For the last two seasons, the Virginia Cavaliers’ offense has gotten big contributions from one of its smallest players. After 51 receptions for 584 yards in his sophomore campaign, slot receiver Olamide Zaccheaus busted out in 2017: 85 receptions (more than the next two receivers combined), 895 yards receiving, and another 187 yards rushing (good for second on the team behind Jordan Ellis).
All of that from a guy who clocks in at 5-foot-8.
Now UVA’s class of 2019 has locked in its second player shorter than 5-foot-9, in Blacksburg’s Tiquest Terry.
Terry is a burner out of the slot and a return guru, part of a potent offense that led Blacksburg to the state quarterfinals. UVA was his first offer in April 2017. Wake Forest, Temple, and East Carolina all followed suit.
This is one of the in-state kids I’ve most wanted to see UVA land.
