Long Beach Poly (Calif.) wide out Terrence Austin is having the kind of season everyone expected him to have and could finish the year with over 1,000 yards through the air, a pre-season goal. The athlete recently locked in another trip and has just one slot open right now.
Austin, 5-10, 165 pounds had a huge summer impressing at both the SoCal Nike Camp and USC skills camp last spring. The receiver has good hands, runs well and might be the most polished receiver in the west region this year.
The Jackrabbits have been playing two quarterbacks during the year and it was tough to get an offensive flow earlier in the season but things have picked up in recent week.
"Yeah, I think we've gotten better every week," Austin said. "I can't complain too much, I already have 750 yards and five touchdowns and that's more than I had all of last season. There are some things we can still get better at and work on but I've seen us making strides and we're starting to peak at the right time."
On the recruiting front, Austin has taken an official visit to Notre Dame and is set for visit No. 2 and 3 later this month.
"I'm going to Oregon (Nov. 18) and then Miami (Nov. 25)," Austin said. "I also have Arizona locked up for (Jan 13) but I'm hoping to make my decision at the Army All-American (Jan. 7) so I might have to try and move that up.
"I'm also going to take an official visit to UCLA for sure since that will be the one visit my parents can come and check out too. Cal and USC are a couple of other schools I'm talking with but neither has offered yet. Right now, it's still UCLA and Notre Dame out in front. I had a great time on the trip to Notre Dame and you can see they're really building something right now.
"UCLA didn't play too well this past weekend but it's still a great school and I love the location, coaching staff and opportunity to play. I'm going to try and take my visits with an open mind and I want to make sure to give everyone an equal chance. It should be a fun next couple of months."
