When it comes to his team's performance, the 2012 football season hasn't exactly gone as well as McDonough (Ga.) Henry County linebacker Terence Waugh had planned. But the versatile 6-foot-2 defender has an individual success, leading his team in sacks with six.
Waugh has also seen interest pick up in him off the field, recently netting an offer from Memphis to bring his FBS total to 12.
With schools like Boise State, Ohio and Missouri knocking on his door, Waugh is taking his time scheduling his official visits. However, he did recently finalize plans to take a December trip to Colorado State.

"They've been talking to me for a while," Waugh said of the Rams. "I've never been out there before so it should be a totally new experience."
Waugh currently lines up at defensive end for Henry, but is being recruited by most schools as an outside linebacker. He said he can play either position, as long it means he's getting after the quarterback.
"I just like to use my ability and my speed to get around the edge," Waugh said. "I'm always trying to get after the quarterback. There's nothing like the feeling of getting a sack."
Waugh has also received increased interest from Auburn. He visited the Tigers once this season already, and will be in town for another visit this weekend.
"They told me they're interested," Waugh said of the Tigers. "They told me they like my size and they're waiting to see some more of my film."
With Waugh's season coming to a close he said he's hoping to cement his official visit plans shortly.
"I want to wait until my season is over," he said. "Then I'll get all of that in order."
With his interest stretching from nearly coast-to-coast, Waugh said he's not concerned with leaving his home state to play college football.
"I don't mind it at all," Waugh said. "I've been in Georgia all of my life. I wouldn't mind getting away."
