanding young man; he will land on his feet and find a better fit. It would be a shame for him to go to UK and be a bench rider. He needs to go where he will play and show his talent.

  19. Because of the design’s simple lines plus ability to morph from shape to shape while still being unmistakably Chloe 50831 , a potential customer can see in it whatever he would like to see, plus Nicolas Ghesquiere & Co. have taken to releasing it in every color,material plus silhouette possible.

  20. This is not the only slimy thing that UK has done. Current coaching staff told a player’s parent(s) that the player had too much character, so his services were not needed in the program. I guess they wanted the player to commit some armed robberies to prove that he has the pedigree to compete in the SEC. UK will never amount to anything as long as they have “crooks” running the football program. Pretty soon the NCAA will send a calling card; it’s just a matter of time. The current staff is ruthless and will soon self-destruct. Every HS coach in Texas (or anywhere else) should not allow UK fb coaches on their campus; they should be treated like the plague.

  21. an interesting venture for everybody. even novices rnas well: Just killing some in between class time on Digg and I discovered your article . Not normally what I favor to read about, but it was completely value my time. Thanks.
